We haven’t heard much about the intriguing sandbox sci-fi MMO Origins of Malu recently, but visitors to PAX Prime will do more than hear about the game — they’ll get a chance to play it.
Burning Dog Media will be bringing a playable mini-game, Capture the Chochobi, to their shared booth with Alienware next month at PAX Prime. The game pits two teams of eight against each other in the attempt to capture “a chicken-like creature that is scared of everything” and bring it back to their base. It sounds like capture-the-flag with a living flag.
Games will also be streamed over the Internet, so even if you can’t make it to the convention, you can check out the action from your home. Capture the Chocobi is said to be just a warm-up for the 300-person battleground — which includes permadeath options — that will launch with the game.
But will we be able to craft chocobi steaks?
