Vendetta Online – Homegrown Space Age MMORPG

| linux | gaming |

update 6/11/2024: this is a post from a blog that I contributed to in 2011 called TechHacking, it shut down eventually but I was happy to be able to find some of my work through the internet archive.

Vendetta Online is an awesome space age Massive Multiplayer Online RPG (MMORPG) that works on Mac, Windows, and Linux. I discovered it because it is one of the few, if any, MMORPG’s that runs natively in Linux.

You pick a nation to represent, go through some training, and then you are free to explore the galaxy as the pilot of your own space ship. You complete missions, join guilds, mine for various minerals, and make upgrades to your ship in a typical RPG fashion.

The thing that is fascinating about this game is that it has been completely developed from scratch by a team of four people, that is right, FOUR people. You would never be able to tell because it is a very well polished, beautiful, and enjoyable game that looks and feels like it was created on a million dollar budget by a huge development team.

I suppose I am personally a little biased because it is just exciting that such a high quality game runs in Linux without a hitch, but honestly, it is a joy to play and if you are fan of MMORPGs and looking for something new to play, you owe it to yourself to check out this hidden gem.

Vendetta Online runs in Linux, Mac, and Windows. It is available now for download. The game is FREE to download, and the subscriptions start at $9.99/month. There is also a 30-day risk-free trial. Check it out today.
