Popmundo is an online roleplaying game and community where the players strive for fame in a virtual music industry. The game is played in real time and the game keeps on going even when you're not logged on. Popmundo is not a traditional video game with animated graphics and sound. It's more of a imaginative management game and playful community where you log on a couple of times a week to work on your career.
You start the game as a complete nobody with nothing but your hopes and dreams. You can practice your music, play a few gigs, and begin to build a fanbase. Play your cards right and you'll soon be touring the world, cutting chart-topping records, and leaving a wake of tantalizing scandals behind you!
But not everyone is cut out to be a major rockstar. Perhaps a career in business, politics, medicine, or even crime is more up your alley? Maybe you just want to settle down with that special someone, have a few kids, and play house. Popmundo offers plenty of alternative life styles for those who are interested.
You never play against the computer. All characters you encounter in the game are played by real people across the globe.
Recommend for 16+ players
Don't let the cartoony style fool you. We recommend this game for players who are 16 years or older. We base this recommendation on three important things:
Game Complexity & Design
Popmundo is a text based game. A successful player is required to read and understand large portions of text to be able to form his or her own personal game strategy. It's also a game in which real time must pass in order for specific events to happen. In many ways, the game is designed for the intelligent and patient strategist.
Popmundo is filled with a lot of entertaining content which might be considered unsuitable for some. Sex, drugs, rock'n'roll, crime, politics, foul language, violence, and scantily-clad members of the opposite sex, etc. The game treats all this content in a non-judgmental and humorous manner as part of a fictional world. It's not meant to comment upon, be influenced by, or reflect the real world in any way. This game is therefore unsuitable for players who experience problems separating fact from fiction.
The players of Popmundo come from all corners of our wonderful world. All players must treat each other with respect and never forget that in real life, people everywhere think differently regarding a great number of things. Considering the delicate subject matter found in some areas of the game, insensitive players of an intolerant nature have no place in Popmundo.
Popomundo Tips and Hints
1. First and foremost, "Popomundo Help" section of the game answers a lot of questions that people have, and ask others on daily basis. You can find it under Community menu item. While yes, it isn't exactly complete and updated often, it still is a great resource.
