Otherland – The Game!

February 1, 2010 at 6:41 pm (computers, internet) (, , , )

Largely old news to most followers of such things, but news to me.  I am now on the last of 4 books in Tad Williams’ Otherland series, set in a not too distant future, where people can plug themselves (neurally) into the 3D Internet of the future.

These books are an excuse for Tad Williams to spin a complex plot involving digital recreations of Ancient Troy, World War 2, the Wizard of Oz, Ancient Egypt and many more scenes from past and future, alongside a range of fantasy worlds from his imagination.

If you are interested in knowing more, then wikipedia will help, as will the author’s own website about the books.

Anyway, there has been an online MMO game in development for a while, and they are starting to slowly release details of it.  Starting with some pictures, you can find out more at www.otherland-game.com.

There is certainly no shortage of material for a game … will be interesting to see how it all turns out.
