I normally hate MMORPGs, but there is one out there that is significantly different than any of the others, and it completely clears up a lot of the major problems that most MMORPGs have.  It's called Puzzle PIrates:

It's kinda like a MMORPG mixed with tetris.  Plus it's about pirates!

I have a comic that debuted a few months ago. It's pretentiously titled, "Even in the deepest heart of chaos, a glimmer of order can be found"

It's a 'constrained comic'. The concept is pretty simply. I use a random image generator to pull six random photos off the internet. I don't control the photos or their order. My job as a creator is to add word balloons to these six photos to create a consistent story with a narrative theme. If I do my job correctly, you would swear that I specifically chose the photos, but I didn't, they are random. Get it? Read a few and it'll become clear, I hope.

It updates M-F Here's the URL:

Take a look. If you like it, tell your friends. If you don't like it, tell your enemies...

I just wanted to say that I'm so happy I found this site, and to thank the people who are doing this recreation.  I've been playing video games for a very long time, and there are a few games I've played over the years that I would catagorize as almost perfect in terms of gameplay, plot, and execution (Final Fantasy Tactics, Zelda Series, Myst Series, Ogre Tactics NoL, and Ultima 4 all come to mind).  Near the top of that list is Star Control II.  I think it's a great testament to a game that I still vividly remember it 14 years after I played it.

I've already downloaded the new version and spent a few hours playing it last night.  I'd always hoped that there'd be a (real) sequel, but to be honest I'd given up hope until I came here.  I'm very psyched about the work you are doing here, and I'm looking forward to the day when I'll see an official announcement of the Star Control 4 release date!
