MAF Online Ends Service as of Oct. 31, 2010
Dear MAF Islanders,
Thank you so much for trying out MAF Online. After a 5-month often rocky, but nonetheless gratifying run, MAF Online is ending its service on Oct. 31, 2010.
For a smaller developer like us, MAF Online is an ambitious and challenging project. We’ve learned so much from this experience, and we would like to thank all of you for helping us realize the lessons and guiding us to recognize our strengths to further improve and weaknesses to work on. The feedback, opinions, thoughts, and suggestions you’ve sent towards us are going to be the backbone of new MAF Online. The new MAF Online will be launched sometime next year.
As of now, Waplesoft is developing a web game version of MAF Online, which will be introduced in Japan early next year. We will keep you posted on that as well through our website, Facebook, and Twitter.
Again, thank you so very much for your interest in MAF Online and for leading us to directions we should take as we move forward. We will see you soon with the more improved version of MAF Online.
Sincerely, MAF Online / Waplesoft

My, Your, Our Islands
Become a proud owner of an island
Register as a resident of MAF World and become an owner of a private island.
Its actually a tiny, cute-as-a-button islet when you first move in. What happens next is up to you. With your help, this baby can grow up to be a gigantic apple farm or a modest-sized island with cozy hideaways for your close friends to come by. The possibilities are endless.
But the catch is that you need money to expand the island property, and money doesnt grow on trees. Collect money and sellable items by fishing, farming, foraging, or mining, and trade these booties for lands and other necessary items. Your hard work will sure pay off in the end!
Get to know Bel
Bels are pet-like animal creatures that can talk and do all sorts of other things for you. There are currently three types of Bels living in MAF World: Benny the Cat, Linny the Bunny, and Henney the Otter. You get to take care of these unique characters one at a time. Send him to classes, have him help you with housework, and get him part-time jobs so that these experiences will help your Bel build a successful career later on.
The fun part is that these Bels can compete against other users Bels to win special titles and skills.
Badges Bels win for completing career goals are icing on the cake.
Make friends and families
Personalizing a tropical island and taking care of Bel should be fun and exciting enough, but theres much more to MAF Online. MAF stands for make a friend after all.
First things first, to help jump start this exciting new journey, if you let us know what you like and dislike, we will find you a buddy with matching preferences. Then when you are ready, go out to the Mafin Plaza and make new friends. Play real-time multiplayer games with them. Invite them to your island. Give them gifts or send them messages in a bottle.
The best part of it is that, in MAF Online, friends can choose to merge or connect their islands and live on a new big island/community as a family. Benefits? Family members can visit each other without loading up new locations, which makes helping or hanging out with each other so much easier.
