Nether is a survival MMOFPS developed by Phosphor Game Studio and published by Nether Productions. Adventures happen in a post apocalyptical horror urban landscape where players have to find the means to get through the day. Most MMO games allow players to group up for challenging content, kill bosses and equally share the loot but this doesn’t apply to Nether. Players have the possibility to form teams but no one can be fully trusted as players can betray each other. In a world where basic things like food are scarce and weapons are a great asset anyone is a potential enemy. Trading with other players and crafting are also viable methods to acquire gear and valuable supplies. Many items can be bought from the in game store in exchange for game currency so Nether is not a pay to win game.
Nethers are AI creatures that inhabit the world, they are the primary threat. There are multiple types of monsters and each one has unique attributes and abilities, some are easily killable but stronger Nethers can be quite a challenge. One nice feature is Creature mode that allows players to change into Nethers and bring death and destruction upon human characters. Gameplay is neither PvP nor PvE, it’s a mix between both. This system creates additional challenges as players never know who their enemy really is, it might be a creature waiting behind a corner or the team mate that’s supposed to watch your back. However, there are objectives that can only be completed with the help of other players. Driving Nethers away from buildings and securing safe areas aren’t easy tasks. Scavenging is an important part of the game because gear or supplies don’t come as quest rewards. Like a true survival game, Nether MMO focuses on killing enemies, scavenging, crafting and trading as primary means to acquire equipment, weapons, materials and consumable items. Melee and ranged fire weapons as well as multiple types of explosives are available to Nether players.
Nether plays like a FPS MMO with no third person perspective. Developers felt that this style helps to create an immersive game atmosphere and the third person option could be considered cheating because it allows a larger view of the map. Dying in the world of Nether is more than unpleasant. Players lose all equipment when dying but on the other hand there are no respawn timers. There are only a handful of games that adopted such a harsh gameplay and this makes Nether a title that mostly appeals to the hardcore playerbase.
