This game looks like it might be a good upgrade from  minecraft . I could see playing Oort  Online with my kids once or twice a week. I will try it out sometime soon after the holidays are done.

    Looks like a heavily modded Minecraft to me. I wonder in what language its been written.

     

    But the worlds look pretty nice. As do the gfx effects.

    You know when you play too much MMO's when your partners pants have become a rare drop.

    Cant wait to see voxel based games to start launching. Is this a fad? Will it be the new staple of games? Kind of exciting.

    Just came from their website and I saw that they are working on the player races and avatars now. I have decided to wait till that is done before spending any money on the game. Once they have that done I will excitedly hop right in!

    This doesn't seem to actually be a minecraft clone. From the videos, dev speaks, etc it appears to be a fully functional Sandbox MMORPG that happens to use voxel tech because it streamlines the prodcedual generation of worlds and the ability for players to fully customize the environment. There appears to be epic bosses, gear, levels, races, etc. But its super early access atm as character models don't exist yet.

    I'm curious how PvP will be handled. From the dev talks, it sounds as if they want player created wars and conflict to happen, but have it some what moderated by land claims. Once more info is released I think I could get excited about it, but its definitely on my radar.

    Not a fan of Minecraft, but this actually looks fun :S

     

    Is there any ETA @ launch ?

    Last time i checked theres no combat in game yet.

    So besides building and Rope swinging ( worms bungie style ) theres really not much there yet.

     

    Does look nice though, you can get it on steam.

    Love their website!

    The problem with these type of games is to get the feel of a MMORPG, but still not a huge zerg fest where people screw things up for one another.

    The concept art looks beautiful though.

    They are going to attempt to tackle this problem through renting of private server space and becon land grabs akin to protected plots of land. It should work out pretty well from the sounds of it, but not all the systems are finalized yet.
