Trinketz is a game that has been receiving some attention of late, a game that is aimed squarely at the early teen crowd. See how it fares in the face of other MMOs catering to the same market. Let us know what you think in the comments.
While playing the game, I felt like it was created for the five or six-year-olds due to the art choices and the overall style. All of the Trinketz strongly reminded me of the items in the Beast's castle in Disney's Beauty and the Beast or the vehicles in the Cars and Planes movies from Pixar, moving around in their fixed positions and having eyes that looked around. After awhile, it was kind of creepy holding shovels and wrenches with eyes on them, but I don't imagine a five or six-year-old would care too much. The landscapes were bright, and the items were well-designed in a cartoony sort of way and they all had names like this was Ikea or something.
