German MMORPG In Development
12:30 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
For those of you who speak German, this will be excellent news: a post on Usenet alerted us to the development of Alchera, a German massively-multiplayer role playing game comparable to Delta Tao's Clan Lord. Featuring hand-illustrated 2D graphics and a German-language environment, this game is currently Mac OS only, but will also arrive on the Windows and Linux platforms in the future.
Predictably, the game's web site is also in German, but a run through the Babelfish translator provided by AltaVista produced these details from the FAQ:
Why I should play Alchera?We contacted the creators of this title, and received word that there are no plans for an English-language version of this game. This game is currently in beta testing, and a new version of the client is available to download for beta testers.
Alchera is generally based on the play idea and the engine of clan lord . The advantages of Alchera are: - completely translated into German - German-speaking fellow players - German-language GameMaster - server is located in Germany - simple payment of the fees (no credit card necessarily)
