Awakened Nostalgia - EverQuest Relived

Updated Wed, Apr 07, 2010 by B. de la Durantaye

Ever wanted to go back to your glory days? Going back to EverQuest of 1999 is just what an independent team has done with their Project. Explore the lure of reliving days gone by and what made EverQuest a legend. We talk to the group of nostalgia seekers as well as John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment, to find out what can drive thousands of people to play a game for 11 years and still want more.
Project 1999 is an attempt to recreate the original launch of EverQuest. We use the EverQuest Titanium client with the open source work of the EQEmulator community, and players will be able to relive their original experience." And that's exactly what they've done. This is Classic EverQuest, without any expansions, with all of the old systems and mechanics in place. For all intents and purposes, this IS EverQuest as it was in 1999.
