Immerse yourself in ancient Singapore in a new online game

No Comments

In what is probably the first of its kind for the region, Singapore has just launched a new online role-playing game called the World of Temasek, which lets players immerse themselves into 14th century Singapore. The game is free to play (registration needed) and is supposed to be historically accurate. I’ve signed up for an account, but haven’t had the chance to give it a spin yet – hopefully I can write a review later.
