A Tad Unusual? Otherland Enters Beta


Any Tad Williams fans in the audience? Ah, just that guy at the back. Oh well, this is for you, anyway: Otherland, the Tad Williams-directed MMO based on his sci-fi scribblings, is going to enter beta this weekend. It's closed for now, but you can sign up for a chance to get in on the main site. (Top left!)

Otherland is quite ambitious, with different "worlds" encompassing varied genre conventions in a single game: a fantasy Medieval England, a cyberpunk city, a tranquil Eastern mythology, and so on. You can see Tad and his friends talk about all this in their latest Making Of piece, conveniently embedded below. There's a gameplay trailer, too.
