EVE Online is one of those games I wish I had time to play, but I’ve sort of reached a point in my life where I just don’t have it in me anymore to get involved in a super-complex PC MMORPG. Well, at GDC we ran into the guys from Blackjack Studio, who are working pretty hard on the idea of bringing something like EVE Online to mobile. Right now the game is in what they’re calling a “pre-alpha," but if you look at the following brief gameplay trailers, it looks pretty cool:
Being so early, it’s going to be quite a while before we see something more, but I love the dream of something as huge as EVE Online that I can carry in my pocket and play in my spare time. If nothing else, the idea of playing a mobile MMORPG with a true to scale massive space universe sounds really awesome. If you’re on the same page, be sure to add this one to your watch list to get updates throughout its development.
