  • Early Access Impressions - It's Rough Right Now, But There's Hope

    Dark & Light has finally arrived on Steam Early Access. It's one of those games a lot of people have really been looking forward to playing. While we truly believe that there is a good, if not great, game inside the current version, it just feels like Dark & Light should have stayed in development for a longer period of time before releasing into Early Access.

  • Development Update - HUD & UI Polish

    Snail games is offering a sneak peek at a few of the improvements that the Snail development team has made to Dark and Light, including new creatures and a brand new HUD/UI. Players interested in exploring and uncovering Dark and Light’s world, spoiler-free, may want to avoid the article.

  • Hurts so Good

    MMOs have spent the last decade heading down the ever-more-accessible theme park road, hoping perhaps, to “solve” the intimidatingly competitive aspects of old school games in the genre. Undoubtedly, that's been the developer's path to a healthy bottom line. Still, many a venerable RPG-er (and plenty of MMO newbies) hanker for a more dangerous role-play experience, and Snail Games' upcoming survival MMO Dark and Light plans to give it to them.

  • The Top 20 MMO News Stories of 2016

    2016 is in the bag folks, and after 52 weeks of MMO news, you’ll be surprised (or maybe) not to see what the most viewed stories on MMORPG.com were over the course of the year. Some of you will probably see why Black Desert gets a lot of reporting too, both here and across the web. Read on for our top 20 stories of 2016!

  • The Most Wanted MMOs of 2017

    2016 was a rough year. The long-standing MMOs we’ve come to love carried along quite well, but for new titles the selection was pretty limited. And so, as we’re fond to do at year’s end, we look forward to 2017 and the titles we expect to launch (even if in early access, which we pretty much consider launched but ‘half-baked’). Here’s to the next twelve months and the many hours of gaming goodness we hope it brings.

  • Exclusive Developer Diary - Featured Creatures Part 2

    In the previous Dark and Light creatures spotlight, the team provided a close look at the varied creatures that players will encounter while exploring the world. However, the creatures are more than just set dressing or leveling fodder. Many of the creatures contain varying amounts of elemental magic that fuels Dark and Light’s world, which can be extracted by skilled players but also from raw materials.

  • Mythical Animals & Creatures

    Imagine yourself as a lone explorer in a limitless world of elemental magic that's teeming with mythical creatures. In Dark and Light, the upcoming multiplayer survival title from Snail Games, players will encounter a wide variety of creatures - both magical and magnificent. In previous overviews, players have seen a few glimpses of the creatures that inhabit the game's world, but today Snail Games provides a deeper look into the menagerie of fantastical beasts.

  • Five Things We Want from Snail’s Dark & Light

    Dark and Light, once thought dead and buried is nearing ever closer to its eventual relaunch. It’s not the game it was 12 years ago, except in name only. Still, even with a few interviews, we don’t have much in the way of gameplay video or real details from the developer itself to go on. Ergo, today we’re offering up five things we want from Dark and Light. These are just five of our many hopes, so feel free to weigh in with your own.

  • Camps, Cities and NPCs in Dark and Light

    Cities are core elements of Dark and Light. Compared to traditional sandbox survival games, where the player's character is simply dropped into the world, naked and alone, Dark and Light starts the player off in one of three distinct cities. This lends to a more "civilized" start for the player, and introduces them to the world in a friendlier way.

  • It’s Coming Back This Fall

    Dark and Light, as many of our loyal readers may remember was an insanely ambitious MMORPG that launched in 2006, flopped, and was shut down in 2008. There was a load of controversy surrounding the title back then, ultimately leading to the original developer (NPCube) and publisher (Farlan Entertainment) closing quietly after lawsuits filed by VWorld LLC.
