Tibia - Not Just Another Free Mmorpg

Recommended Posts

I'm sure not many people would be interested in playing a 2D MMORPG in this day and age, but Tibia deserves special mention, as it has been online for more than a decade. Wikipedia gives a good introduction of Tibia which I couldn't match, so here it is:


Tibia is a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) created by CipSoft GmbH. It is one of the oldest MMORPGs and was considered most noteworthy in its early years; however, with the development of MMORPGs its popularity has grown much slower than others gaming communities. Its most unique aspect is being in a 2D environment, which is expected to contribute to the slow growth of the game as the gaming community rapidly shifted to 3D. It was first released in January 1997.[3] It is a free game which is open to the public, though players have the option to pay a fee in order to upgrade to a premium account, granting special in-game benefits, including additional areas to explore, access to vocation promotions, and extra spells.

Online since 1997 - that's quite an achievement and it's a wonder that it's still managing to get a lot of players today. A majority of the players are from Brazil and Poland and these players are very friendly with their compatriots while giving the cold shoulder to others. That however, doesn't ruin the game entirely. It's free to play and inspite of being a 2D game it still manages to put in a lot of fun in the gameplay. It's nothing compared to World of Warcraft, yet it's definitely worth a try.


Like other MMORPGs this one tends to get boring after playing for a while too - I stopped after two months. Just give it a try if you have nothing else worth doing. You might enjoy the gameplay and it's always funny trying to get someone from Brazil to talk to you - they mutter something in their language and run away :)
