MMORPG.com Features A Tale in the Desert
9:59 AM | Franklin Pride | Comment on this story

The "perfect society builder" MMORPG A Tale in the Desert
has been featured on mmorpg.com. The feature covers the basic game mechanics, the powers given to players through the petition system, and the basic ideas behind the game. There are many extremes in the game's design. For example:

Although the game does not feature combat, it does have permanent death in an extreme manner. When you subscribe to ATITD2, you are not granted an account with a number of characters. You are granted a character. If your character is killed, exiled, or otherwise destroyed your account is literally de-activated. Nothing prevents you from signing up again, but your person is dead. At this point, there are only two means to die. Players can overdose on drugs discovered by players and distributed around Egypt apparently this happened in the first telling or they can be exiled from Egypt.
To view the complete feature, head on over to the links section.
