Evony is a persistent-world MMO for Mac playable for free in a browser window. The game can be described as an empire building type game combining some elements from the RPG and RTS genres. The player begins as the mayor of a small town and must manage the available resources in order to build up the town over time into a powerful city with a formidable army. This army can then be used in combat against other players cities and non-player enemies. The resources used in Evony are Gold, Lumber, Stone, Iron and Food, and through maximizing the gathering of each of these resources the player can become extremely powerful and wealthy.
There is also a wide range of in-game items available for direct purchase with real money on the game’s website and most of these items allow the player to advance more rapidly than is possible without them. While this does create a slight advantage to those who spend real money on the game, it doesn’t really unbalance the gameplay too much as the persistent nature of this particular MMO for Mac balances things back out in the end. Whether you pay for items or just stick to the free game Evony has much to offer everyone in the way of gameplay.
In the exciting and quite beautiful world of Evony, anyone can become a hero. Build your town up and dominate all would-be enemies in real-time combat. It is quite difficult to sum up the deep and varied aspects of a game such as Evony in a few worlds, and this behemoth of an MMO for Mac should really be played to get a real feel for it. This works out quite well though; due to the fact that Evony is completely free to play, there is no reason not to try it out.
