What do little girls dream of?
A number of journalists, myself included, are pretty psyched about this new, small-scale MMO called Lila Dreams. It's still in the early stages of development, but it's due to be published by Kongregate later this year, when it'll be available to play free. According to designer Jason McIntosh, the game takes place in the imagination of an eleven-year-old girl, where "darkness... surrounds the world, constantly encroaching inward and eating away the landscape. But there is also going to be an array of strange creatures from Lila's thoughts and nightmares with which to contend and befriend." The concept art, the creative concept, and the game's small (three-person) but enthusiastic team make Lila Dreams a promising title to keep an eye on when it comes to innovation in MMOs. We all love fantasy titles like World of Warcraft and social environments like Second Life. but it's refreshing to think there are new artistic directions we can take virtual worlds!
