Hey all, I was going to make this a blog post but then I thought that might be a bit over the top so I will just add it as an addition to the next proper blog post. Basically as of right now our facebook group has 389 'likes' which is cool but it means that only 388 of you (besides myself) have a regular feed of the stuff I put up on there, and on Twitter 738. This is not enough! I'd love to blog everything on the dev blog (as that goes to the forum, twitter, facebook and the launcher) however that would get a bit spammy. What we do instead is we start discussions, ask little questions, put up teasers and some other cool stuff on twitter and facebook. It's a great way for you to be able to engage with us, ask us questions, and see some of what we are up to. Many of the individual team members are on Twitter too and they would love to hear from you! What I would love to see is more players following us on Twitter and Facebook! So, as a special reward... I will see to it that once we hit 1,000 facebook likes, a random player who has liked this forum post will recieve a mega-rare set of tools (in-game of course) made from silver. These are not craft-able by players, although they act just like normal tools. NOTE: The old competition was one of our facebook followers but it was pointed out that we can not do this, so instead the winner will be selected from someone who has liked this forum post, once we hit 1,000 facebook 'likes'. Remember: You will only win if the Facebook page is liked or our twitter account followed, so no sneaky business!
I want to start by saying that I've been away from the game for roughly two years now, so if something like this has been mentioned I apologize, but I saw nothing when doing a cursory search of the forums. Anywho, I was perusing Amazon.com as I was considering pre-purchasing another game and I noticed they had a Free-to-Play games section. Curious, I checked it out only to discover that games that many of you may be familiar with already were there like Flyff, Rappelz, and Runescape to name only a few. So it occured to me, if they can do it, why not Wurm? Now it seems that these games will offer promotions through Amazon, like special ingame items or upgrades for purchase. I think Wurm would be able to do something like this without becoming a micro-transaction game that rewards players who pay more by simply allowing gold to be purchased through Amazon or to sell old Christmas gift convenience items (Sculpting Wand comes to mind). Like I said, this was an idea I had while browsing the site and I can't attest to what Amazon would get from transactions through its site or basically any financial figures, but if the numbers are reasonable, it seems like a good possibility to draw some attention to a very niche game.
