Developer Maata Games announced Closed Beta testing for its free-to-play strategy based empire building MMO, Erectus the Game. Players take on the role of Homo sapiens 130,000 years in the past. At the time, they are forced to share the world with Homo erectus and end up engaged in a battle for the fate of humanity. Players build empires, raise armies, and team up against the common enemy.

The beta will be open to a limited number of players. Those interested in testing the game can grab a key via MMOGames.

Lol..
Is "Maata Games" on drugs or something?
Coming up with a name like "Erectus" is like asking to be trolled endlessly.
But.. that may actually have been genius, there is hardly any need to advertise since a name like that will get around whether you want it or not.

"they are forced to share the world with Homo erectus"

This one is practically asking for a scandal. ^^)

"130 000 years ago... we built villages (o_o) and cities (O_O) and great walls around ourselves (0___0) ..." And when I think I'm already facepalming hard enough the video proceeds to show sword cavalry and chariots. Why did they even bother with masquerading this as history of humanity? Just because they wanted to use word "eREKTus" so badly? -_- Sigh.
