Mad World Trailer Shows Off Boss Fights, Cooking, And Wolf Pets
Remember Mad World? It's that isometric free-to-play MMO that was announced in 2017, was planned for a fall 2018 launch, and then floated the idea of crowdfunding before inking a publishing deal with Netmarble last November. At the time, developer Jandisoft said that communication silence was due to the workings of that deal but promised things would get better.
It's been more than a year since than, and ... well, there hasn't been much to report in 2020. There is a new gameplay trailer out today, at least, so that's something. It shows off lots of flashy effects and snippets of several boss battles, as well as various other bits of content, including a progression tree, something that looks like cooking, and feeding what looks like an adorable wolf cub. The next scene shows the player mounting a larger, adult wolf, possibly indicating that you'll be able to raise pets to aid you in battle.
It all looks cool, but the frequent delays and minimal communication seem to be wearing gamers thin. I'll be honest, when I saw this come across my feed, I thought "Is that still a thing?" On the one hand, it's probably good that we're not getting news about a game in alpha running holiday events because it might mean the devs are hard at work on the core game. But it's also possible to swing too far in the other direction, and when your game's been promised for so long, there needs to be a little more attention paid to your fans so they don't completely lose faith.
