By now, everyone should know that Fantage has shut its doors permanently. Its legacy of ten years will forever be engraved into our hearts as one of our favourite childhood games. Yes, it had it’s up and downs, but upon seeing the closure of it all, we realize that it taught us many things.
Fantage closed a couple days ago, and even though I knew it was coming, an ache appears in my heart once I realize, again, that I will no longer be able to access it. However, it’s for the best: this is the best type of closure.
For those who can’t fathom not having Fantage in your lives anymore: this is for you. Several dedicated Fantage users have announced their decision to develop a private server of Fantage, open for all. Called Fantage Legacy, closed beta is designated to open for selected users sometime in the following weeks. Open beta itself will be released sometime in the following month, though an exact date hasn’t yet been revealed.
More information about this project can be found here. You can also follow @jimmyfantage and @egatnaf_mase on Instagram for more up-to-date notices.
Now, onto a game that can replace your hearts’ desires for Fantage while you await Fantage Legacy: Line Play.
If you don’t know already, Line Play is a virtual app that allows its users to communicate freely (with no chat filters that I know of), either individually or in groups, dress up, plays games and complete missions to earn gems and cash, and decorate their houses.
In this way, Line Play is much like Fantage. It is also easier to access and contains no chat restrictions. Available on both Android and iOS, its cute kawaii style rivals that of Fantage’s wardrobe-based theme.
You can add whichever friends you please, with a cap of 500 friends. You can give a “heart” to whoever you think has a nice outfit. These “hearts” add up and show on your profile, much like a way of expressing experience and style points in the game.
Line Play’s arsenal of clothing highly beats that of Fantage’s. Everything is cute and well-designed, and gatchas are updated often.
Line Play’s inventory, or “closet”, is much like Fantage’s. Everything is categorized, though the accessories aren’t separate. There is an inventory cap, but nothing you should worry about for a good while.
Of course, everyone gets their own dairy, or album, as Fantagians know it. You can post your avatar, or upload any photos you choose from your device.
The squares are much like uptown, downtown, etc., places where users come to mingle and interact. Here, you can add friends, check out fashion trends, and complete missions.
Best of luck in your journey, wherever you choose to go. And if you do decide to join Line Play, please do add me:
Just enter the code into “referral code” as you create your account, and I’ll be added immediately! (You and I both get rewards also, hehe.)
