Ten years ago Entropia Universe, which was known at the time as Project-Entropia, bravely went Gold. Back in those days, Mark Zuckerberg was tinkering with Facemash, World of Warcraft was still 22 Months away from Launch, Second life was still 5 months away from official launch and would not add currency until the end of 2003 and Gamers in general still embraced the idea of paying subscription fees and had a big problem with Micro Transaction Economies.
Way ahead of the curve, Entropia Universe bravely stepped out with full blown MMO gameplay built around the brilliant concept of Real Cash virtual Goods harvesting, manufacturing and trading. A concept designed to Empower the Gamer by giving a real cash value to the time spent engaged in playing online.
Entropia was (still is) an important new frontier land, a Wild cyber West where heroes live and die by the gun (or their wits). Hundreds of thousands came from all over the globe seeking Virtual Fame and Fortune, The first decade saw glorious days, heroes names burst across the virtual night sky like shooting stars, great discoveries were made, priceless treasures traded for record breaking sums, Heroes came and left, some even died leaving traces of their lives in the Virtual Soil, many, many Quit when times were hard.
A few from the earliest days held fast to the virtual dream and have never let go, today their names Beloved or Notorious, resonate with the weight of the Historical first days of a new promised land. Many who joined after the first wave can claim their Avatars are older than their flesh and blood children.
Fortunes have been made and lives changed even during the infancy of Entropia Universe, the whole world has marveled at some of Entropia Universe’s record breaking landmarks, but the world has largely shied away from the hardship and challenges faced with exploiting the extraordinary opportunities of Entropia Universes Rich and Dazzling landscapes, preferring the relative comfort and safety of farming their time away on Facebook or Hacking and slashing their avatars into retirement and anonymity in World of Warcaft.
Despite the World, Despite changing technologies, despite the naivete of the press who clamor around Fads.. Entropia has Survived, evolved and expanded like a Good Universe is expected to do, as its DNA prescribes. Despite everything, Entropia Universe has against all odds reached a very important milestone and the heart of the Universe beats with the Loud banging Dreams of Virtual pioneers from around the world, many of whom have logged thousands upon thousand of hours laboring and striving for greatness, may of whom have tasted the sweet fruit of their labor. many of whom continue to create the virtual human infrastructure that holds the Universe together, that sustains it through its darkest hours and growing pains.
if You were to look at the evolution of Entropia Universe with a time lapse camera then you could see that there is a momentum behind it, that the events of tomorrow were already set in motion yesterday, you would see that it will continue to grow and evolve, The blood of the Universe is oxygenated with Human Dreams and it is capable of Magic, it has a power of it’s own, that is greater than its individual creators, it has the power to inspire, touch, choose and nurture future heroes who may becomes the champions of the future.
It has the power to bring people together in what may appear at first chance meetings, but what will sometime in the future feel like fateful meetings. Some soothsayer types would like to believe it may even have the power to Save the World, to save Humanity.
