Are The MMORPGs Coming?

MMORPGs. Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Games. Watch this space – they could be the next big thing at your favourite online casino. Developer eGenesis is banking on the very social aspect of online gaming giving them a way to reach all the online casino fans out there – and so they’re developing Dragon’s Tale, a sort of hybrid MMORPG / online Casino Games.

We had to look up the MMORPG things. They’re extremely popular – you will perhaps have heard of games like World of Warcraft and EVE – and eGenesis will be hoping to recreate a fraction of those titles’ success with Dragon’s Tale.

The game itself does look to be an interesting new addition to the online casino experience. It’s easiest to explain as lots of games within a single game, and, from what we can gather, those games will include cow tipping, dragon egg hunts, fishing, duck feeding, & running monkeys through mazes (none of which would could have guessed before we found out...).

eGenesis lead designer Andrew Tepper says: ‘there are 60 different games so far, with new ones being added all the time, & every one of them is a new take on gambling. About half the games are luck-based & half are skill-based.’

Sounds genuinely interesting to us, and we’d be more than likely to give it a go. We think we can see where eGenesis are coming from – the social aspect of a Online Pokies tournament or an online Poker table is definitely a huge positive for us. Not to mention the option to play with a dealer live and in real time over a video link.

Tepper puts it like this: ‘the first thing that stuck me about online gambling today is that it's a pretty lonely experience, typically one player in a web browser, watching a 2D slot machine.’

‘I've taken what I've learned in the last 15 years building MMORPGs and for the first time applied that to gambling. I've created an intensely social world where players can explore the game world together, share techniques, and rely on each other as they level up by completing gambling quests.’

Don’t hold your breath for Dragon’s Tale to replace the slick, modern video pokies at our favourite online casinos like Spin Palace Casino and Gaming Club Casino. And don’t expect the prizes on offer to be anything like the massive progressive pokies jackpots. But we’re always ready to try a little something new – watch this space for more on the social future of online gaming...
