Salem is a free-to-play MMO that is being developed by Seatribe and scheduled to be published on the Paradox Connect platform by Paradox Interactive before 2012. Set in a fantastic background, the story of Salem is dated back to the New England centuries ago when colonists arrived at here as trailblazers opening up lands and starting a new life. Players will take up the role of the courageous pioneer colonists who manage to survive the settlement by crafting, farming and building, all connected with the 17th century alchemy.
Imagine of such a creature that has ill-fitting skins covered with warts and blemishes and spends most of its life weeping. Quite a horror, right? Yet the most terrifying part about it lies in the hearsay that it could escape by melting completely into a pool of tears and bubbles once cornered or even captured. It is called Squonk, a legendary creature in American folklore or fakelore. Do you want to encounter it and even try to catch it? At least, you may try your luck in the forest of the virtual world in Salem.
From every individual character to the panorama of scenery, the entire in-game graphics all give off a taste of Gothic art in a light-hearted fashion. Yet inclusion of monsters lurking around and the concept of Permanent Death intensify the dark element to make the game all the more compelling.
Besides the Squonk mentioned above, other mysterious beings in the folklore will enter players’ view, such as witches as well as the Hidebehind, a critter that wins its name from its feat of being able to suck stomach to a point where it’s slender enough to hide behind any tree or even the preyed human himself/herself.
And in this persistent world, players can indulge themselves or revenge others in the open PvP combat with Permanent Death. As to the Permanent Death, the game ushers in the concept of generation rather than the typical single player, which means once players’ characters are killed in the game, their descendents will take turns to pick up from the point the deceased leave off and take revenge.
More than a Mystical Land, Salem lets you be the legendary hero to conquer the unknown world, quest for valuable treasure, and craft weapons and equipment.
So are you confident to take charge of your own town and stay clear of Death’s way? Why not spin a yarn in Salem?
