Amazing sandbox MMO!

impiroimpiro onbekendPosts: 204Member

I just found out about this game minutes ago and im blown away. I didn't see it in the list of MMORPG.com and this is a shame. I dunno how many people know about this, but i'm going to post it anyway!

 

About the game:

It's called Love and its a sandbox MMO created by 1 person (yes for real).

You are misinformed now, dear OP. Now it's up to 500 players per server. ^^

It costs 3 Euros per month to play and is completely player operated for the most part.

The gameplay so far consists of players entering the world, joining a settlement (or placing one if one isn't created yet), gathering tokens, building a base and working with other players to take down the AI and defend their settlement.

LOVE is not about winning. It's about the neverending cycle of winning and losing. It truly is something you take with a grain of salt because it is a hell of a lot different than anything you'll ever see.

So what makes LOVE different?

- easy to learn, hard to master FPS style gameplay

- parkour style freerunning

- PROCEDURALLY GENERATED WORLD!

- completely terramorphable world

- auto-assigned names for plenty of immersion

- the most awesome art style ever. you have NEVER seen low-poly graphics look so good

- never-ending persistent world

I didnt have much hope for sandbox MMOs untill now, but if 1 person can create this, the possibilities are endless.

    I have been trying to remember what this was called, i saw a video about it on X-play (i think it was x-play) about 2 years ago and only just remembered it a few days ago but couldn't remember the name or codename it had back then.

     

    Looks even more amazing now.

    There has been a couple articles about Love on Massively.com that I've been following. It is intriguing to say the least. I'm waiting to see how it pans out.

    About the game:
    It's called Love and its a sandbox MMO created by 1 person (yes for real). The general goal, I think, is to build stuff and do whatever the hell you want! The servers are only filled with 200 players so the scale is a lot smaller than most other mmo's.

     That's pretty close to a true sandbox.

    Perfect Life is the only game I can think of that's more sandboxy.

    I would play it.

    Pure Epic stuff!

    I watched everything on Youtube, and this seems to be the most fantastic game i have ever seen. You know what? I get another one of those moments......it is almost embarresing......why cant major companys do anything like this? Why do they always have to give us the simpliest and cheapest crap they can find? It is 2010 now.

    This game looks like a psychedelic dream

    World of Warcraft is a proof that MMORPG quality should affect schedule/budget and not the other way around.

    Buying today. Even if it's crap this guy deserves support.

    This game was featured in the News forum just recently.

     

    If this game does what it claims to do in the gameplay footage (what i mean is if it can survive real players in a live game) then yes... it will kick this industry up the arse (which is badly needed IMHO)

    And this guy will retire a multi millionaire - well deserved too.

    Nothing says irony like spelling ideot wrong.

    Other than that it is the only  true sandbox out there and its produced by a single person that did a better job on creating  original and interesting gameplay (running on a true dynamic engine that produces a world that is dynamic and changing constantly)  than developers with botomless budgets did? Nothing much....

    Props to this guy, the game looks very interesting and I think the title says it all and what even one person can create with enough energy ill be checking it out.

  • DiSpLiFFDiSpLiFF Toronto, ONPosts: 605Member

     Its very impressive that only one person did the whole game... 

    But seriously it really shows rofl, i'm not one for graphics over gameplay but seriously it looks like something I would play on super nintendo. 200 people per server is tiny especially for a sandbox mmo.

    Apparently you haven't played many sandbox style MMO's.  Wurm Online is about 20x more of a sandbox then Love is and Wurm Online was originally created by just two people. About a year or so ago one of the two founders left and Rolf started up a small team of volunteers to help work on the client side of the game.

    Love is a interesting game but its art style and barrier of entry are going to be two of its big downfalls.

    damn man, how can big devs even come out with all those crappy games with years of planing, millions of dollars and ONE guy make such awsome gameplay. SHAME on big companies.

    now: GW2 (11 80s).

    I can't believe people really think this game doesnt look amazing. It's about stye not graphics. This is basicly why WoW still looks very appealing even though the graphics are outdated. The art-like style of this game is lovely imho.

  • daarcodaarco GavlePosts: 4,497Member

    Anyone else wanna get this MMO?

  • altairzqaltairzq barcelonaPosts: 3,811Member

    Looks more like a FPS.

    It's defined as:

    # Genre: First person not so massively multi player online procedural adventure game.

     

    What makes it' sandbox for you?

  • Pkmn_knightPkmn_knight Monlaur BernetPosts: 60Member

    You pwned that guy

     

    Good thread I couldn't remember the name of this one. It's back on my radar

    I'm really not much into city building but i can applaud the guys effort though I don't think i would play.

  • RealmLordsRealmLords Chicago, ILPosts: 358Member

    I'd heard of this back when it was still alpha.  Very impressive in terms of player created content.

    To the OP,we already had this guys whole presentation posted here and i watched it.

    I commend him on his efforts,but the game is very cheap,i really do not believe he fathoms many people playing it.

    I guess he is just a talented person that is financially sound.I figure if anything he created some nice tools and proves he has some talent.This will open doors to big developers i am sure.

    I really think he wasted his efforts ,other than building himself a great portfolio.There is too many BETTER game engines out there,i cannot see anyone licensing his engine,i really do not see much use for it at all.However in that presentation he did elaborate on many new tools he created to make editing much nicer,so maybe he can license those for himself.

    Basically i guess in a round about way,i am saying ,that i do not understand the purpose of his game or his game engine,other than to prove he could do it.It is low tech ,low poly and will not sell.It serves no purpose to the gaming community outside of maybe his editing tools and not much more.I could see some bored office gamer ,maybe downloading it and goofing around with the tools,but for gaming purposes,it has no merit.
