There's a rather ambitious independent CRPG in the words from Prairie Games, showing a few screenshots of Minions of Mirth, a massively single player CRPG. Here's the list of features ripped from there:

  • Massively Single Player gameplay!!!
  • 15 character careers from 3 character archetypes. Multiclass characters with primary, secondary, and tertiary class
  • 8 playable character races
  • 16 incredible zones to explore
  • A persistent world where your actions have lasting effects
  • Over 10,000 frames of rendered game graphics!!!
  • Alignment system for playing either a good or evil character ...
  • Epic battles rage across the land... you can fight for either side and the outcome of the battle can affect quests, etc
  • Immersive first person gameplay!
  • Slick game GUI that never gets in your way
  • Quest system supporting multiple quest and reward items as well as triggered events
  • Bounty system dynamically generates bounties for you to hunt ... bounty rewards can be money and items!
  • Vendors across the land selling many assorted goodies
  • Track monsters from great distances
  • Melee and ranged combat
  • Vast outdoors (oceans, mountains, jungle, forests), sprawling dungeons, and zones that mix the two!
  • Various modes of transport including boats and airships.
  • Full blown weather system with climates, seasons, cloud cover and varying precipitation!
  • Day and night cycles, with monster spawns and world events tied to time of day. Beautiful star gazing at night!
  • Many types of flora and fauna
  • Players have many wearable inventory slots, quick slots, carry slots, and a vault to store game items
  • Phat Lewt! Robust game items with stats, spell effects, procs, special flags like artifact/indestructible,
    usage requirements/recommendations, and a nifty bonus/penalty system...
  • Game items may also have quality associated with them from Crappy, Shoddy, Normal, Superior, Exceptional.
  • Hundreds of spells... including combat, pet/monster/item summoning, etc .. spell effects include levitation, blindness, paralysis, charming, etc
  • Level cap of 100 with over 80 character skills!
  • Full engine + game source code available for modding
  • Compatible with Windows + MacOSX
  • Cooperative (and PVP) multiplayer coming in 2005

There's also an 8 minute video in Quicktime format that's 60MB. Of course, they offer a smaller version of the same video for the bandwidth challenged.

Sounds like a lot of work, doesn't it?
