Dark and Light is a fantasy sandbox MMORPG originally released back in 2006. After some mixed reviews from the player base, Dark and Light was taken out of the spotlight and has since reemerged in an updated fashion. The developing team, Snail Games, has just recently announced that they are opening their doors to a select few who fill out a Closed Beta sign up survey. The news came coupled with a trailer full of in-game assets and actual gameplay which you can watch here.
The trailer shows a number of environments, enemies, and player characters all in varying situations. The aforementioned Closed Beta survey link sits in the video’s description. The survey itself is rather self-explanatory. It asks those interested to provide an email address, a Steam account name, and then asks some general gaming-related questions including things like how many hours a week you spend gaming. It also asks you to specify what your PC specs are so be aware that you might need a high-powered machine to run this game.
Since Dark and Light is in Closed Beta, the developers are always putting out updates which we then cover here at MMOexaminer. The game boasts a number of features including a massive sandbox-style world and “limitless possibility to craft, build, and unlock over 100 abilities.”
Snail Games has truly taken criticism from the community to heart and is working towards making Dark and Light a fantasy MMORPG to rival the big names in the genre. One look at the Steam store page images and a player can see just how beautiful and ambitious the game world seems to be.
