Yes, there is a game calling itself the “lazy Twitter MMORPG.” It was only a matter of time.
What’s an MMORPG? A massively multiplayer online role-playing game, naturally.
And if you aren’t playing them yet, you soon will be. So why not start with what you know?
Tweeria is a game that supposedly requires “minimal user involvement.”
Everytime you tweet, your alter ego finds adventures, kills monsters or gets items.Tweeria is proud to bring free RPG art and game here in Twitter!
It calls itself a lazy, do nothing, game – but that’s not entirely true. Yes, we’ll explain.
When you sign on, you pick your faction – each comes with a backstory:
And you also pick a race and class (Warrior, Hunger, Mage, and so on). From there, your character will perform different actions depending on these settings and your Twitter activity.
Your character may help or receive help from other Tweerians and, according tot he site, “you can control him just a bit — [but] your character prefers to do all his heroic things independently.”
Within my first 15 minutes, I unlocked by first achievement:
So what’s there to “play” then? Well, if you enable the PvP or “player vs player” mode, there are few fun things you can do – like cast spells on people and you can join a guild and go on raids (that take an HOUR to complete?!) and this stuff (to name just a few):
If you mention a friendly player and include hashtag #pewpew in your tweet, you fight that player (but the winner does not get a reward).
You know you want to turn some unsuspecting Twitter followers into peasants and attack them. Don’t even try to deny it.
And you can “write a place’s hashtag in a tweet to order your character to go to specific point of interest (such as a dungeon). Click on the marker of place on the world map to get information about this place.”
Want to check it out? Join me there and take a look around. If you don’t sign in each week, your character goes to sleep, but that’s okay. Naps are nice too. Lazy.
I’ll be waiting in the Desert of Sorrow.
