It looks like it does indeed say "Meta Soy". The domain www.metasoy.com, metasoy.net, and metasoy.org have all been registered by Three Rings.

Hmmm....that is curious. I am intrigued but it's an odd name. I wonder what type of game it is.

All my searches didn't produce anything related to a possible game.

https://www.cmpevents.com/GD07/a.asp?option=C&V=11&SessID=3717 mentions ninjas and also seems to make a point of capitalizing SOY, if anyone can pull anything from that. Not sure if Three Rings even came up with that blurb in the first place.

So, what? We'll be serving meat to unworthy cowboys and pirates with no noses? And there will be breakdanceing? In ninja costumes?

Heading into the beer market is a willd move on the part of our game designers, but could be a lucrative one. I, for one, am willing to try anything twice.

You don't really think that, do you? Their banner isn't their logo. Now I'm wondering which logo Soyabean designed.

A large-scale Ninja MMORPG with a great deal of player-interference. Not only can people make their own Jutsu, they can also help the Devs build up the land!

Just like their success-game Puzzle pirates, MetaSOY focuses on skill instead of time. Thanks to their extremely original way of fighting, you no longer have to grind to be one of the elite- all it needs is skill!

It also borrows more useful things from Puzzle pirates. As you'll almost always have to travel in groups, there is a noticeboard on which you can apply on other jobs, making the joy of partyfinding much easier. Also, the economy is player-run, and groups of ninjas can form unions to take over cities.

Yeah. I'd like that.
