An incredibly well thought out online multiplayer game
. My first experience with it was of the revolutionary
sort - finally a game that so closely resembled a MUD
, but had a graphical interface
. Listen up folk
s, we're talking drag and drop
inventory, incredible adventures, impromptu party battling, and all in all a fantastic game-playing experience to be had online. And then the fate
ful transition to a monthly fee
(Gamestorm)... of which I was more than happy to pay... and then the further transition to a vast and utter emptiness
, but for an apologetic note explaining the game had been discontinued. Oh, the angels cried tears of fire that day, I tell you.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who associates music from a certain time period with memories that are made during said period. Well, any song that was in heavy radio rotation at that time period (during my manic button pressing, mouse-swirling epic adventures) elicits nothing but warm fuzzies from me. Another personal project, after I've wrung my millions out of corporate America - restart the LOK server.
