Think you can do a better job?

Many players insist loudly and long that they could do a better job then the Blizzard devs. If only they had the 3 years and $20 million required to create an MMORPG these days? Now they don't have that excuse any more.

Say hello to Multiverse, a free software development kit (reg required) that gives you all the tools you need to build your own MMORPG. Quests, Inventory, movement, combat and monster AI functionality is already built in plus a free set of starter assets is provided. They not only provide code and content, but customers as well. Any player who has played one Multiverse MMOG can play any Multiverse MMOG with the same program. And Multiverse handles all financial transactions.

What's left? Your creative vision of what an MMORPG should be. It wouldn't hurt if you had art design skills, modeling talent or class balancing experience. What does Multiverse get out of it? 20% of your revenue. Not a bad deal for all the free service they provide upfront. They also provide a movie of their GDC 2007 presentation that showcases early builds by some pioneering developers.

So knowing nothing stands between you and your vision of WoW 2.0, what kind of world would you make?
