The oldest MMORPG ever, Meridian 59, is making a comeback, and we got the scoop on the project at PAX South.
Meridian 59 is considered one of the "old guard" 3D MMOs that still exists on the market today. Rob Lashley took some time to find out more about the Open Meridian Project with input from several members of the team.
A new article about the astonishing, though diminished, longevity of 1996's Meridian 59 has cropped up in a most unusual place: New Yorker magazine. The article talks to several of the handful of players who continue to doggedly play the game, those who have grown to adulthood playing the original MMO.
GDC-Online has announced the inclusion of a new event that will feature Meridian 59's Lead Designer Damion Schubert giving insight into the groundbreaking MMOs development and much more.
Near Death Studios, has well, died. The company, which have been the developers of the now venerable MMORPG, Meridian 59, has shut down according to an announcement made on the blog of NDS' Brian "Psychochild" Green.
