So You Think You Can Do Better?

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Come on, we all dream about creating our own MMORPG. For me that dream involves someone handing me ten million dollars and the Shadowrun license. Okay, I'll even just take the ten million dollars. But maybe your dream game is one that will really happen.

Well, perhaps you would be interested in some free tools to create a MMORPG. A company called
Kaneva is apparently providing you with the software tools you need to create a multiplayer online FPS or RPG. You can get the scoop in this article from MMORPG.com.

To be honest, I have not had much time to try messing around with the actual game creation toolset. From my limited look, it does appear you also need to have access to and some ability with a 3D graphics program.

I did try their "demo" game, Gorilla Paintball. It's basically an online FPS with some RPG elements.

If you are going to play I advise you to print out the
list of commands first as there's really no interface. I'm somewhat confused as to why my character is not a gorilla. But don't worry there are gorillas in the game. The graphics are not terrible and the whole paintball gun idea is pretty neat. However, the game loads quite a bit while you're moving around and I never saw more than one or two people online. Really, I can't recommend it unless you're desperate for a free game. Personally, I'd rather play Gunz or another free game I will be telling you about next week.

Still, I'm curious to see if any player-made games come out of the Kaneva toolset. I highly doubt anyone will ever make a big splash or real money with a Kaneva game, but, hey, if it's creative and original enough it might get you noticed. They also apparently host films and TV shows if that's more your style.


Edit: Just a quick note to let you know that the registration for the Desert of Flames Beta is now open. But you probably knew that already.

Wow. That sounds interesting. Too bad I don't have the time and a better PC to create my own MMORPG...
