eGenesis Brings Online Gambling to Social Gaming

The influence that multi user games has had on the internet is enormous and important. Early gamers developed the graphic interfaces needed to interact with other cyber space cadets resulting in advancements in the creative and practical uses for the web. Originally these games were texts similar to what is going on today with millions of people texting one another around the globe.

Pittsburgh based indie developer of MMOG’s eGenesis recently announced it has a new product that is the first MMORPG that’s (massively multiplayer role playing online game) to be applied to real money online betting. The company which created a sometimes controversial game called A Tale in the Desert, a social MMORPG which does not include combat. Instead, a variety of social activities provide for the basis of most interaction in the game. The game's main focuses are building, community, research and personal or group challenges called "Tests".

The new game Dragon's Tale brings "a creative and intensely social experience to online gambling." Explaining the new experience with online betting for real money Lead designer Andrew Tepper spoke, "The first thing that stuck me about online gambling today is that it's a pretty lonely experience, typically one player in a web browser, watching a 2D slot machine. I've taken what I've learned in the last 15 years building MMORPGs and for the first time applied that to gambling. I've created an intensely social world where players can explore the game world together, share techniques, and rely on each other as they level up by completing gambling quests."

"Furthermore, every game in Dragon's Tale is novel, and is designed for a 3D environment: You can tip cows, hunt for Dragon's Eggs, catch fish, run monkeys through mazes, feed ducks. There are 60 different games so far, with new ones being added all the time, and every one of them is a new take on gambling. About half the games are luck-based and half are skill-based."
