5 Minute MMORPG is a project by the Copenhagen Game Collective.

The game was originally conceived at the 2009 Nordic Game Jam, to satisfy the theme: "as long as we have each other, we'll never run out of problems." And, of course, the constraint that the game could take no longer than five minutes!

The game crashed horribly during our NGJ presentation (never try to make a networked game on no sleep...), so to redeem ourselves we decided to polish our little experiment and release it into the wilds. We hope you enjoy it!
