I just heard about this new MMO game on Attack of the Show based on the music of Michael Jackson.
Unfortunately it probably won’t be available until the end of next year but it will be an ongoing game and social network where players can build virtual Jackson worlds.
I signed up to receive updates on all the progress of the game by typing in my birthdate and giving my name and email address.
It’s said that this will be a free game and from the video they showed on Attack of the Show it looks very cool. It’s completely 3D and looks very similar to the other MMO games like World of Warcraft and EverQuest, except it’s Michael Jackson music video worlds and not a kingdom or village.
I’m almost positive that my computer won’t be able to handle it considering it can’t handle games like WoW, EQ, LoTRO and DDO but hopefully it won’t be as memory intensive. I’m sure it will be though. And just like those other games, people are going to take it too seriously and get into fights over loot lol. Maybe.
As far as being a social network, I think I’m good with Facebook and Twitter considering I don’t need to install anything (well, except for TweetDeck). I can’t imagine being stuck in a game just for conversation and not being able to check my email or blog because I’m too focused on “Planet Michael” but I still wouldn’t mind seeing how it looks.
