Spiral Knights, an MMORPG released in 2011 (with closed testing in 2009), is a cooperative dungeon exploration game by Three Rings Design (devs of Puzzle Pirates). Basically, think LoZ: Four Swords. You explore the Clockworks, which is a randomly generated dungeon that fills the planet's interior, with 3 other Knights. While thousands of knights may be participating in Spiral Knights at a time, any given knight interacts directly with only a small subset of them. For example, in Haven there are typically tens of knights present; however, there are tens of independent copies of Haven being maintained simultaneously. When a knight is in the Clockworks, he interacts with only three (or fewer) other knights, as well as numerous monsters. If you want to know more, you can obviously read the Website or Wikipedia article; they word things better than I could.
You have crashed. You are stranded, but not alone.
The Spiral Knights have awoken on an alien world. Their equipment stores have been raided and their starship, The Skylark, will not recover from the crash. Now they must work together to survive on a journey that will take them to the very core of the world.
Take up your arms!
Cradle is a hostile planet teeming with all manner of alien creatures. Any hope of survival you may have rests on your ability to amass an arsenal of weapons and gear that will provide you with the right options for any environment. As a Spiral Knight you have total freedom to customize and use your arsenal however you choose!
Join your fellow knights in Haven.
Once some kind of mining outpost, Haven serves as the makeshift base camp for Spiral HQ. From within the safety of its walls, knights can find an array of goods and services offered by the locals. Everything from purchasing new weapons and gear to alchemizing powerful items from strange materials is right at your fingertips!
Explore the mysteries of the Clockworks.
Stretching deep below Haven, The Clockworks is a giant subterranean complex filled with pieces of strange worlds, dangerous creatures and fabulous treasure. Will you and your fellow knights answer its call to adventure?
Harness the power of the Arcade.
Filled with strange machinery powered by Minerals claimed from the worlds below, Haven's Arcade is used by the Spiral Knights to build their own gates that cut unique paths into the underground Clockworks. (No two gates are alike!)
Take your adventure to the Core!
Spiral HQ is picking up a strong energy reading from deep within the planet's Core. Are you brave enough to face whatever dangers might lie between you and the secrets of this mysterious new world?
