Lord of Ultima

Just today I discovered Lord of Ultima, a web browser based game. Besides the fact that it has really nothing to do with the original Ultima game series (other than it’s namesake), but it’s still kind of a neat game concept. It plays a bit like a simplified version of Age of Empires with players building cities across a large singular continent (I can see this becoming a problem in the future) and fighting with one another or creating alliances. What surprises me is that it doesn’t seem to use Adobe Flash or require any kind of proprietary plug-ins, it just seems to be some kind of glorified JavaScript/Ajax application. This might not be a new an all new Ultima role-playing game, but it could be a really cool game in itself.

Update: The game was discontinued shortly after I wrote this.
