Vanilla Gate was a 3D fantasy MMORPG from Inixsoft with cute, anime-inspired graphics. The story involved players landing on the planet Vanilla by accident and trying to find a portal back home. The game offered the traditional quests, XP, and party system, but its combat was skill-based with some shooter mechanics. There was also an "educational mode" with word minigames and Chinese characters that could be used as attacks, and a player-created quiz option. Vanilla Gate had six PvP modes, including Capture the Flag and King of the Hill. The game was free to play with an optional item shop, and was shut down in November of 2009.
