Sandbox MMO Salem to continue independently
Published Paradox Interactive dropped the free-to-play sandbox MMORPG Salem. The game’s development will continue independently by Salem’s 2 man dev team.
Salem is a hardcore survival sandbox MMORPG that features permadeath. It sets you at the colonial era and your goal is to make a homestead and survive the wilderness.
Seatribe posted about the split on the official game forum.
“Effective from July 8, Seatribe will assume full support management and development ownership of Salem: The Crafting MMO. Any decisions taken from that point on will be taken by and communicated through Seatribe to you – the community. Paradox Interactive will start phasing out their involvement in the project from today and on July 8 the game for all intents and purposes will be Seatribe’s to run.
“We firmly believe this decision is in the best interest of Seatribe, Paradox Interactive and absolutely for the community as you will have a development team working even more direct with you and the game.”
If you’re looking for an “alternative” sandbox MMORPG, Salem might be the choice for you. Check out the official website for more info.
