Game Description and Comments
Furcadia is a free fantasy MMORPG that focuses on social interaction and imagination. In fact the makers of Furcadia call it a MMOSG or Massively Multiplayer Online Social Game. The basic concept is that animals can walk around like humans and speak to each other. Do not expect heavy action and combat because the game is more about interacting with others not killing them. In the place of combat you will find player-created content and heavy doses of roleplaying. While many action MMOs have been axed over the past couple of years Furcadia has been able to carve out a nice little niche in the industry and thrive.
- Player created content such as art games and various software programs.
- Low system requirements.
- Extremely active community with contests festivals and raffles.
- Very small download.
- Heavy emphasis on roleplaying.

Comment: There is so much to do. Name it and it can be done. Friendly people and great concept. Awesome RP and chat alike. Built for a variety of people whether kids teens or adults. Don’t tell me you got bored or there was nothing to do. People who say that probably didn’t move anywhere! You have to get OFF your arriving map and go to AI where there are over 200 options on where you go. They have a fairly reliable help source and even a welcome committee. Awesome game that I have been playing for 4 years.
Comment: Furcadia is the ideal Roleplay Medium for those who choose to create their own content. The software allows you to create your own worlds called “dreams” and script them using the easy to understand “DragonScript Editor.” This allows users to program their own game rules mechanics etc (More features for this are in the works).
Characters are by default represented by different animals both real and fantasy. The game also allows for artwork patches to be uploaded with your “dreams” and you may make characters Humans.
Furcadia is designed as a Socially Interactive game and allows for Persona (Free-Form) play or Strict (Regular Rules/Mechs) Roleplay. Furcadia does have its own Continuity but players are free to design their own and share it with others as mentioned above.
This is one of the most diverse Roleplay engines out there as it allows for any type and genre of Roleplay though it will require some work on the part of at least one player to set up their own game.
Comment: Don’t be fooled by the bad start. Furcadia is an excellent example of an MMOSG. It is easy to make your own mini-games like murder mystery games. The possibilities are fully limitless as you can add your own content. I have made a few dreams myself. Even though this might not appeal to most MMORPG gamers the REAL roleplayers can find themselves at home here. I rate it a nine.
Select Negative Reviews (Edited for Presentation)
Comment: I went on this game for an hour and got bored within 6 seconds. There is nothing to do. Everywhere I went everyone was asleep and not speaking. The graphics were also terrible. I couldn’t use the tutorial and all the help people were offline. I found this game to be rubbish!
Comment: This is basically a role playing chat room with bad graphics and an added “dream making” feature. The sounds are as bad as the graphics. If you like Role Playing go for it. Otherwise run for your life!
Furcadia is free to play and download. The download is only 4.6 MB. However can buy games items in the Digo Market with real money.
