Featured Game

Have you ever wondered what real roleplaying looks in an MMO? A place where to leave the real world behind and to fully immerse yourself into a fantasy setting in which everybody, from sorcerer to sailor, cares about their character and acts according to it.

Imagine playing a wonderful African inspired RPG where all the interesting NPCs are... actual other players! And their quests are true emergent stories that you can be part of! Imagine skill trees, village management, craft systems and countless other features, all built so that you can create rich characters full of memories and quirks.

This is The Wagadu Chronicles - the Role-Play-first Afrofantasy MMORPG: we are bringing back the "role-play" into the MMORPG genre!
