MMO 'Project: Gorgon' released in Early Access with day-1 Linux support

Posted by , | Views: 5,967

The MMO Project: Gorgon [Steam, Official Site] has officially entered Early Access on Steam and they've even put out day-1 Linux support.

It's the same MMO I wrote about having an experimental Linux version back in January, it turns out they later decided to make sure Linux was a fully supported platform in a dev post:

Previously I'd said that the initial rollout on Steam would only be for Windows and Mac, and that Linux users would be unable to play for a while until the Linux version was ready. That's dumb and we aren't going to do that. Instead, we just delayed the Steam launch until it was ready on all three platforms. So when the game is for sale on Steam, it will be for sale for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Well then—that's actually awesome, makes me very happy and makes their game certainly worth supporting. It's fantastic to see more new MMOs arrive on Linux, as it's a genre we've traditionally been starved for.

About the game:

Project: Gorgon is a 3D fantasy MMORPG (massively-multiplayer online role-playing game) featuring an immersive experience that allows the player to forge their own path through exploration and discovery. We don't guide you through a world on rails, and as a result, there are many hidden secrets awaiting discovery. Project: Gorgon also features an ambitious skill-based leveling system that bucks the current trend of pre-determined classes, allowing the player to combine skills in order to create a truly unique playing experience.

I was personally quite impressed with the early build I tested, which has no doubt seen plenty of improvements over the last few months leading to the EA release today. 

It's usually £30.99, but they have a 25% off sale going until March 19th so now is a good time to grab it. Will you be grabbing it? We've reached out for review keys, hopefully we can cover it in more detail and livestream it soon.

I don't know...seems kind of tempting...It's been forever since I've played an MMO.

Looks remarkably like a MMO from 2000. Could this be a mobile port?

It's a husband/wife team who have worked on some of the older heavy hitter MMOs. I played the alpha for a few hours a couple of months back and I actually had a fair amount of fun (probably more than I ever had with Albion for example).

I'm quite keen to try playing this. Am I $30 to $40 keen? Not yet, probably not. But I'm tempted.

Watching a video review of this, and apparently despite the pretty primitive graphics there's a tonne of content. The writing is apparently quite funny, with skills like "Room Temperature Ball" and the ability to level up dying.

Despite the...less than inspiring visuals, this may be worth a look after all.

Hmm , don;t think I'll pick this one up.
Did not have much fun with it.
World seemed pretty empty when i tested it and their tutorial island was very frustrating to get through.
Some interesting ideas sure , but not enough for me.

I play Gorgon from time to time since 2014, and if it's quite ugly (technically + artistically), it offers a real alternative in the MMOG landscape, with very nice choices in design, quests system, semi-classless, loots, skills, gameplay...

There is a non-official Linux launcher for some years too, and i'm glad to see it's coming to Steam with day 1 Linux tag.

can they release one MMO on Linux that doesn't look like AIDS

I played the beta for a bit. It's a fun game. I see a lot of potential, as I'm sure they will continue to add to it.
