On the topic of similarity, Gameloft is at it again. Graev showed this to me and I thought it was pretty funny. It’s essentially WoW for the iPhone.
Now before anyone gets too crazy about it, Gameloft has made a name for themselves by shamelessly taking the exact premise and idea of a game and remaking it as well as porting things to the iphone and ipad. I don’t know how they avoid getting sued; I honestly have not done any research into it. I wonder how it will turn out and whether or not it will have anywhere near the scope of even WoW’s 2004 original launch. (I doubt it.) I’m also curious about whether there will be any subscription, which I also doubt.
Mobile MMO’s are getting closer and closer to being a reality. How utterly horrifying.
