There is an interesting MMOish indie game in development at the moment called Love. It's a one man development with an simple but effective visual style (its rawness reminds me of Darwinia). The gameplay looks to be a simple set also. Here's a trailer showing off the graphics engine, and here's an interview with the creator of the game You can build you own simple structures and form simple cities for storing objects you collect as you explore the world. Most world objects can then be controlled using keywords sent over the 255 available 'Radio' channels in the game You can link these systems together to form complex interacting systems, which are really the product of your mechanical and logical skills. The interesting part is that all channels can be listened to by everyone, so if you can figure out someones language, for controlling their security systems for instance, then you can sneak into their city. There should be some very nice emergent systems from this simple toolbox.
