game:Secondhand Lands  

Enter a land inhabited by sheep and wolves in an eternal struggle to dominate the lands for your faction. You can increase your skills by exploring the quest based content based upon the Grimm fairy tales or simply go at it on your own. Secondhand Lands features rich social system, unusual physics, and factional combat.

Players are guaranteed a unique gaming experience in Secondhand Lands with witty dialogue and hilarious quests. Bobby Thurman, Owner of Callipygian Games, remarks, "I want people to play Secondhand Lands and feel uncomfortable, but not to the point that they'd quit; only to the point that they'd want to keep going and see what we have for them next." He adds that they also provided the same "vanilla" gameplay mechanics players have come to expect in large-scale massive online games, "But they don't have super-leaping sheep."

At launch, players will choose one of two available races, the Sheep or Wolf, with end-game faction warfare taking place between followers of Bo Peep and Little Red Riding hood. "Players can easily stand out from the herd (or pack). With the high level of customization offered by our player advancement system, characters will rarely be identical to one another," says Patrick Rogers, Designer for Callipygian games. He adds, "However, this system was designed with our casual players in mind. We don't want them to be completely overshadowed by the hardcore players who have crunched all the numbers." Bobby Thurman interjects, "Yeah, and, we have taken all the things that sheep and wolves can do and increased them by orders of magnitude until they are, like, Super Heroes!"

Secondhand Lands is scheduled to launch this summer. The game will be free to download and play. Some features and items such as PvP participation, complete character respecs, and advanced appearance customization packages will be offered through micro-payments.

If you're a sheep, then you should start by talking to Little BoPeep. If you're a wolf, then talk to Little Red Riding Hood. They will server as your quest guides for the starter village. Right click on the entity you wish to talk with.
