Wander: "The Reality"
Posted: Friday August 1st, 2014 by

I found my way to the Wander website today. If you haven't heard of it, Wander is a non-combat, non-competitive, cooperative MMO focused on -in their words- narrative, exploration, and joy.

The concept is incredibly niche. I'm certain there is a market for it. But, I can only imagine that market is going to be terribly narrow. Maybe I'm wrong and one of the things I enjoy most in a MMO -exploring- can serve as the engine that drives an entire multi-player game. I'm not sure what will bring the players together and promote cooperation. It will have to be something incredible to side-step competitiveness though.

I'm also curious as to what tools will be in place to make sure that players interact in a very specific way. Because, you guys know as well as I do, gamers will always find ways to exploit game mechanics. I'd be shocked if the game goes a week without some kind of makeshift competitive element being introduced. If it's not something in game, it'll be outside of the game on the net somewhere. Screenshot documented proof that you made it to the top of this magical floating island before anyone else.
