I want to be an alien rancher. The kind of aliens that Captain Kirk always found.

While a lot of players "get" MMOGs, there are a great many people who don't "get" Entropia Universe. With its declaration of being a "virtual world" and it's use of real money to buy and sell goods, many online game players don't even consider Entropia Universe when they're looking at online games to explore. At Leipzig GC '07, Marco Behrmann sat down with Ten Ton Hammer's Cody "Micajah" Bye to try to sort out that misunderstanding and inform the public about Entropia Universe.

"Entropia Universe was designed from the ground up with game functions," Marco said. "It's important – in our point of view – to have that entertainment aspect.

We want players feeling like they are trying to carve out a new place to live, something akin to the Old West in America."
