When most gamers think about massively multiplayer online games, a
number of examples probably come to mind. However, most of the
individual titles on the gamer’s list probably
doesn’t include a
sports-based MMOG. While sports MMOGs have been discussed for a number
of years, few titles have really made an impact on the global
marketplace. But that may all change in the near future.
A new development company known as Interzone has unveiled its first
product, which happens to be a soccer MMOG. Dubbed Interzone Futebol,
the company is actually hoping to release their introductory game in
Brazil first, with subsequent releases in the other major world
territories. To many it sounds like a risky venture, but one that just
may pay off. Ten Ton Hammer’s Cody
“Micajah” Bye had a recent chat with
Jeff Lyndon about the upcoming soccer-based MMOG and the future of the
company known as Interzone.
Ton Hammer: As a gamer, how should we compare Interzone Futebol to
other MMOGs that are on the market? Does it play like a sports game, a
sports-based MMORPG, or somewhere in the middle?
Lyndon: The benefit of games like this

somebody you’re not. In that sense it is like other online
can be a Professional Futebol player in Interzone Futebol, just like in
other games you can be an axe-wielding dwarf or a Princess of Mars.
Some people might even argue that all online multiplayer games are a
