It is not a FB game though we, like everyone else, have a facebook page.  The game is launched directly from your browser which is only going to become more common.  A lot of the titles you are probably more interested in will use this approach in the near future.

The "World of" name is meant to be funny...but at the same time does a great job of describing what we do.  Let's not pretend that another "World of" title was the first to use it.  "Design your own horse" would probably have been a better wording for our horse character creation.

The huge open world, 1000+ quests, and weekly content updates make this more of an MMO than a lot of the games that make the same claim.  This game is not "junk" but is a full featured MMO.  Clearly it was not made for you.  You don't really need me to tell you that you are not the target demographic for this game.

Give us your honest opinion AFTER trying it.  Your post made me want to sit on the rocket to Mars with you for completely different reasons.

you say its not a FB game yet your very own discription is as this. "Star Stable is a Facebook MMORPG from World of Horsecraft AB based on riding horses through the huge 3D world of Jorvik. " <- it clearly says facebook mmorpg O-o which is what leads my self and anyone checking newly listed mmos to see it as a facebook browser game.

LOL- Funniest shit I have ever seen here.

Then the dude coming here defending "World of horses" is even funnier. =P

Please continue what may end up being a thread of epicness for all the ages.

Seriously I am still laughing like 20 mins after stumbling across this thread.

The Ops confusion over this is hilarious (and justified) then the dude coming here all pissed off and saying it isnt a FB game , then BAM someone looks at the site and its actually described as such...

But hey... I guess it isnt a WOW clone so that makes it more creative than 97% of everything else...I think.

EDIT: I gotta say, looking at the video I am floored at the graphics you guys are getting out of a browser game. This is the second browser game I have seen (not played, but saw video) which has blown my mind in terms of graphics.

Still funny as hell though...

rofl, actually browsers have advanced alot. both with flash/unity and java engs.  though browsers still suffer typical issues of game chocking (found that trying out wizard 101 and mysical lands with my gf lol)  

but to be fair. i havent tried this game so im kinda being unfair in judging it... though it really doesnt fit with my game style lol if you youtube videos of it (i think they are in russian @-@) you can see the game play of it. 

seems like a game you would let a 10yr girl play IMO. not something a males would play though lol

 

im still wondering how you design your own horse.. i play too many customizing games so i automatically picture a garage with a horse on a hoist and robotic arms taking the legs off and fitting on new ones... BUT im sure they dont mean it that way....sadly..

The game description is written by MMORPG.  Thank you for pointing out that little mistake.

Not pissed off.  Just trying for a little clarity.  Our site doesn't say it is a Facebook game...MMORPG's description, written by them does.  Soon most MMO's will be lauchable from browsers and likely from their facebook pages...that won't make them facebook games.  Then again we'll have to see what kind of a mess Windows 8 makes with browser plug-ins as we know them today.  Either way,  I don't really want the product we made being compared to regular facebook titles...I'm not interested in working on that kind of game.

Yes, it is a bit odd to have the game listed here when it isn't really the target demographic....but this site is full of real gamers, that have girlfriends and daughters.  When I first saw this game I was amazed enough to swtich jobs to work on it.  This game really is something truly new and different yet there is no doubt it is a true MMO in every sense of the word.  Trying to develop a fun MMORPG without ANY combat of any kind makes regular MMO development seem easy.  When you can rely on the old "go here, kill that" mechanics things become a lot more challenging for designers.

This is definitely  the kind of game that can be played by a 10 year old girl...but it is great fun for anyone.  A bit like a pixar flick, fine for young people but with a lot of fun for older players too.

I'm not sure what is funnier, that this game is listed here, or that the OP has apparenly lost his cookies because of said game.

 

 

Fun times at the old .com tonight!

I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

The "seriously wtf" part is that this game looks like it's twice the virtual world experience of most multi-million dollar AAA MMOs. It probably has twice the (positive) player interaction, as well.

@Means you left AO to work on World of Horsecraft?   >.<   For what it is, it looks nice, but as you've indicated to others probably not my cup of tea.   Best of luck though.  No ill will at all.

OT: Although the thread is funny due to subject matter in and of itself I wonder if anyone else also finds it funny that no one seems to recognize Means.  Although his sig no longer has AO included.

I find the unnecessary bashing by the OP and others in this thread to be incredibly grating. Yes, the game probably isn't for you. However, the neat thing about demographics is that there are so many of them, and there's certainly one for a game of this type. Variety is a good thing, especially in a genre like MMORPG where there's a massive overabundance of games targeting certain niches (medieval/high fantasty, I'm looking at you).

 

If you don't like a game, that's perfectly fine. But don't make a thread solely to bash it unless you have more substantive reasons.

I loved working on AO.  It was a fantastic amazing experience...but it was time to do something truly different.  This game is about as different as it can get.  Working on something close to AO would have been annoying.  The titles do have something in common though..both are niche products and both are the absolute best in their niche.  There are 30M monthly searches for "games for girls"....so this is also a interesting business opportunity.  The change from producer to CEO has also been interesting...learning lots of new things...been very exciting :)
