Realm Explorer Looks Intriguing, But Hmm


John passed me the link to forthcoming Realm Explorer earlier today (through a special hole in the wall) and I studied it. I too, wasn't convinced. Like Mr Walker, I wasn't certain that this one had the right stuff. The idea was interesting - no doubt interesting enough for its own RPS post - and Realm Explorer looks like the kind of thing a nerd, introspective man like can get behind: sandbox, procedurally generated worlds, with RPG-like structure, multiplayer, mining, exploration, and all that good stuff. But there's something about the mandatory Kickstarter pitch that underwhelms me. Sorry guys, but this unchallenging pastoral mix of Wurm, Minecraft, and old-fashioned RPG fantasy doesn't quite get me on the hook. This could be one of the next wave of builder worlds, but something tells me it won't be the next breakout success. Ultimately, though, you will decide, InternetBrain. It is in your hands.
