Metaplace in Open Beta

Post by TheHidden01 on Fri May 15, 2009 7:07 pm

Last night at the in-game party in Metaplace Central, company-head and project-lead Raph Koster announced that the virtual world / game development platform, Metaplace, will be entering into Open Beta today as part of their “soft launch”. Metaplace, for those of you who are unaware, is a virtual world that allows users to create their own worlds within it. Users can create anything from social spaces, to small puzzle games, to more complex games, and even full-scale MMOs. While the latter most hasn’t been done just yet, there are projects set up to actually complete a game of that scale.

Metaplace runs in a browser. Just about any browser will do, as long as it runs Flash. It is also cross-platform compatible, although there are some problems with 64bit Linux and Flash 10 – really more the fault of Adobe than Metaplace, as near as I can tell. Currently, everything does run in a 2D environment, with the ability to display worlds in isometric, side-scrolling, or top-down view points. The platform is powerful enough that if you wanted to, you could theoretically create your own 3D engine through it, and even your own client software.

"Let your character be your weapon, your fellow guild members be your armour, your blood thirst be your helmet, and use your boots to make a stand. After every battle allow your shield to be your faith in one another, and return from battle either carrying it or resting upon it."
