The title of this post says “massively-multiplayer zero-player game” and you may think that I’m making a mistake here due to English being my second language, but i am not. How could a game be a multiplayer and zero-player at the same time?! Turns out, it’s really possible! A weird genre indeed, but it does exist even while it’s pretty much safe to say you have never heard of it.

Second, there are new mounts released, including wolves, sabertooths, hyenas and panthers. Also, new animal in-game models have been introduced: lion, panther and smilodon. Regnum Online is a free to play Realm-vs.-Realm (and actually the best one out there in the field) fantasy MMORPG by NGD Studios, released back in 2007 and currently slowly undergoing graphical and technical revamp. I myself think very good of this game and wrote in a Regnum Online review that is a “hidden pearl” actually, you can check it out. Regnum Online client for Mac OS X v10.5 (and up) can be found on the game’s official download page. (more…)
