A Finnish development team, Tribe Studios, today announced
the immediate launch of the closed beta for their dramagame, Velvet
Sundown. Velvet Sundown sees players
aboard a luxury yacht on a high seas adventure.
At launch, 11 characters are available to play, each with their own
carefully crafted personality and background story. Upon launch Velvet Sundown will be
accompanied by ground-breaking, text-to-speech technology, which is likely never
before seen in the free MMO genre. OK,
so what is a dramagame? I’m imagining a
version of The Bachelor, where all the ladies are stuck on a boat and have to
fight over one man, but then the Captain is there swabbing the decks, if you
know what I mean. I’m winking.
A Black Desert fan site today posted an interview with the
developers Pearl Abyss, shedding some light on the progress of the russian
localization for their highly anticipated MMORPG. The information in the article suggest they
expect a publisher to be chosen at a later date, and that they expect a
localized version will be released in Russia before both the EU and US. So .. wait, i’m not sure what the point of
this article is. I guess i’ll be moving
We’ve talked extensively about SOE in the past week or
so. From the shutting down of four
titles, to EverQuest Next Landmark’s Alpha and the Star Wars Galaxies mention
in the AMA last week. Well, John Smedley
is adding a little fuel to the fire as he’s posted a twitter photo of the so
called spiritual successor to Star Wars Galaxies, and no, it has nothing to do
with Star Wars, or space or anything along those lines. The photo is of a church, I think, and other
than that, not much else was posted.
Could we be seeing a modern take on some of the features that made SWG
so popular at first? Maybe. But we will keep you updated on all the hot

Velvet Sundown is a brand new free to play dramagame from Tribe Studios. In the game, you are aboard a luxury yacht, where you will play through hundreds of different experiences, based on how you interact with others. The game is all about social reactions between all the players.
The game is a little bit like the board game clue, in the way that you will have to interact with others to find out different things about them, and ultimately whether or not you want to pursue different avenues. Velvet Sundown is as much of a role-playing game that you can get. There is no combat, no raiding and no loot. But for those of you with a strong imagination, that can put yourself into the scenarios laid out for you, you will love this dramagame.
