Mad World is a beautifully drawn browser based massively multiplayer RPG that sees you hacking and slashing your way through a post-apocalyptic world filled with Lovecraftian monsters and hideously deformed mutants.
We first featured Mad World last year during the Halloween special open Alpha and were very impressed with its fantastic art style and grim game world. It features a multiplayer-focused dungeon crawling experience where the more players there are, the more fun it gets. You’ll be able to team up for giant boss raids, take part in field raids or test out your PvP skills in the game’s Battle Arena Mode.
There’s plenty of loot to collect and it features a classless weapon-based combat system, so you’re free to experiment with different play-styles rather than being stuck in one role forever. Interestingly, rather than the generic dialogue you normally get in MMORPG’s. Mad World promises that every NPC that you meet will have an emotional and sometimes shocking narrative that you’ll unravel through quests.
Browser based MMORPGs are generally quite bland and generic affairs, but Mad World really looks set to break that mould. The artwork is superb, that monster design is wonderfully grotesque and the world that you’re exploring is genuinely fascinating. Sign up for the Beta to test your sanity in this beautiful nightmare.
