Oberin: New Mac MORPG
10:54 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

Oberin is a new Mac-only online role playing game currently in development. Similar to Verant Interactive's Everquest, the game features a constant evolving world that changes throughout the development of the game. While the game does not contain a primary plot or quest, you will discover many possible goals from encounters with the characters you will meet. Here are the details:

Oberin is an online fantasy role-playing game, available exclusively for Macintosh. Oberin takes place in a persistent, ever evolving world -- your character may come and go, but the world continuously runs.

There is no ultimate goal when playing Oberin. It's an online fantasy world where the fun comes from interacting with other real players. You can join a group of fellow players to hunt for dragons, spend a quiet day fishing, meet a friend at the pub for a game of chess, or spend some time refining your chosen skills.

Oberin is meant to be an open community project. The actual programming is being done by the Oberin development team, but the ultimate direction of the game will be determined by the real people who choose to be Oberin citizens.

This game will be open to public beta test; currently there is no set date for completion. Not intended as a commercial release, the only charge for this game will be a monthly charge to help maintain the servers and bandwidth. Visit the web site for more information.
