[URL="http://www.wurmonline.com"]Wurm Online[/URL] is a sandbox MMO, first featured in PCGamer (UK) in the June issue of last year with a large feature by freelance writer Quinns. The article inspired many of us to start a village founded by Mthec and Kelron on the Golden Valley Server. I believe it was also recently featured in the US version of the mag.
The village currently has settlements on both the free, and one of the premium (Pay to Play) servers, Freedom.
