So why tell you this?
Even if you don’t care, you saw it announced here today and you know I now started working on it, have a goal and a release date.
I going to beat multi-man high dollar teams because I want the damn challenge. Many projects are flocking to Kickstarter anymore. Big names and small names alike needing big money to get the job done and years of development time. My project is a one man team and it’s going to stay that way so don’t ask unless you are willing to actually do work and mean real work not just tell me how to make it. Don’t expect a contract either. You will be here because you believe in it or hit the road. I don’t need or want the aggravation and I’ll probably tell you no anyway. There will be no website, no BBS, no blog by me except postings here hopefully in this thread unless it gets locked or deleted. If you want that shit then make your own following. I won’t sue you or require some NDA or anything of the sort. I just am not going to have time to invest into that end of the spectrum now.
There will be no Kickstarter or crowd funding of any sort. If this can’t get off on it’s own than it wasn’t meant to be. Hopefully it starts drawing in attention but that is probably not going to happen either and I’m not going to sell it out so don’t ask.
It starts today with a clean slate. No world made. No code written. All previous work has been deleted.
Let’s see how far it gets.
I’ll take a look at it once a month and update it. If I don’t update it probably means I died. After my heart attack in August I try to smoke less, eat right and get better rest so I won’t be putting in 20 hour days anymore. Since I work a real job 8 to 10 hours a day and 5 on Saturday I have limited time. If I do die then it will never get done. I really won’t care after that will I? I may never get done anyway but I’m planning to have a workable Alpha in 18 months. Maybe beta by 2017 and release by 2018. If more get involved maybe move it forward but I’m not going to wait with batted breath for that either. This is 4 years, one guy, zero funds so don’t hold your breath but do stay tuned.
I will be using assets I can find as place holders while I create my own or buy them but again I seriously doubt it will ever get to the public release simply because it is not a AAA title in the main stream.
Haven’t decided yet. I may call it Prophetic Justice. I’m sure that many will call it something else but go ahead. Maybe I’ll use your title.
Medieval / Science fiction because I like that. if you don’t to bad. Go elsewhere.
BigWorlds Indie because I am cheap, can’t afford to pay the full price and don’t want to spend years developing a network infrastructure. Have already paid for it several years ago so I do have a license to use it. Hero Engine just can’t cut the mustard with gridding out worlds or I would continue to use it.
OW FFA multi-faction PvP (greater than 3 factions) with no full loot. Sorry to burst your bubble but full loot is just not going to happen. Again, don’t harp on it or ask, It’s set in stone.
Crafting – Best and only way to get good items. NPC will sell you basic gear. There will be some quests but nothing with uber gear.
If you want quests then make your own or submit me a story. I’ll put in the world if it is within the theme.
Guilds – Basic guilds and alliances with cross faction capability.
5 levels – Beginner to Advanced in five steps. Not sure what names I’ll use yet.
No classes – You can mix and match skills to make your own class.
35 skills maybe more depends on how it works out.
World size – Not sure how big it will get but starting it around 20 KM square or 400 Square Kilometers non-instanced seamless.
Titles - Some to start. Depends on the time factor. Not a major feature but there for personal goals.
Housing – Probably not at the beginning. If it does get there it will be OW.
I’m sure I missed something but this is the basic design.
