Twenty Years Later, A Furry MMO Fights To Stay Alive

At Furcadia’s September town meeting, a hundred humanoid animals lounged on purple pillows in a lush, 32-bit meadow.

Remembering The Brutality Of Meridian 59, 20 Years On

Before the recent wave of excitement around new virtual reality technology convinced everyone that the future was inside of a headset, people longing to escape the constraints of their everyday lives invested their hopes and dreams in ugly looking worlds housed on distant computer servers.
