Cold Tea Studios, an indie developer, has been working on Fantasy Tales Online for longer than they care to admit. Their vision is not only one of a 2D MMORPG where players enjoy questing and working their way through randomly generated dungeons, but is also a vision of player created cities in a sandbox type of environment.




In need of art assets, Fantasy Tales Online has taken to Kickstarter to raise $25,000 with most of those funds going directly towards commissioning pixel art assets with some of the funds going towards scaling the MMO experience.

Currently, Fantasy Tales Online is slated to be a free to play title and it is currently up for Greenlighting on Steam. It’s an interesting project in my opinion. I like the nostalgia feel of the game but wonder if it can truly create an experience I want to log into over and over again.

If you’re curious, head on over to the Fantasy Tales Online website as you can play the game now to get a peek at what Cold Tea Studios is trying to accomplish. The download only takes a few minutes.

        Most of us probably have no problem that it’s a 2D game, i even find these oldshcool games more enjoyable but.. i alvredy got bored of it just by looking at that “flashy” trailer, in game like this it’s just gona be quest afer quest of killing monsters, which is yea same as in other games, but with this crappy and boring battle system that’s gona get boring fast.

      Yeah, don’t really care if it’s 2D or 3D, but yeah, this game isn’t great for this time period…

    Isn’t it nice how MMORPGs are going back in time instead of forward? xD Well for the U.S. anyway.

      forward? you mean like the epic The Order or AC Unity? they went “forward”

    Adding sparkles to crap to make it look better once it comes out might seem like a good idea, but in the end it all goes down the drain, you might as well just flush it out now.. and poop.

    It looks like one more eclipse mmorpg maker game o,O

    Hmph. Looks like another classic MMORPG formula like that old Fantasy Online game a couple years back. Still, could be something worth checking out, it all depends on how much it will cost.
