So what the hell is this shit?
Perpetuum is a new science fiction MMORPG by indy developer Avatar Creations, in which you play as a robot and blow crap up.Backstory
Direct from the source:
In the not-too-distant future, a strange anomaly opens the gates of the universe for humans. With this new technology, energy, information and atomic size objects can be transported to anywhere in space.
The most intriguing of all new discoveries is an Earth-like planet, where humanity discovers a new source of energy, vital to its unbroken advancement. However, this planet is inhabited by a synthetic, robot-like life form. Their technology and resources are the goal of humanity's new conquest.
Players may take part in various areas of the project. They may fight on the front lines for new territories, develop the already established infrastructure, trade goods or services, or even set their own goals and set up their own corporations.Sum it up in One Line
It's EVE Online. With Mechs instead of Spaceships.
No literally. Everything about the game, from UI to the combat to even kinda sorta the storyline is clearly inspired by EVE. It even has the same Real-Time-EXP system.Wait, real time EXP?
Yes, just like EVE, you gain skillpoints over real life time, not via killing monsters and grinding. This counts if you're logged in or not, as well.PVP?
Open world. UO style.Free trial?
Yes, 15 days:http://www.perpetuum-online.com/Client_download
Due to the recent clusterfuck in EVE, a lot (a lot
) of EVE players have jumped ship to Perpetuum, which is described as "EVE Beta, only the devs actually listen to the players." Not sure if there's a Penny Arcade / Goonswarm presence yet -- we should fix that if not, eh?
Anyone giving this a try?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCXEKspMzUQ&feature=relatedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-eQmyCkPKw&feature=relatedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZ3Xkh91BNQ&feature=player_embedded
