Mutable Realms, Inc. today revealed that it has been working on a new category of games that provide unprecedented opportunities for people to meet online in a shared fantasy experience. The game, which has been under development for over a year, is titled “Wish”, and is one of the most ambitious projects that the gaming industry has ever seen. Wish will be presented to the public at the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo from May 14 to 16.
Unlike other Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPG) that confine the player to a server with only several hundred other players, Wish raises the bar by defining Ultra Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (UMMORPG). Wish employs a server cluster architecture that scales to tens of thousands of players in a shared and seamless 3D fantasy world. The game is based on the Internet Communication Engine (Ice), developed by ZeroC.
