Each week, we scour the internet for all things indie MMO-related, so you don’t have to. This week, The Wagadu Chronicles is shutting down, Coreborn announces server wipes, and demons invade Fractured Online. Plenty of other stuff is also going on, so let’s quit wasting time and get started with this week’s Indie MMO Spotlight.


The BitCraft Hub has been temporarily disabled. A new and improved Hub will be in place for the next Alpha, which is slated for June 19th. Your current account will remain intact and will be available when the new Hub launches. And speaking of the next Alpha, check out the tweet below for a bit of a teaser.
