New Free To Play Crafting Focused MMORPG, Greed Monger, In Development
Cincinnati, OH (October 23rd, 2012) – Executive Producer and Lead Designer, Jason Appleton has begun development for a new free to play crafting MMORPG titled Greed Monger.
On day one of official launch, players will embark on a new land as they are randomly distributed amongst a variety of various landscapes, each with their own prospects for housing, wild life and aggressive creatures. Nothing else will exist, until the player creates it. Each player will be armed only with a hammer and some form of bodily cover as they venture into the unknown in efforts to stake their claim on a new land with endless opportunities for wealth, fame and power.
Greed Monger will be host to a variety of features focused on recapturing the essence of community found in the early MMORPG games such as Ultima Online. Some of these features include the following:
Greed Monger Features
Non Instanced Player Owned 3D Housing (Land Parcels Purchased in US Currency)
Decorate Your House However You'd Like
Every Finished Item In Greed Monger Is Player Crafted
The More Land Parcels You Own, The Bigger House You Can Build

The Greed Monger Development team has launched a very basic video demonstrating a bit of the land scape and atmosphere as well as examples of some player owned housing options; however the video is extremely limited. The team is currently working on a new video that will demonstrate many of the features of functions of Greed Monger that should be ready prior to its planned KickStarter Campaign.
