[NM] Sorry, ODD Games, Retroactive Defamation Isn’t Real

Here at MMO Fallout, I have always taken the position that a developer’s previous work does not prohibit them from fixing what is broken or improving in future products. While we would like to see a world where games stop launching in a barely functional state, it stands to reason that any game can go […]

Greed Monger Officially Dead…Again

Greed Monger has once again been cancelled, leaving everyone who pledged the over ninety grand out of luck, again. The MMO was Kickstarted to the tune of ninety grand, only to face development issues and eventual cancellation under Jason Appleton and Electric Crow Games. Appleton handed over the title to ex-employee Jason Proctor who has, […]

Divergence Online Slips Back Into Obscurity

Divergence Online is an on-again, off-again MMO looking to replace the defunct MMO Star Wars Galaxies. But while Star Wars Galaxies still has thousands of people playing it, albeit on private servers, the first couple of months in early access seem to have left Divergence Online in the dust. This weekend brought in a peak […]

[Column] As Far As Greedmonger Goes, No.

Greed Monger is back! Yes, that Greed Monger. The one that was funded on a dream and a promise, by developers that had neither the funding nor experience in order to create said vision, only to crash and go under to the tune of $100 million in backer funds. The one by Jason Appleton who threatened […]

Divergence Online Ultimatum: No More Free Keys

Divergence Online is an upcoming hardcore sandbox MMO by developer Stained Glass Llama, dubbed a spiritual successor to pre-CU Galaxies and set to hit Steam as soon as Valve hits the launch button. SGL hopes to bring Divergence back to the glory days of sandbox games, one that predates Youtubers and streamers using their alleged […]

Community: Another Indie Dev Meltdown

(Editor’s note: minor language) When it comes to indie development, I consider myself to be a big fan of the genre. After all, gaming would look monumentally different if the small, poorly funded developers of the early days, and even those of the modern days, didn’t throw caution into the wind and give ideas a […]

Less Massive: Afterfall Insanity Is Free, And Still Costs Too Much

If you follow MMO Fallout on Twitter, or even if you don’t and simply catch my tweets on the sidebar of this website, you might have followed a link yesterday to redeem a free copy of Afterfall Insanity. Well, after putting about six hours into the game, I can honestly say that I got out of […]

Embers Of Caerus And Volunteer Projects

I love our indie friends, in fact I went as far as to devote space here at MMO Fallout to promoting the City of Titans Kickstarter effort not to mention multiple others. And even though I added the widget to the side-bar, I never went as far as directly telling people to pledge their money. […]

City of Steam Is A Chilling Lesson For Indies

City of Steam is a heavy contender for the most disappointing MMO of 2013, and even if the upcoming relaunch and branding as Arkadia goes well, the story of the folks at Mechanist Games will no doubt find its way into the nightmares of indie gamers everywhere. Much like how we use viruses and bacteria […]

I Don’t Think Divergence Is A Serious Game

Divergence Online is the next up and coming hardcore indie sandbox, and you can go ahead and stop reading there if you are as tired of that sentence as I am. Maybe it is the four years of writing MMO Fallout that has made me jaded, but when I hear about an indie hardcore sandbox […]
