I was browsing through the Internet when I came across this interesting looking game. Since I have not heard of it before, I thought I will share it with you guys. And finally, an indie MMO which is not a clone (I hope) of popular games and not forcing people to pay a monthly fee for inferior quality stuff. Here are the details from the game’s official website.
