Face of Mankind: Fall of the Dominion

May 7th - via: lovesandboxes.com
Face of Mankind is a game that I have followed for years and never actually downloaded to try it out. It launched forever ago and was quickly shut down. Brought back to life for awhile and still floundered. But the game was recently bought by Nexeon and they have spent the past 2 years constantly updating and improving the game. I wish now that I had just taken the plunge and messed around even as a free player because they have gone to kickstarter for what is essentially a 3rd relaunch of the game. Hopefully I get a chance after the kickstarter campaign is over to test the game in its current form. I will make sure to get up an impression of the before and after on the blog. (Read More)
