What is an MMORPG?
MMORPG is an abbreviation. It means Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game. In games as such thousands of players can be simultaneously involved in the action. A unique feature of Perpetuum is that while most other MMORPGs run multiple parallel servers, we have only one persistent, single universe.
In the not-too-distant future, a strange anomaly opens the gates of the universe for humans. With this new technology, energy, information and atomic size objects can be transported to anywhere in space.
The most intriguing of all new discoveries is an Earth-like planet, where humanity discovers a new source of energy, vital to its unbroken advancement. However, this planet is inhabited by a synthetic, robot-like life form. Their technology and resources are the goal of humanity's new conquest.
Players may take part in various areas of the project. They may fight on the front lines for new territories, develop the already established infrastructure, trade goods or services, or even set their own goals and set up their own corporations.
Every player is part of one server, one scene, one storyline.
