GAME SPOTLIGHT: Edengrad


Edengrad is a survival MMORPG based on the foundation of post-apo alternative culture and taking cues from such genre classics as Fallout and Mad Max. The game uses sandbox gameplay mechanics, letting the players take their own paths, rather than predefining a goal that needs to be accomplished. The main Focus of Edengrad is survival, construction of the new world, and player-driven development of settlements into cities.

You’ll start with collecting firewood, building primitive shelter, hunting for food, and trying to keep yourself hydrated in the unforgiving wasteland. The next chapter of your virtual life will start once you find some travel mates and decide to formalize your relationship by forming a faction.

Forming a „micro-society” benefits all of its members in ways inaccesible to lone wolfs. Among other things, there’s the ability to start your own settlement – a unique feature of Edengrad. It will serve as your base of operations, a trade center, or a strategically placed stronghold. Upkeeping and developing your settlement into a thriving (in a post-apo sense of the word) city, a gem of the wasteland can be your goal in the game. Or not. It’s up to you. All bets are off, school’s out forever, who’s to tell YOU what to do with your (statistically short) life on the surface?

Key Features:

• Most items from simple tools, to whole towns are crafted by the players.
