Orc Island has entered beta phase, players can download on PC and have a play (Direct download link further down this article, no need to register or have internet once installed). The game will be a FREE bonus when you first buy a block of land in our huge new MMO Sandbox, Virtual Earth Online. Two amazing games in one!!
The first time you spawn in to the game you will find yourself in the shallow waters on the edge of Orc Island. What you do next and how quickly you learn to work the land will determine if you survive!!
To survive you must build, manage your resources, learn to live off the land. Use the trees, plants, cactus etc to craft shelter and tools essential for your daily battle to survive.
Lots of inventory items added, more to come. The tool selection is looking great!!
You must plant and harvest crops such as corn, wheat and tomatoes. Add these to your food pot and make vegetable soup. Animals and fish will also be added to the game very soon, another source of food. The fishing dynamics are going to be really cool! Both fresh and salt water fish.
***EDIT*** Fishing is live
As the name suggests the Island is home to creatures that like to hunt for food once the sun goes down.
We have our Orc, this should be added to the game in the next few days, just working on colouring and skin texture. The combat features will also be added at the same time.
