Welcome to the Other-Life Wiki[edit | edit source]
This is the Unofficial Other-Life Wiki for the community driven fantasy MMORPG Other-Life .
Anyone familiar with games such as Everquest, Runescape or even Eternal Lands will feel pretty much at home, however, Other-Life separates itself with a more relaxed atmosphere and unique community orientated approach. Unlike other games, players are actively consulted on major changes and even get the opportunity to put forward, vote, and run polls on their own development proposals.
Please feel free to browse the wiki, comment on material you found useful, add photos, videos and new articles for discoveries in game.
Whilst Other-Life is still in fairly heavy development and testing, it's fully playable. It's also fully free to play and, whilst there is a shop from which you can buy cosmetic and convenience items, all critical content is accessible without payment.
The Other-Life community is welcoming to new players of all ages and languages. You'll find the game's developer ('Learner') is regularly in-game to welcome new players, answer queries, and introduce them to his own ideas and goals. Be sure to look out for ogre's, trolls, cyclops, gargoyles, goblins, revoltingly huge spiders and the awesome Lt General Foo Foo!
However, there's more to do in Other-Life that just die (frequently) at the teeth, claws and poison glands of just about every creature you never wanted to meet in a dark alley, you'll get to haggle and trade on the market channel; harvest all manner of things, till your virtual fingers bleed; learn to make all manner of potions, tools, clothes, armor and (of course) weapons; then, just when you thought it was safe to be out in the open, learn what its like to flee screaming from the dubious delights of PKer's.
Although the server code for Other-Life is currently closed source, the client code is freely available under a modified GPL license and compiles under Linux, Mac and Windows. The client is written in C and is under continual development by the community, something that makes the game particularly ideal for those who like to create modifications and help out with coding and development.
It is available for Windows, Linux, Mac and *BSD.
