Developer: Quest Online
Release Date: April 28, 2010 (free-to-play: 2010)
Free MMO Trial
Alganon is a fantasy-based MMORPG that allows thousands of people to play together in a virtual world that features a rich history dominated by commanding deities, powerful weapons and armor, deadly magic, epic quests, ancient places to discover, the utilization of detailed tradeskills, and more. Designed from scratch and based in a uniquely created world, the initial goal in designing Alganon is to provide "Simple Gameplay with Unlimited Growth in a massive world of immersion and interaction".
Part of achieving this goal is to create a game that is easy for anyone to play, but also to build the game in so that even the most skilled and hardcore gamer has the potential to grow beyond their expectations. A world where the casual and hardcore gamer alike can adventure, grow, and share their accomplishments with other players.
For more than three years, our development team at Quest Online has pushed forward with the next online game you will play. We have designed everything from the ground up, tailored to feedback from the community about what you want to see in your next MMO. It is difficult to select new games worthy of our time with so many prominent MMOs on the market. We have sculpted Alganon to be this game. You do not have to dedicate all of your time to Alganon. We want to show you what Alganon is all about.
