Glitchless, often maligned and variously abused by people challenging the dev’s claims (<- click this link if no others) with scandallous accusations, have finally launched their first (I believe) MMO: Nodiatis. It’s not the ground-breaking Dawn that that people refused to believe in back in 2000. But after 8 years, they have proven the doubters wrong with what is certainly an MMO(*):
(Full 49Mb WMV video here large enough to read the text; the game has sound, but for some reason it got stripped out by Movie Maker)
(* If, by MMO, you mean graphical MUD, like The Realm)
My character’s class was an “alcoholic” which may be why combat consists of clicking auto attack.

I followed Lum’s link before recapping on Glitchless. I’ve been professionally involved in web-related development for 12 years, and their site manages to trigger all my spider senses. I saw no evidence of mischief, I just felt very uncomfortable using their site and certainly wouldn’t do so outside the VM I run my “safe” browsers in. After a while playing, their java-based client told me it had run out of memory and I should restart my browser. When I did and logged back in, it told me I needed to upgrade my Java and provided a link. Given I already have the latest java and runtime, I wasn’t clicking on that link even in my sandbox.
All things considered, I’m sorry to be sounding alarmist. Assuming everything is bonafide, although it’s a 2d mud-style clickfest, it looks like it plays with lots of interesting concepts (like PvP permadeath) that people have tried and learned from elsewhere, but it might be fun to see one big melting polt of all those ideas.
