So once again, while I should be working, I find myself immersed in another MMO. But this one is an indie Flash MMO called Skyrates! RPS readers will already know it but it has a great feel and works off good old fashioned IE-fire and forget gameplay instead of the tradition high graphics grind which MMOing has become recently. It’s early days for me and my character Ginger McBiggles so far, but we’ve already sold some bread and fish, shot down three bastards, and upgraded the engines in our old Junker. Happy times.
In case that wasn’t clear, Skyrates is a game where you pretend to be an air pirate and fly between floating islands in the sky trading, shooting, and being variously awesome. Chillgasmic.
