|GameSpyDaily conducted an interview with MindArk's Patric Sundstroem and grilled him on his company's SciFi MMORPG Project Entropia.
Here's a teaser:
GameSpyDaily: For those folks that don't know anything about Project Entropia, give us a quick primer on what the game is all about?
Patric: Project Entropia is the future of interactive entertainment. It will give you access, through the Internet, to an enormous, fantastic 3D environment where we expect millions of users to interact with each other. The Project Entropia client software will be available at no cost, and there won't be any monthly subscription charges payable to MindArk.
The goal is to create the first complete virtual universe, a world where you as a participant have the possibility to live the life you've always dreamed of, and to realise the fantasies and dreams of a life that suits you.
Upon entering Project Entropia as a citizen, you'll be able to create your very own 3D persona. As a user you'll be given great scope in this area, you can create an individual appearance, that either represents your true self, who you would want to be, or a complete figment of your imagination.
You'll enter a fantastic planet called Calypso that is rich in breath-taking flora, fauna and landscapes, a brave new world where humanity has settled and attempted to make a home. It is a place where every pioneer is crucial to the colony's survival - traitorous robots are attacking the planet and trying to rid it of humans.
We plan to create a universe that is constantly evolving, both from MindArk's influence as well as from the activities of our users in Project Entropia. We want everybody that takes part in Project Entropia to feel that they are participating in the evolution of this universe.
