New Old School MMORPG – Project Gorgon

New Old School MMORPG – Project Gorgon

Project Gorgon is an MMORPG that recently came to Steam early access in March 2018, Initially I wasn’t gonna cover this game due to being a bit put off by the graphics but after trying it out of my livestream I was presently surprised and enjoyed it more than I expected.


Check out my live stream where I answer questions and try different MMOs – Twitch TV:

—Project Gorgon Description—


Project: Gorgon is a 3D fantasy MMORPG (massively-multiplayer online role-playing game) featuring an immersive experience that allows the player to forge their own path through exploration and discovery. We don’t guide you through a world on rails, and as a result, there are many hidden secrets awaiting discovery. Project: Gorgon also features an ambitious skill-based leveling system that bucks the current trend of pre-determined classes, allowing the player to combine skills in order to create a truly unique playing experience.


When you play Project: Gorgon, we want you to feel as if you’re immersed in a whole new virtual world. Rather than trying to manage this with just graphics and excessive backstory, we’ve designed the game with dozens of gameplay features that make you feel like you’re really there interacting with the world, such as:

Each non-player (NPC) you meet has their own goals and interest, and reward players that choose to be their friend.
You can drop items on the ground, and other players can pick them up. What’s so great about that? Imagine laying down a trail of literal (virtual) breadcrumbs to guide your friends (or lure your enemies) into the woods.
Shopkeepers keep inventory, so you can buy items that other players have sold to them. Want to help out new players? Sell your cast-off items to the shopkeeper in the new player zone and watch the new players go to town.
If you are on fire, you can jump into a lake to put it out. This type of mechanic can have a subtle effect on your strategies, especially when you are fighting a fire mage!
You can inscribe messages onto items, write books, and even leave notes for other players. Make your name as an in-game poet, or pronounce your greatness to the world!


In Project: Gorgon you kill monsters – a lot of them – and you take their loot. In order to keep the experience fun and interesting, we’ve developed unique combat experiences to keep the fights feeling fresh. The loot is randomly generated, monsters have unique abilities, and dungeons have puzzles, traps, and terrifying bosses! The combat skills are entirely free-form. You can learn as many combat skills as you want, and use any two of them at the same time to create your own personal “class.” Project: Gorgon features dozens to choose from, including:

Battle Chemistry: Create huge explosions, inject yourself with mysterious mutagens or program a pet golem!
Unarmed Combat: Grapple and control enemies using a situational-aware combo system that varies based on where you are and what day it is.
Animal Handling: Tame animals and train them to become ferocious fighters. Then breed your best and sell their offspring to other players.
Necromancy: Seek out corpses and graveyards to raise an undead army. No graveyard around? Well, there are always the corpses of your friends.
Cow: Got turned into a cow by that boss? That sucks. But learn some kicks and how to stampede, and you’ll be right back out there kicking grass in no time!
That’s just a few! There’s also Sword Fighting, Combat Psychology, Staff Fighting, Sigil Scripting, Mentalism, and more.

MMORPG, Old School, Open World, Retro, Classless Combat, Classic, Vanilla, MMO, PVP, PVE, Crafting, Nostalgic, Asheron’s Call, Everquest, Pantheon: Rise Of The Fallen, New, Early Access, Indie

New Old School MMORPG – Project Gorgon


  1. Where are the epic battles? WHo plays mmo for pve and questing? Why not just play a good RPG, somes have co-op element too…
    Whether you want pve and questing to be poor or epic, it can't be the finality of such product. You don't talk in details or show about anything else.

  2. I think holding hand isn't a wrong thing, but games are to polished or boring, wow classic as a example doesn't hold your hand if you don't install a quest helper, but that's not the one thing it made it great, the games were harder and if you got a piece of gear it meant something, today gear doesn't matter and that's sad.
    Skyrim is a weird example but if you get gear enchant it, enchant your weapons and all you are doing more damage too, and that's fun for me.

  3. Played it quite a while ago, back in beta, it was a blast! But my PC cant handle it anymore, and 40 bucks is something i cant afford just yet for one game, but soon… soon! Ill return and ill love P:G once again <3

  4. the graphics are almost to shitty for me, but i really like the fact that nothing holds your hand and skilling is more important.will definetry check that out!!!

  5. This has me hard as a rock. I used to play AC and I’m so fucking excited. Just gotta dust off the old tower and get this bitch downloaded

  6. if people really wanted to play old games, then just play the old ones that are still alive today, make it more active geez, gamers really don't know what they want.

  7. I tried project gorgon and it was really really great but it felt very incomplete. Maybe I'll come back when it's more complete.

  8. Ever since I’ve watched this a few days ago I have been obsessed with this game. Thank you for showing me this! This is my first OS MMORPG and I love it

  9. Looks like it has a ton of potential, but the price seems a bit excessive for the current state of the game. I will have to keep an eye on it though.

  10. This game is very fun, it revives some of the old RuneScape feelings and it is very community driven. It has no super deidcated endgame (yet), no balance and care for pvp, it's really an MMO taking some of the great things that have been lost to time (having fun ) and gives them to the player as well as new great things (Words of Power are amazingly fun)

  11. it looks garbage this game lol. why the hell i want to play 2018 such a game with this graphics hell why the devs are even develop such ** were 2018 not 1964. when i want play shitty graphics game i just hurt myself with wow.
