Time of Defiance was a Massively multiplayer online real-time strategy (MMORTS), featuring floating islands on a planet called Nespanona. Players capture and extract resources from these floating islands. Because the game runs in real-time, the game world continues to alter when players are logged out. All in-game enemies consist of other players, who must be repelled by force or prevented from attacking through diplomatic intervention. It was made free to play on August 19, 2009 and was closed down on July 28, 2010.
Famous quotes containing the words time of, defiance and/or time:
“Sinclair Lewis is the perfect example of the false sense of time of the newspaper world.... [ellipsis in source] He was always dominated by an artificial time when he wrote Main Street.... He did not create actual human beings at any time. That is what makes it newspaper. Sinclair Lewis is the typical newspaperman and everything he says is newspaper. The difference between a thinker and a newspaperman is that a thinker enters right into things, a newspaperman is superficial.”
—Gertrude Stein (18741946)
“Logic, reason, disease, and the menace of death, these things meant nothing at all to us. We were committed to other values by which the poet has always lived in defiance of all that society demanded of him.”
—Kay Boyle (19031993)
“The conqueror at least; who, ere Time renders
His last award, will have the long grass grow
Above his burnt-out brain and sapless cinders.
If I might augur, I should rate but low
Their chances: they are too numerous, like the thirty
Mock tyrants, when Romes annals waxd but dirty.”
—George Gordon Noel Byron (17881824)
