Ryzom is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed by the independent French studio Nevrax. The game launched in September 2004 under the name 'The Saga of Ryzom' and received little attention at the time. In August 2006, the name was simplified to 'Ryzom' for marketing purposes. Ryzom is labeled as Science-Fantasy by the creators due to storyline elements that are typically found in both science fiction and fantasy genres. The game's engine, NeL, was created by Nevrax and licensed under the GPL. NeL is currently open source and allows anyone to add to it... Here The game earned the Best Story award at MMORPG.COM's 2005 Reader's Choice Awards... Here Allowing players complete control over everything they do is something not many Online games can quote.
Players are not trapped in the "one class only" situation that most MMO's nowadays place them in. Ryzom gives the player the option to learn every single skill in the game, or concentrate on whichever you prefer, for as long as you want; or indeed to what depth you prefer.
Recently players were treated to a new function placed on the left-hand side of the Official Site...Here in the form of Feedback. This evidently shows an uncommon feat from companies and developers alike; what the players want. The feedback site is proving incredibly useful, showing a vested interest by players and what they do, and indeed, do not like in the game.The current owner, Winch Gate is showing that with a little time and focus, much can be achieved. Indeed since the departure of Game Forge France, the game has gone from strength to strength, utilising the feedback from players, and the consistant help from the CS Departments.
