Today marks the beginning of the Open Beta for Secondhand Lands, a fairy-tale world populated by furry-tailed adventurers such as sheep, wolves, catgirls, and scrappers. Now is the purr-fect time for fur-lovers and just plain curious gamers to experience the four-legged world complete with over 120 handwritten quests, an a la carte skill system, and player to player mounting.
In addition to the same vanilla game-play mechanics of other massive online games, Secondhand Lands brings a feature never seen before: player to player mounting. "It's a completely consensual process, of course," says Bobby Thurman, owner and lead developer of Secondhand Lands. Players can equip a saddle and invite others to ride them into battle for an experience unrivaled by mere partying.
