Fantasy University, a unique and humorous social massive multiplayer game by gaming industry veterans Simutronics, is looking to breathe freshness into the MMOG space when it debuts in July on Facebook. Its mission: To produce Class-A Adventurers. Armed with an arsenal of pop-culture references and artistic imagination, the University aims to combine the elements of combat, exploration, puzzle solving and intellectual humor to deliver a truly adventurous education.
Students must first be accepted into the Fantasy University after they apply. Admitted students will then embark on a journey instilled with grown-up humor dialogue, fantasy art and exuberant pop culture references. Once they enroll, students can begin designing their character, choosing a character class (Dodgebrawler, Emomancer, Slackninja, Cheermonger or Mathemagician), socializing and joining guilds, gathering equipment as well as crafting items.
“We’re delighted, simply delighted!” said Thaddeus Lackpants VIII, a professor at the school, at the press conference held earlier today, adding, “The entire faculty and I are committed to our students receiving the finest Adventuring Education that delicious government funding can provide!”
The Elanthian Education Department of Elanthia, a real place, has made a bold move to support the University with a generous yet controversial bailout. The University, which was on the verge of financial disaster, hopes to live up to its new-found financial stability by continuing to produce sought-after alumni like Dodgebrawler extraordinaire Randy McDandy who is well known for his display of valor against the feared Badgerdragon before succumbing to his might.
