OP  2/18/12 7:01:06 AM#1

The game is free till the 29th of february because its in open beta, after that it costs 15 euro's for 3 months ! This game is amazing and refreshing ! I recommend this to every sandbox fan. Had a burn out with mmorpg's found out about this game recently and having a blast !!! crafting system is amazing you even have to craft your own money, small details like you can sit on chairs. Its free till the 29th so why not try it ? its free for now! I am buying a 1 year subscribsion for this one !

 

Update (game information) :

 

This game has so many things but I will try to name it. There are 4 Nations, you join one and get a pasport for this nation you can be an ass and kill your own nation members but! it will give u negative points and when you get to many negative points you will be trown in prison and you become an outcast ! but there are more ways to get negative standing, for example you are cutting trees down that someone just planted you get the wood for something that someones els planted which gives you netative point which is not a problem if you just plant new trees ! There is a political part of the game people can vote on there ruler ! which is played by a real player and he can make laws and change the weather by paying certain resources also I think he/she can make war with other nations to control more land for your nation !. There are a total of 17 Gathering/crafting skills, some nations have better fish like other have better trees and ores. There are many emotions you can gather by gaining achievements! the game is turn based kinda like final fantasy tactics. There is some kind of housing system where you can place your house in a city when you are offline and people can enter it to buy your stuff and you can craft furniture for it. Also money is made by the players them self ! You need to mine iron and other materials to make coints. There are not many NPC's only the ones that explain you the basics and the ones that teach you the skills beside that everything is player controlled. There are no shops ! I don't know but if you ask me this is everything most sandbox fans ever asked for so give it a try now its still free besisde that the subscribsion is 15 euros/dollars for 3 months ! thats 5 a month ! I am totaly hooked already I pre ordered 1 year of subscribsion already and can't wait for release !

Doesn't the game reset on the 29th when it actually launches?

I think so yes, but when it resets you have to pay 5 euro's a month I think. So now you can try it for free.

Some of the features are great, but I really don't care for the graphics style (so not my bag/same reason I never touched wow)... if you can make a convincing case, I'll reconsider a bit more!

I was interested in this game until I found out it has open pvp. What is it with sandbox games thinking they have to put in open pvp. I will pass no thanks.

Now...if they redo the game in a graphical style that isn't aimed at 8 year olds, and make it a true 3d and not a top-down 2d iso view, I would consider it.

Tried quite hard to get into it, just couldn't do it. Same thing happenned with Dofus, believe the engine really detracts from my experience.

 I agree with the OP. A friend got me into the game, at first I was VERY turned off by the graphics.  But I am a huge fan of the style of tactics games like this, so I started playing. I was literally shocked at the level of sandbox this game offers.  I am not very high level but I dont think there is ANY way to buy/sell to npcs. Every single thing ni the game is crafted (besides some starter crafting tools and other newbie gear).  Literally zone wide coop farming and harvesting.  Each zone has a set amount of the available resources, and people can only harvest so much, until everyone must replenish the resource.  And what is great is you get exp and "reputation" type points for your nation for keeping a zone in a  healthy balance. 

 

 Don't get me wrong Im not saying this is some ground breaking , epic, revolutionary game, but if you can get past the graphics ( in fact i have come to quite enjoy them) there is a pretty incredible game in Wakfu.  There is little direction in the way of quests and things after the turotial areas..  I mean there are achievments and goals to pursue but its VERY sandbox. It took me quite some time to figure it all out and decide what I was going to do with my time.  

 

 Im not sure if there is a skill cap, but I dont think so, or its very flexible.  I can't wait until beta is over and I can really play hardcore to see the high level stuff.

 

  I would feel safe suggesting this to any MMORPG fan, especially sandbox fans.  Check it out you will either go nuts over it like me n a couple friends have or you will hate it. Literally hate it and be really bored.

iso can "no problemo" cool; keep things simple and work on g8 systems/features (the real game)... just the style uck! : (

Also, sandbox: open pvp - free roaming, free killing but with logical counter weights... it should be the best implementation -> player choice/expression/creativity! imho.

Glitch looks kiddy too but its not too childish of a game.  Have you heard the phrase "dont just a book by its cover"?

  I'm not sure how a games art style makes it "childish" or not.. I never once felt I was playing a game created for children..  I mean its too bad really.. I bet if you played it you would still say "YESSSS"

I really wanted to love it but the asian-standard level threadmill basically killed it for me.

It's like 2 completely different and antagonistic games in one. Level grind with tiered zones and all that crap and a freeform eco-system... They don't mesh well at all. Level 5 tree and level 20 tree... Jeez. If they ditched the leveling crap I'd love it, but this is just ridiculous.

It's a pity really. The graphics are really beautiful (not really anime... more french comic strip-like) and the world and the atmosphere is top-notch. The ecology and crafting is wonderful... and then you have level 10 bread and level 30 bread. Wtf? It's a crafiting grinder, sadly. I thought they'd be more imaginative in the core mechanic part of the design.. A real pity.

Simply based on the name I cannot even bring myself to load up the web page.

Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)
