    Free To Play Crafting Focused MMORPG, Greed Monger, In Development

    On day one of official launch, players will embark on a new land as they are randomly distributed amongst a variety of various landscapes, each with their own prospects for housing, wild life and aggressive creatures. Nothing else will exist, until the player creates it. Each player will be armed only with a hammer and some form of bodily cover as they venture into the unknown in efforts to stake their claim on a new land with endless opportunities for wealth, fame and power.

    Greed Monger will be host to a variety of features focused on recapturing the essence of community found in the early MMORPG games such as Ultima Online. Some of these features include the following:

    • Non Instanced Player Owned 3D Housing (Land Parcels Purchased in US Currency)

    Just wanted to give a quick update... Last Sunday we did a Public Stress test and had alot of fun. We didn't get our desired number of People in the test because we only gave a couple hours notice that we were doing the test. We left the Servers online most all week and there was hardly a time that there was no one on. We really appreciate the support and feedback the community is giving us. We are going to be doing 1 last Public Stress test today (Sunday March 23rd 2014) starting at 7pm EST before shutting down our Servers and preparing to launch our Private Alpha Phase. Today's test will be a test to see how well our Server handles our new Voxel Engine under load. Those who take part in the test will be able stick claim to land, Build on the land, Gather Resources, do some basic Crafting, and do some basic Combat. Special Effects for Combat and Resource Gathering will be added through out Alpha so Combat isn't visually appealing at the moment but it works.

    It's been a while so I thought I'd post another update.

    Here is a Video showing the current state of GM. We have made a ton of changes. We have moved away from the Atavism MMO Framework for a number of reasons as well as the AtVoxel Terrain engine. We are back using uLink and have gone with a Zoned Game so we can get things launched quicker and then hopefully when we have the time and money to put into creating our own Seamless solution we will do so.
