Just found this today, quite a fun dungeon crawler with no install and free registration:

It looks totally kickass! Unfortunately, it also looks like the kind of game that would instantaneously crash my laptop, and therefore can't really try it.

If I get a chance to play, I will. Otherwise, y'all have fun.

P.S...

Wow, that actually looks kind of cool. I'll definitely have to check up on this in a month or two.

EDIT: Woot, signed up for the newsletter figuring it would remind me when the game was open beta. Went back to school, checked my email when I was done and I have been selected for the preview event. :csi:

Opening in a few days. Hope it rocks, because it's kept 3PS down for most of a month!
It's a secret to everybody.

Well, the game is on for real now. A bit meh for deleting my beta-knight, but what to do. Give it a try, I say.

I'm enjoying. Not many players for opening day! (or is it alone in the start?)

Yeah, until you get to the camp or haven, you won't encounter many, but there's usually a fair amount of people in town.

My character is Medve, feel free to add on friendlist, anyone.

I played for a bit yesterday. To the first camp and through the dungeon there.

I was using the WASD keys to move so that I could shoot while moving backwards. The standard setup is ok if using a sword.

Now that I set up an account on the nice, fast family desktop, I can actually give this a go without too much worry!

Name is, unsurprisingly: Olothontor.

EDIT: Tried a bit, it's great fun. Controls are easy (I do like Tzan's WASD style over the mouse movement, though). The art style is great.

anyone who uses mouse movement should be burned at the stake.

Agreed.

So, about this guild... I think we totally should do that, actually. It would be quite fun (certainly something to do while we all wait for the damned Minecraft server to get out of its Mysql hell), and working as a team for expeditions into the Clockworks we all get the minerals for that run. Alchemy, gooo!
