It appears the domain name www.lokitorrent.com has come under new ownership, or the original owners have decided to get into the web-based gaming business.
Visiting the once highly popular bit torrent site now presents you with the message:
Redirection to MyOwnInteractive.com in progress…
Torrent download links of any kind are no longer hosted on this web site. We welcome you to visit our new web-based gaming sites.
MyOwnInteractive.com contains the notice “Web-based simulators and games for the intellectuals among us. Have an idea for a simulator or web-based game you wished existed? Contact us with your idea.”
Also on the page is some hidden text that announces a web-based multiplayer game that’s due to come out in Fall 2005:
Rule your own country as a benevolent leader or a crooked tyrant
With game features such as technology advancements, military research, foreign trade, and a complete economic model, you can rule your nation any way you wish.
Open design allows you to buy out your neighbors by utilizing carefully manipulated foreign trade and fair tax rates to create a strong upper class population or simply creating a massive army and taking over your neigbors by brute force and cunning strategy.
MyOwn Nation, sporting realistic options such as United Nations membership, population classes, government types, unique taxation options, welfare, education and even genocide make this the most realistic nation simulation to date.
Look for it in Fall 2005!
Lokitorrent’s original owners succumbed to the wrath of the MPAA back in February, after fighting briefly against their orders to take down the site.
