Wurm - For Your Daily Grind

1 post in this topic

Okay, technical Wurm's been out for a while now (at least 3 years) but it's a game that doesn't get much publicity. The only reason I learned about it is because my friend told me about it. It's free to play, although there is a limit to how high you can raise your skills before you have to be premium. But even with that cap, there's a ton of time to be spent in the game. Now I'm not going to lie, it's a massive grind fest. So far in the game, I've made m own little shack, a small farm encircled in a stone walled fence, and an iron gate to lock it off. That doesn't sound like much, but all in all that took about 6-8 hours. It's a true open world sandbox game, where you can claim your own part of the world and build on it, but it takes a long time to get things done.


So, it's a different kind of fun that not everyone will enjoy. You have to work to get things done. You need to take steps to protect your things from other players. A wolf can easily kill a new player. It goes for realism over convenience of gameplay. But, once you finally do get something done, you feel great about it and appreciate it more. It's better to play with friends, as most MMOs are, but you can still find random people in the world and even join their settlements and villages. It's all about living your life as best you can, and that makes it fun.


Also, you can slap cows in combat. What's not to love?
