After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the development team over at Phat Loot Studios has fully announced its monster-taming MMO, Untamed Isles.
However, few have tried to turn the monster-taming genre into an MMO where players can capture and battle monsters together online.
Now, Phat Loot Studios is attempting to do just that with its new MMORPG Untamed Isles, which plans to release in Early Access on Steam later this year.
Untamed Isles is a monster-taming MMORPG
Phat Loot Studios launched a Kickstarter campaign for Untamed Isles on August 26, 2021, which fans funded in a little over a week.
According to Phat Loot, the game aims to break the standard conventions of the genre by “launching with over one million visually and tactically unique monsters.”
The team achieved this by starting with ten different base species of ‘tames,’ which each tame’s head, legs, torso, and tail being “randomly mixed to create a variety of combinations.”
The team spurred randomization by assigning each tame one of 15 mood types upon capture, which affects the color and combat style of the monster.
Untamed Isles’ combat features a “Rock/Paper/Scissors style” where Defense beats Attack, Attack beats Utility, and Utility beats Defense.
In terms of exploration, Isles will apparently have unique weather systems, dungeons, PvP areas, and even professions to choose from.
Though Untamed Isles isn’t the first monster-taming MMO, with Temtem making waves when it launched on January 21, 2020, it looks as though Untamed Isles will be just as ambitious.
