The Future of MMORPGs - As Written by the Past

May 14th - via: onrpg.com
It's no secret that this is a time of great tumult for the MMORPG genre. With the imminent release of Wildstar Online, many are saying that the last of the great 'theme park' MMORPGs is going to hit the ground, and everything after this will be new territory. We're moving away from the hand-holding, quest-saturated, WoW-esque misadventures of 2005-2014, and into a land far more concerned with sandboxes and the encouragement of player freedom and creativity. Publishers everywhere are wising up to the fact that human beings with hopes, dreams, and brains are the ones actually playing their games, and have decided to fund their projects accordingly. (Read More)

CasinoRPG – Previewed

April 15th - via: cliqist.com

The only issue with this is the expense almost certainly incurred by a visit. The odds are always stacked against you. CasinoRPG takes something we’re all familiar with and attempts to compartmentalize it into a browser-based game. I sat down with the game, intending to get a feel for it, and ended up glued to it for three hours. Here’s what occurred during that time. (Read More)

CasinoRPG Release Date Announced

April 4th - via: cliqist.com
As hard as it may be to believe, not all games on Kickstarter and IndieGoGo are platformers, roguelikes, dating sims, or Oculus Rift enabled. Some of the games are a bit more straightforward, like CasinoRPG from GoldFire Studios. Funded on Kickstarter in early 2013 for just over $20,000 CasinoRPG is exactly what it sounds like, an RPG where the player runs a casino. (Read More)

CasinoRPG Preview

January 8th - via: gamezebo.com
Despite the fact that they keep coming like the hordes of walkers in The Walking Dead, casino games for browsers and mobile devices feel like they may reach a crossroads soon. You can dress up slots, blackjack, and poker with fancy graphics and add in social features and achievements, but ultimately there are only so many ways to show off the same games, and we've seen them all. “Au contraire,” says CasinoRPG... or it would, if an upcoming game could speak French. (Read More)
