The endless cycle of MMO tourism marches on. This time, we’re making a stop at Landmark. Between the game’s tortured history and the fact I’ve never been much for sandboxes or building games, my expectations for Landmark were pretty low, but I maintained a mild curiosity, the game is very inexpensive, and I found myself with a brief window where I had nothing else demanding much attention on the gaming front, so I decided to give it a shot.
But my expectations didn’t turn out to be entirely correct. Head on over to MMO Bro to learn about how Landmark Is Surprisingly Good.
Back to Landmark, I don’t think it’s a game that’s going to keep me engaged for a super long time, but I am going to try to keep my claim up and running for as long as I can. As it stands now I’d consider it largely done, though I’ll still be tweaking and polishing for a while, I expect.
If anyone would like to check it out, it’s listed as Maigraith’s Grove in the gallery, and if you want to take the long way, you can find it south of the spire in the Silver Shallows zone of the Serenity server. Look for the giant pine tree. Likes and feedback are welcome.
My general concept was to build my ideal fantasy retreat, full of beauty and mystery. Beware, though: Beauty can conceal darkness, and some mysteries have teeth.
I tried to fill it with as much detail, Easter eggs, and hidden areas as possible. Make sure to look around carefully.
