    There are a lot of Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games out there right now. A lot of them are free and driven by advertising and in-game money. Wakfu is grid-like, turn-based free MMORPG, but has native support for Linux.

    There is a lot more than your standard RPG...
    Select from 15 classes consisting of ranged, melee, steam-punk, mage-like and much much more.
    Utilize many abilities and skill attributes to battle multiple minions. Follow quests or just explore the land. Use an interesting take on Alchemy by harvesting animals and plants, then planting more. Join up with friends or play solo and level up your characters abilities and skills.
    The possibilities are endless...

    Follow my step-by-step guide on installing, configuring and optimizing Wakfu in Linux.

    Wakfu is a fairly low quality 2D game and should run on most laptops

    Rule of Thumb:
    Higher settings
    = More detail, lower frame rates
    Lower settings = Less detail, higher frame rates

    Conclusion:
    Wakfu ran perfectly on my GeForce 550 Ti and I was very impressed with all the animation, effects and visuals. I had to keep selecting "Fullscreen" in the Options each time I launched. After a few times the game remembered this setting.
    I even tested it on my Chromebook with ChrUbuntu and an Intel HD 2000 video chip.
    Wakfu ran fine, except the fonts were too small to read.

    I really love the art direction of Wakfu, kinda bothers me that I couldn't get my account activated due to some bug in the past.

    Really? Try it again. Its a pretty fun game. The fighting is a bit slow, but that is how turn-based fighting is...

    Just installed it and letting it update. I like turn-based combat so I'll be fine in that area.

    Great, I really like the details in fighting, leveling, sowing & seeding. The put a lot of work in this game. My daughter likes it as well. She's 6 years old, so Wakfu is great for all ages.
