Twin Skies is a MMO created by Meteor Games, founded by Adam Powell and Donna Williams, creators of the successful Neopets. Twin Skies is Meteor Games' first gaming project. It is planned to enter Beta testing in late 2008, with a projected full launch in 2009. According to a statement from Adam Powell, the game "aims to change the way gamers of all ages play and socialize in MMOs." The game will be a fantasy-based MMO, with dark fantasy influences such as Labyrinth, Dark Crystal, and James and the Giant Peach. The game is currently under development, however players can currently sign up for an account, choose a character name, and participate in several activities on the site, such as chatting on the forum and playing several flash mini-games on the website.
The game will be powered by BigWorld, which provides a virtual world engine.
When the actual 3D game is released, there will be several races and classes of characters to play as. Your character will also have a pet to care for. There will be some realistic pets (e.g. kittens, puppies, and piglets) and some imaginary ones (e.g. Birp and Salabounders). After your character is chosen, you will be able to explore an entire world. There will be NPC characters and many monsters and beasts. There will be many areas to explore, each with their own characteristics and places to visit. These features are all currently in progress of creation, though, and can change at any time.
Currently, there are several mini games to play. They include Witchery 101, Legends of Laundry, and Om Nom Nom. Players earn Meteorites, the Twin Skies currency, after playing mini games. There is currently no use for the Meteorites except for using them to bet on a game that resembles the slot machine. There are also achievements that can be meet, and once done, award the player a badge.
