I just found this today. I am so pleased. Are people still playing/testing it?

Work is still progressing, slow but steady. There's usually a player or two on, occasionally over a dozen. You can join Discord to chat with other players as well. viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2928

Just know that we are still in early alpha state, so while you can get on and play, it's not really at a 'sit down and progress' point.

Some testing info:

Yeah I read and I don't care. I'm just glad it's not gone forever. My husband and I still, to this day, talk about it. I would love to be a part of the group trying to bring it back even if it's just testing. This game had SO much potential and I have not found anything like diplomacy in any game ever since.

I just joined today, very happy to be able to play this game, since I never did when it was live. Looks like server down atm tho, but I *DID* get to lvl 8

I am new to the effort too. I don't know that I will play much considering the state. I started VGO in closed beta and played until it died. I was sad to see it go, and would love to see it revived, but can't imagine it will ever be what it was or should have been. I haven't really liked any MMO as much as VGO since.

Just signed up. Tried this a while back but for whatever reason I had a lot of lag. Tried again this weekend and it was amazing. So great to be back in this game. If I decided to stay I'll definitely donate.

Just started playing this weekend. Level 11 Necro on IoD. Working on crafting and diplomacy before I leave the Island. Would be great to link up with some others

I'd be up for it but won't be able to get back on until early next week as going away for weekend.

YES...there are. There are a handful that have known about this emu for a few years and they, like me, pop in and out every few months to check in. Ive been "playing" the emu for a 3 years, even though it is still under construction. A lot of stuff, especially lower zones, have quests and such. A lot of stuff, especially high level stuff is still on the list to finish.
MY ADVICE: Have fun and DONT GET SERIOUS about playing. They had to wipe all toons once for programming.
There are a number of GM commands to set your level to ANY level for adventuring, crafting, harvesting, diplomacy, MONEY, run speed, etc etc. All the gear is available (Heroic, Fabled and the Very rare stuff too. Create a toon, make it level 50, go TWINK OUT ..and then explore and have fun.
I did the Unicorn quest and verified it's working and still a pain in the butt at times. IN the Spring of 2019, you could do limited quests up to about level 30-35 in a few zones. They are re-keying everything by hand and correcting as much as possible as they go!!!
Experience is.... tripled? Very fast XP and progress in the other fields. Don't think any of the high level zones are up. I'd say abut 2/3 of each classes spells/abilities are working.
My level 50 ranger could charm level 100 6 dots...LOL made me feel like a BIG MAN beating up on the huge mobs. There is a lot of quirky stuff like that due to the construction and testing.
They have made remarkable progress in eliminating those awful zone crashes as well as falling through space to your death that plagued the game back in 2007+.

I play:
Tigersnack- Disc
Brightshadow- Ranger
Oakendell-Druid
Starshadow- Bard
Dezlin- a Dark Elf Paladin ...LOL...the Dark ones cant stand me and most of the good guys cant stand me. =)

and a few other minor toons
Heck I even have a GUILD on the server "Telon on the Rise" ...just for testing and messing around.
