Enter gamigo’s MMORPG Lands of Grim and Other

Free-to-play MMORPG publisher gamigo is planning to rock 2012 with a massively ambitious pair of massively multiplayer role-playing worlds, both of which can be seen in these new gameplay videos that were released at this week’s “next-g” European press event.

The showstopper is definitely the Unreal Engine 3 powered Otherland. Singapore studio RealU has been hard at work adapting the sci-fi virtual reality universe of Tad Williams’ novel series into an MMORPG, and from the first gameplay footage I’d say they’re on their way to redefining the free-to-play genre with the game’s gorgeously diverse multiverse world design.

Grimlands is gamigo’s other MMO project. Drago Entertainment is developing this post-apocalyptic, third-person RPG shooter, which takes place on Earth 20 years after cataclysmic earthquakes have ravaged the planet. Mutants, marauders and psychopaths now roam the land, fighting simply to survive. The gameplay shown is only from the alpha build so the game still looks a bit rough around the edges, but I totally see some potential for an online world inspired by Fallout or Rage.
