Rubies of Eventide was a "free" to play (donation-funded) massively multiplayer online role-playing game previously published by Mnemosyne, LLC.[1] Powered by the Lithtech Jupiter engine, Rubies of Eventide is set in the medieval fantasy world of Vormis represented by a 3D world. The game launched in June 2003, shut down and restarted and after 6 years, ceased operation in August 2009.

History[edit]

CyberWarrior, Inc. launched Rubies of Eventide on 2 June 2003 as a paid service.[2][3] Citing low subscription rates, CyberWarrior announced that the game would cease operations in December, 2003[4][5] but later managed to secure additional funding for some months.[6] Later, two former CyberWarrior developers, together with the founder of the game, set up a private server to play the game with close friends and relatives, but found that some hardcore fans managed to hook themselves to their connection.[7] After leasing the game to Mnemosyne, LLC. in 2004, the mmorpg continued to operate today on a donation-based model.[8] Players were able to start and play accounts for free (with limited server space), while patrons gain priority in game access during peak usage, and certain in-game benefits.
