Welcome to Popmundo

Popmundo is an online role-playing game and community where the players strive for fame in a virtual music industry.

You start the game as a complete nobody with nothing but your hopes and dreams. You can practice your music, play a few gigs, and begin to build a fanbase. Play your cards right and you'll soon be touring the world, cutting chart-topping records, and leaving a wake of tantalizing scandals behind you!

The game is played in real time and the game keeps on going even when you're not logged in. Success in the game is determined by careful strategy and good timing, not by constant online presence. It's perfectly possible to be successful in the game by logging in a couple of times a week to check up on things.

Popmundo is free of charge and no downloads are necessary to play it. If you can read this you're good to go.

The goal of the change is to make the outcome of these important shows more predictable in the eyes of the players. We promise you won't notice anything different so you can climb back up on your chair now, but for the sake of transparency we're still telling you about it.

Christmas is approaching at breakneck speed up here in the north and while we're still busy working on the game we can't help but feeling a little stressed out about all the things we need to prepare IRL for the holidays. If you don't plan these things properly it's a fair chance the most wonderful time of the year turns into the most stressful time of the year. Unless you're like the Grinch, or a certain grumpy old developer, then it's all just hogwash anyhow!
