About Salem
Set in a fantastical New England, Salem offers free form Massively Multiplayer gameplay in a persistent, ever-changing, online world. Players take the roles of intrepid colonists from the Old World seeking to make lives for themselves in the New. The colonists are able to use a unique crafting, farming and building system inspired by 17th century alchemy.

Although Salem takes place in a light-hearted gothic setting with a charming and cute art-style, there is also open Player-versus-Player combat complete with permadeath and inheritance. Players will also experience a mysterious darker side to the world with creatures based off actual colonist folklore like Squonks, Hidebehinds and of course witches in an open sand box world.

Features:

* Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game
* Persistent and mutable world
* Crafting, farming and building
* Open PvP combat with permanent death
* Free-to-play
