'The Herb' Oddly Named Classic MMORPG In Development

blueturtle13blueturtle13 Member LegendaryPosts: 12,788

The new MMORPG game being developed by a very small indie team is in development with  a variety of PvE events, ranked PvP, a robust Guilds system, Pets & Mount system as well as a deep social element. Not sure how good/bad it will be but here it is. I stumbled on it this morning.

    Perused around the website - the story has another video and is pleasantly nice, the text is a little bit funny but hey I more than welcome any sort of MMO development in hopes they achieve a home for travelers.

    Yeah, but I wouldn't name a game after a resource this planet is said to be popular for xD

    It would be like calling the earth "Seawater" because there's a lot of it. :)

    I dont think its an awesome name but its not just a resource. It the main source of dispute and invasion of their planet because this herb makes anyone a powerful warrior. Their way of life has been destroyed because this herb is sought after by people of other planets. IMO they should give the herb a cool name and call the MMO that.

    Yes, incorporate the name in a meaningful way instead of generic "Herb". I can't imagine telling people about this game and not getting confused responses.

    I would call the herb "The Awakening" and that leads you to ask what that name means.

    Or it might be what spice was to Dune.

    What is more interesting is that more games in the style of older games and their combat are being developed. It is a trend I fully support

    It fails on several fronts.
    markers over npc heads grr
    arrows showing destination route grrr
    I saw some mage animation/effects that looked utterly stupid,like some pulse laser effect. ::
    ranked pvp,this alone =dead on arrival.
    The title is umm how you say CRAP.My most hated ref in MMA is Herb Dean,and this reminded me of Herb Dean.

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

    Yeah Dune is what was brought to my mind when thinking about their name. 
    Obviously not in the specifics of what Dune is but in it's naming.

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    Looks like a decent indie project. Will ofcourse never reach to much height but if the devs make a buck from it, get experience out of it and perhaps a funder for a project afterwards... Who knows. Nowadays it seems like a lot of companies are either old AAA companies or 1-hit wonders that disappear right after. Could use some devs that actually came from the ground up ;)

    I have to admit I really like what I see here. If they put up a kickstarter or a pledge page and they did a good job of presenting the game. I may back it lol.

    Drugs? Whatever do you mean? I cited Cheech and Chong for their exceptional comedic acting.

    I have no idea, but with the name of "The Herb", I don't think they're talking about basil or paprika :)
