GameOgre: Wakfu First Impressions


Last week, I spent a while wandering around another closed-beta: Wakfu, a tactical combat MMO produced by Square-Enix. I took my experience and published a first-impressions article over at GameOgre.com of this free-to-play MMO.

While the game’s graphics don’t entirely play nice with my eyes—too small and doll-like even with the zoom feature—it still has a lot of cute effects going for it. From the turn-based tactical combat, the very cute animals (killing sheep called gobbals really) and also a socio-ecological feature set for its persistent universe.

Killing too much of the wrong thing makes it go away forever; of course, a portion of the game can be had by re-planting in the wake of destroyers. I believe that experience can also be gained doing that—although not the sort of experience that aids you in combat.
