Salem the Game - A sandbox like never before
I just want to do a shout out to my favorite game http://www.salemthegame.com/. A sandbox that’s soon to move from open beta to full on release with the opening of a special short lived server where you can earn loot for the main server!
Ahh but what is Salem? Plain and simple it’s the sandiest sand box MMO I know of. You are a colonist in the new world. You being with no survival skills, a tshirt, and well… not much else. It’s full loot, pvp, full destruction, fully changeable environment, super in depth crafting, farming, mining, trolling, betraying, scamming, thieving, perma death, none sense you can imagine.
The combat is skill/timing based, while you can power up your toon with gear (fully customizable gear) and increasing your biles (blood, black bile, yellow bile, and phlegm), I’ve seen plenty of strong groups get wrecked/murdered by people who actually know how to fight.
The hunting is the same way, the animals/monsters of the new world will not simply sit still as you whack away at them, they will jump around, dodging the best they can and if you’re not to fight like that even a bunny can wreck a new toon. Most animals will just knock you out, you’ll wake up in your town with a headache, empty inventory, and move on with your life. Some of the monsters of the Darkness are not so forgiving how ever, and while other players can let you live after besting you in combat, don’t count on it. Also if you commit crime be warned that those skilled in tracking will come for you…
Anyway it’s being released soon and I’m super excited and hope to see you there! Oh and here’s a recent video of two strong teams fighting (and one seeing their toons get murdered) The fight it rather drawn out because these are some of the strongest on the server… or some of them were rather.
Anyway hope to see some of you there on release!
