"Only five more sheep and my marble wall is complete!" - Gonzo logic

Free-To-Play Oldschool Sandbox MMORPG

I've always loved 2D old-school games like Zelda And online games like Ultima Online.
But wouldn't it be interesting if both were combined?

And if you could also build your very own world into the persistent MMO world, so that everyone
could see and visit it without changing the application or server?

If you could slay tough enemies in real-time, gather loot and resources and then calmly build your house afterwards?

If the house could also be a rocket base, because you could upload own graphics and sounds into the live online game?

And wouldn't it be cool, if you could then place triggers and NPCs on your property and
create whole stories and quests that other players could play?

No?! Darn!

Ah, who cares.
Play Gardens of Gonzo anyway! Come on, it's free.

Visit the official homepage.

Here is a guide on how to get started.

Also, if you want in-game news or development updates asap, follow me on twitter @GardensOfGonzo!

The game is also on GameJolt!

For press info and material, feel free to use the presskit.

The game is currently in pre-alpha state, but well playable.
Feedback and suggestions are always more than welcome.

See you on Noob Island!

If it didn't become clear to this point:
You can not only slay enemies in this game. You can also build!

If it’s a house or a cave, a swamp or a forest – or something completely different. Feel free to create something crazy. Outshine your neighbours!

    • You can now teleport in your own worlds. Just open the map und left click where you want to go.
    • Jump Attack skill that increases the jump attack timeframe and damage multiplier.
  • Changes:
    • Slightly rebalanced all melee weapons.

    • Reworked ranged weapons to make them more useful in actual combat.

  • Bugfixes:
    • Fixed a small graphical bug with green container window outlines when worlds are smaller than the game window.
    • Fixed a graphical bug that occurred when graphics with see-through parts were used as tiles.
    • Fixed another small textbox issue.
    • Slightly increased tile rendering speed.

Some options in the content creator are not accessible yet, like creating your own char body or moving/removing/modifying resources. Those features will come soon.
Note: You can create your own animations right away. If you want to upload your own graphics and sounds you have to accept the Resource Upload Agreement in-game. Read it carefully and stick to it.

why am im getting serious lag now? my game disconnected from the server and since ive had lag which isnt allowing me to do anything really..

Hate how when I find a game that looks like it would be fun and not need 100GB of RAM to play, it turns out I have to either buy it, or my computer doesn't have the hardware to play it.
This time, it's the latter. =/

Well, Gonzo doesn't need 100GB of RAM and is free, but it does need a graphics adapter that supports at least OpenGL 3.0. :)

That's the problem.
I assume there is no way/too much effort to make it backwards compatible.. =/
Oh well, still being tracked.

You're right. Unfortunately, at this moment in development, it would be too much effort.

*sniff* Oh well, I can watch videos on it and tell my friends to download it >:D

I've played a bit, and I like it a lot even in this pre-alpha stage. I think this game has a lot of potential to be really awesome. I would offer my help but I don't really have anything to offer for a game like this. Keep up the good work, my new goal, after single handedly defeating the swamp troll, is to get on that leader board.

More and more features will be implemented over the time. 'Awesome' is my goal for Gonzo and I will do my best to reach it. Thanks for sharing your opinion!
