to be honest, i’m posting about this just because i want more people to play it with.
five minute mmorpg is just that: the massively multilplayer online role-playing game experience compressed into five minute sessions, and what the game identifies as the critical elements of the mmorpg is online play, levelling up, and lag. the lag (between your input and your avatar’s performance of it) is what makes strategy in this game interesting: you’re trying to slay the other players, but because of the delay you have to make predictions about where your opponents will be a few seconds from now. everyone is acting based on their knowledge of an out-of-date game state. it’s like how the stars in the night sky are actually the positions those stars occupied ages ago when that light first started travelling towards us.
