So thanks to a free beta key from MassivelyOP (they’re gone now), I downloaded and decided to try out Riders of Icarus. Of course, the game nabbed my interest when it came to taming and riding mounts. It reminded me a bit of the concepts in Dragon’s Prophet, a game that broke my heart and made me much more wary of playing opt-in betas for money. Thankfully, the two games are not alike in any other way than riding dragons.
Anyhow, I’ve put a little time into the game tonight. I can’t say anything or show any of my screenshots since it’s all under NDA. But I can say that I’m pleasantly surprised at what I’ve seen. I will be giving it more time in the future.
