You've played so many role-playing games that your fingers automatically go to their respective hotkeys even when you're simply typing an e-mail. But your wallet is empty. What do you do?
Well, Seven Lights has a solution for you, and it comes in the form of The Continuum, an online game that is turning some heads and keeping that spare change in its advocates' pockets. You heard it right; The Continuum is free. Now, before you hit the back button in your browser because you already think the game's not worth checking out due to its $0 price-tag, that's not to say it's a bad game. Before its initial release in late June of 2008, The Continuum already had over 50,000 users pre-registered for its arrival. While that testament may be nothing impressive when considering some of the blockbuster titles hitting the shelves this year (Wrath of the Lich King, anyone?), for a Flash-based game played in a browser that's an extremely healthy turnout. Still not convinced? Let's explore."
