A mysterious fellow identifying himself only as "Viktor" writes in with word that an alpha version of his WebGL first-person RPG Moonshades is now available and free to play online.
Inspired by Eye of the Beholder, Lands of Lore, and the Ultima series, Moonshades features eight playable classes, a crafting system, and thousands of upgradable items. Wizardry fans should also find a lot to like here -- it looks quite promising! The game is fully playable without registration, though if you want to save your progress, you'll have to sign up for a free account.
Viktor warns that loading may be somewhat slow due to server load, but notes that this should be a temporary problem. Future updates will add a multiplayer component, among other features.
