MMORPG based on a book

AlverantAlverant Member RarePosts: 1,131

A while ago the news board here talked about a game in development based off a book written by a guy in SE Asia. I don't remember all the details. It's like you're trapped in a game which is a virtual reality. Does anyone know anything about it? (Like a name, that would be a big help to me if I had a name to plug into Google.)

    I think you are talking about Tad Williams' Otherland series.

    I was a big fan of his series Memory, Sorrow and Thorn.  I didn't really like Otherland tas much.

    To each their own. I prefer sci-fi to fantasy. That really limits my options in MMORPGs. Throw in my dislike of PvP and I don't have many to select from.

    Geesh i usually scoff those,that bury there heads into novels,but hey you guys are useful after all

    Got me interested i have to go check this out now

    Using the unreal 3 engine is a great idea for speeding up the process.I hope these early screenshots are not what we will get,as it is typical 99ut stuff.Static buildings in the background that really are useless other than filling in the background space.I also hope they plan on putting a lot more detail in there maps.

    I guess i have to find out who DTE is ,never heard of any good Singapore developers,wonder why they went there?i am guessing CHEAP cost lol.Stil early for this project ,so i will give it another year ,to show us something good.

    2010 release,pretty much the same as all the other UE3 using games that are in production,this is when we will see some cool new stuff coming out.iIhope it is not too late to include DX 11 into the 2010 games,because that architexture will allow games to be 100% better.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    I can see this being really good or really bad...not much middle ground in my vision.
