EverQuest, the game everyone has heard of. A lot of people have played for a short period of time at least and it is credited with being one of the first Western Massively Multiplayer games to hit the mainstream all the way back in 1999. Fast forward to the present and over the last decade it has had seventeen expansions, given birth to its sequel, EverQuest II and several PlayStation 2 games. But starting today, one server will be taking a page from Prince, and partying like its 1999. The clocks are being rolled back to when EverQuest was just a baby. Back when I had the pleasure of having my first experience with the game.

WonderKing is a 2D, side-scrolling MMORPG that takes players on an adventurous journey with story-by-story quests, much like a fantasy novel. Along the way, players will travel from beautiful beaches to murky marshlands and frigid snowfields as they battle to save the world.
These days, players are spoilt for choice when it comes which MMORPG they play. There are literally hundreds of different games just waiting for the next ship-jumping gamer to subscribe to. With World of Warcraft recruiting enough players to populate a small country, and new MMOs hitting the shelves nearly every month, MMO gaming is bigger than ever. Of course not all of them can have a bite of the MMO gaming cherry, and developers lavish millions of dollars on their titles in the hope that you prefer spending time in their virtual world. Some of them have went on to do quite well, many have fallen by the wayside, and there are a select few that people just forgot existed.
