I remember playing some online RPGs back when I first went away to college. Granted, back then, we were doing it on IRC and didn't have fancy webcams or things like that (I doubt my old computer could've taken the strain, anyway. It had enough of a time playing the various MP3s that I was downloading from Napster at the time). Of course, we were just playing "regular" tabletop RPGs, but doing so online. ViewScream is sort of the opposite. It's an RPG designed to be played with people online, all connected to one-another, but otherwise isolated. The 2nd edition is up on Kickstarter and looking for funding.
