At Christmas, we should spare a thought for those who are more unfortunate than ourselves. Like John. And the live team on Tabula Rasa whose work is winding down as the game for its final closure on February 28th. But until then, the game's actually totally free to play for everyone. Instructions are on the site proper, allowing you to either play from an old account or start a whole new one. Below the cut you'll find the most recently posted uservideo on gametrailers, which appears to be a repost of a post-release instance. It's cute enough but the sad thing is realzob's usertext on the video: "Tabula Rasa must survive". Poor old Realzob.
It'll be interesting to see if anyone uses this for actual play. I suspect some people will want to go and have a look around, but it's still two months of MMO fun. I suspect people won't though, as it's pointless - there's no future to that character. Which does make you wonder about the nature of MMOs, y'know?
