Massive Multiplayer Economies

January 5, 2006
I’m currently investigating online massively multiplayer gaming economies for some consulting work I’m currently doing and stumbled onto this great blog by Mark Wallace called, Walkerings. The Blog focuses on conversations around MMOs.
 
Mark wrote an article for an online mag called The Escapist (A visual feast I must say!). Wallace’s article is on how the economies of MMO’s are changing and discusses a recent event on Eve-Online whereby a shift is occurring to the trust/value system of virtual economies versus the old world economy fall back that many of these games fell into in the past.
 
It’s an interesting observation and is a very important aspect in designing these virtual economy systems, what ever form they may take.
