This is the first in a new series of live stream demos that will allow players to get a look behind the scenes into the progress being made on the company’s forthcoming titles.
"Our players have asked for more info, more access and a greater view into how our title line-up is coming along,” said Gordon Van Dyke, producer at Paradox Interactive. “We’ve found a way to bring our community deeper into the process through live streaming demos, show off our progress and give our fans and players the chance to ask about how things are developing.”
Set in a fantastical New England, Salem offers free form Massively Multiplayer gameplay in a persistent, ever-changing, online world. Players take the roles of intrepid colonists from the Old World seeking to make lives for themselves in the New. The colonists are able to use a unique crafting, farming and building system inspired by 17th century alchemy.
Although Salem takes place in a light-hearted gothic setting with a charming and cute art-style, there is also open Player-versus-Player combat complete with permadeath and inheritance. Players will also experience a mysterious darker side to the world with creatures based off actual colonist folklore like Squonks, Hidebehinds and of course witches in an open sand box world.
