Meet Libby from Mad World and get ready for some horrific lore

Mad World characters Libby




Jandisoft has revealed a piece of lore from Libby, one of the first characters that you'll get to meet in Mad World, the upcoming horror MMORPG. Brace yourselves, as things are going to get nasty.

In fact, this excerpt somewhat reminds me of the classic RPG PlaneScape Torment, and I can't shake the similarities between the settings as well. Obviously, the gameplay couldn't be any more different between the two games, but I like how Mad World's universe also feels dark, nasty and unpleasant.




And now, meet Libby, an enigmatic vile being – but one with good intentions? We'll have to play Mad World to find out.

Mad World characters Libby

“You open your eyes, and find yourself in Graveyard.
You feel pain, and remember nothing.

Libby thought you were one of the corpses. She runs away as soon as she sees you're alive. Corpse Carrier Victor tells you she took your ring which is the only clue to finding your past.

Following the trace of Libby, you stumbled upon a place called Dark Camp. Everyone is hostile, and having lost all your memories makes it even harder to fit in. Everyone seems to be against you, and your only clue/lead is Libby.

After her mother passed away, she's been damaging corpses so that their skins (as well as hers) won't be peeled off by Body Collector like he did to her mom. It has become her obsession.

As fate would have it, Libby is taken by Body Collector's soldiers. You make your way to Body Collector, hoping to save Libby before it's too late….”

Closed alpha registrations for Mad World's April test – and the first one ever – are open, so don't forget to sign up if you like the grim style of this cross-platform MMORPG.
