Golemizer was a free-to-play, 2D browser-based MMO from Machine 22 set in a steampunk universe. Players took on the role of scientists who gathered resources and crafted many things in the world, such as weapons and golems. These golems served as players' pets and could be given orders to complete. The game's classless advancement system allowed skill points to accrue over time, even when players were offline. These points could then be spent on leveling various abilities.
Golemizer had a deep crafting system, and in addition to golems, the majority of items in the game were crafted, including player homes and cities. Players could also run their own shops, and most of the quests and dungeons were player-generated. As such, the game had a very hands-on community and received many updates. Golemizer was also playable via Facebook and was supported by an item shop for optional upgrades.
