A fully realized Starcraft MMO is in the works, but it needs to be Kickstarted first

If you're a dedicated World of Warcraft player, you may have already spent a good deal of time wondering when developer Blizzard would give its StarCraft property the MMO treatment as well. StarCraft Universe is that MMO, but it's not being made by Blizzard; a group called Upheaval Arts is...

Galaxy on Fire Alliances takes Fishlabs' setting in a new direction

A little while back, Fishlabs announced that they were working on a new title in the Galaxy on Fire space exploration series of games, and that it would take a bit of a new direction, as a strategy MMO rather than as an action title. Last week at GDC, I got to sit down with the company and see...

FishLabs working on Galaxy on Fire strategy MMO

If you've never downloaded Galaxy on Fire 2 for iOS (especially considering that it went free a little while ago), I'm comfortable with calling you nuts at this point. The game, which is a free flying space trading/combat title, is just plain terrific, with some of the best-looking graphics on...

Some people might have chuckled at the resemblance of Gameloft's Order and Chaos Online to the popular World of Warcraft. It's actually a near clone of the very popular Blizzard Entertainment title, squeezed down into the iPhone. But it turns out Gameloft will be the one who laughs last. The...

Pocket Legends offers paid content for free

Pocket Legends, I maintain, is one of iOS' best technical achievements. It's a full-featured MMO, in the style of the legendary World of Warcraft, and it's available to play for free on Apple's App Store. It's huge among a certain audience (and, in fact, I've been told that audience is even...

GDC 2011: Spacetime Studios returns to Blackstar

I last spoke with Spacetime Studios' CEO Gary Gattis last year at GDC Online in Austin, and when I saw him then, he told me his company was commissioned to create a PC MMO for NCsoft called Blackstar. Spacetime spent months and months of work on the project before it was abruptly canceled,...
