Those who love Michael Jackson and his music have a new venue to celebrate his life and his work. The Michael Jackson MMORPG, or massively multiplayer online role playing game, is due out late next year and goes through all the works of Michael Jackson and is being created by SEEE Virtual Worlds. The title of the free MMORPG is Planet Michael: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Online Game. This game is unlike the versions that are coming out around the same time by Ubisoft for the Xbox 360 and the Playstation which has been put on hold until after the holidays.
Planet Michael is a free MMORPG that begins in a virtual world where the gamer goes through continents that are reflective of Jackson’s career and music. The player has to work collaboratively to compete at in game challenges in order to move forward. They can play as many different people in many different professions and they can earn virtual money throughout the game. This money can be used to purchase in game products and can be saved for larger purchases further in the game. There are also some of the charities and ecological issues that Jackson was involved in that are in the game too.
Because of Michael Jackson’s revolutionary take on everything he did in life including the innovations he brought to fashion and dance, the players may have the choice of clothing as hinted by the game creators. Other aspects of his non-musical public life are also included. Do not expect to see any of his children or anything about his personal life in this game as it only caters to those aspects that were widely known. It seems as though the creators have kept the tenet of secrecy by not including anything private at all.
This is huge news for the fans of Michael Jackson who are not ready to let him go in memory and who love his music and want to have the opportunity to share in his life’s works again. His death was untimely and it could be wondered if he had not passed if any video games based on his career or life would have ever been dreamed of. With the privacy that he preferred in his life, it is highly unlikely that the gaming community would ever have the chance to play a free MMORPG based on his career.
