Coming soon: ‘Planet Michael’, a Michael Jackson MMO
Called Planet Michael, get ready for a dizzying amount of child molesters playing MMO jokes.
There’s not much to say or show at this point, other than a logo and some unimpressive looking screenshots. According to the FAQ, the team involved is still trying to “conceptualize” what it’ll be about. But “clear directions” have already been found. In the way of “music, dancing, quests, healing and caring for animals”.
The primary aim is to celebrate MJ’s life as an artist and humanitarian. That’s nice. Unfortunately the developers of the game, SEE, whom I can’t find any information about online, is being assisted by the Estate of Michael Jackson. Whom I would have to assume is being controlled by MJ’s parents, hardly the best examples of upstanding citizens.
Also, when attempting to sign up, the homepage was super sluggish; if these people can’t handle a web form, I can only imagine how they’re going to drive a game in which thousands of people are interacting simultaneously. I’m a much bigger fan of MJ than dragons and orcs and any of that crap, so color me interested nonetheless!
