Demonstration games such as this usually aren’t much fun and end up as ghost towns, but BrowserQuest is an enjoyable distraction that’s full of players. The servers seem to swing between 1,000 and 2,000 players depending on the time of day. This may dwindle over time, but for now there are actually other people in this online world.
As you might have guessed, BrowserQuest heavily prefers Firefox. My attempts to run the game in Chrome and Internet Explorer resulted in crashes and incorrectly rendered graphics.
