Salem is a Java based free-to-play MMORPG, subtitled the Crafting MMO, currently under development. The game is set in a fantastic 17th century New England featuring witchcraft and Lovecraftian creatures. This world is persistent and mutable, meaning player characters are able to make permanent changes to it by destroying and building landscape and houses etc. Gameplay in Salem is focused on all manner of crafting (farming, building, invention and so forth) and developing required character skills for doing so. It also features free-for-all PvP combat with the possibility to permanently kill player characters.[1][2]
