Fans of community simulation games will want to check out Palia (pronounced pay-lee-uh), a new MMO currently in development by Singularity 6 to feature a high fantasy world with elements of open world adventure games.
Here are some of the most asked questions about Palia.
What Type of Game Is Palia?
Palia is a cozy MMO (massively multiplayer online) game set in an open world with an enriching story, characters to meet, and friends to make. Imagine a community simulation game set in a high fantasy world where you can quest, craft, make a home for yourself, and build a neighborhood with friends.
Can You Play Palia Solo?
Yes, you can play Palia solo, single player at your own pace. You can also team up with other players or friends in the game too.
Above all, the social and cooperative multiplayer playstyles of Palia will provide a real sense of community and belonging. We believe Palia is good solo, but better together.Palia Official Website

Will Palia Be Free To Play?
Yes, and Singularity 6 has been transparent in sharing their mission on the monetization aspect of the game. Palia will make money from cosmetic items, like clothing and costumes. Palia will not monetize items you earn from gameplay and you won’t need to buy loot boxes or get content through a rotating store, or be overly pressured by fear of missing out (FOMO).
