The last time I launched a Virtual World (MMO) BETA was 12 years, 3 months and 13 days ago. For those curious Club Penguin's BETA launched August 22, 2005. This has been a long journey for me. I have forgotten how much I love creating safe spaces for your imagination. Each world I create is a digital toy box, full of interesting characters and exciting games. This world is yours, enjoy! Thanks for playing
For the past couple months I have been working a number of new virtual worlds or MMO games. Each world will include a character to customize, items to collect, events to attend, a world to explore and games to play. One of the worlds is Epic Snails. I have been teasing the idea of snail tanks for years and finally decided to make it happen.
Epic Snails is pretty simple. Your a snail, and you can climb and move anywhere. The world is divided into two parts. The secret base (or headquarters) and the battle field. In the base you will explore, buy items and meet new friends. In the battle field you will join a team to earn coins and experience points.
A good games take time. Epic Snails started as a number of doodles, then became Box of Snails. Box of Snails allowed me to develop a 3D character and experiment with the "look" or style of the world. Last year, I created another experiment called Experimental Coffee. My goal was to test the multiuser server and backend services. Then I waited for a team.
I decided to partner with the team that created Battle Bears the award winning mobile shooter game. I have really enjoyed getting to know the SkyVu team and I am excited to show you their work. We still have a lot to do, but we are confident that we can launch the BETA this NOVEMBER 2017.
Next week we are officially announcing the game. Thanks for following and continue to provide feedback on any of my games.
