Lol just kidding, it's a blatant WoW clone. A terrifyingly bad one, in which mediocrity seethes. Take a look at this awfulness.



And here's some awesome, insightful commentary.

Just thought I'd post this, I couldn't resist showing it to someone.

Edit: Whoops, wrong trailer.

aside from the name and style it clones nothing about WoW. in fact it more closely resembles the warcraft series.

and unless blizzard is getting a kick out of this it wont survive long .

Hopefully Blizzard does tolerate it, just so this wonderful GSprite company keeps churning out more things to face-palm at.

Hmm interesting.. if you think about it without prejudice, it looks kinda nice I guess. But, as you say, it's clear it takes a lot of inspiration from the Warcraft universe. I have to say, the town screen reminded me of the Zeus/Pharaoh games, and the battle screens reminded me of Heroes Of Might And Magic.

All in all, even if it does a good job at pretty much ripping some things off, it looks kind of interesting....unless it really just is an Evony clone...that banner that was just posted says it all I guess.. put in a picture of a babe and attract all the little kiddies.. as people often say when they join Evony: "Where are the boobs?"

Man I love that narrator's voice. So is it just me, but if you're going to put enough work in making a video of your game wouldn't you want to show some gameplay? They just displayed some concept art and screenshots of the game to some overly dramatic music.

But that would reveal the, most likely, awful gameplay.. bad plan.. you don't make money that way

On a side note... OMG:

I don't get it. The graphics guys obviously know what they're doing. Why not put their skills to better use and -try- to create some original O_o

And I also dugg this up. Quite relevant both to the games, and in general considering what kind of website this is:

Good grief. :| I feel sorry for anybody actually playing this and thinking it's original. (Doubtless, what GSprite hoped people would think.)

Also, once again...

...Because people love games with intense Battlts!

Now this is the kind of thing that destroys the art of videogames. Shame on them.

I agree with Hayo, cheap money making commercialism is not only killing game making but all professions.

What is it with all these medieval MMORPG / "jugs" (i.e. adverts) games anyway. How about some originality for a change.

Originality is a lot of work

It's a perfect example of someone applying valid business principles to a game. It's like someone "rebranding" your typical tomato sauce, applying an advertising concept that's worked brilliantly for the same audience, and selling it for a bit cheaper. I'd like to see how well this works out - how much can you make from producing generic rubbish?

Sometimes quite a bit, unfortunately. (No offense towards anyone who likes them.)

Random side note: A Steampunk MMORPG would be kinda cool. Or maybe something in the style of the Thief series.
