What’s ebony? Don’t know, don’t care.
But I’ll tell you more about Evony, the MMORTS game, or in it’s long form, Massively Multiplayer Online Real Time Strategy game.
Long story short, it’s an open ended real time strategy or RTS game based in the medievil era, with an almost zero boundaries and, limited only by your capacity to manage your resources, tests your capacity in managing limited resources! Heh.
The best part about this game is that, yes wait for it — wait a little more, just a little more — okay here it is, is that all you need is an internet browser and it’s free! This means that you can play it anywhere (at work? in school?), anytime (while lunching at macdonalds?)!
Now, if only my beloved Championshop Manager was something like this. Oh wait, there is already something called Hattrick, another MMORTS sports game, that ‘mimic’s the day to day routine of a football/soccer manager and is open ended (i.e there’s no ending or server resets, just like Evony).
Starting with nothing but a few meagre resources and a town hall, much alike to a game of Warcraft, you will gradually build up your town infrastructures as well as amassing your all-conquering armada. All this amidst scouring for new lands and defending against any possible invasions.
Sounds fun? Plays way better. Don’t tell my boss but I even play the game while working. All I need is a few seconds of attention every 10-15 minutes or so to check on which building are completed or which academics are researched. A slot to resume construction or forage outside your castles means more waiting time, so Evony’s game engine kind of fits me and my working pace, where I attend to customers, phonecalls and trip to the kopitiam, to get Vitasoys, at intervals.
I’ve always been a fan of RTS games, starting out with the Sims games and my all time favourite, X-Com, and Evony’s resource management system has felt like home ever since I started playing.
Better still, when I’m at home, I get to PLAY and BLOG at the same time! Kill 2 birds with 1 stone? I’m game for it!
So what do I think of Evony? It’s massive yet simple, complex yet fun, engaging and even free! What more can I ask for in a game?
