In the past few days I’ve been thinking about working on my own game. Well actually there’s more than just thinking (as I do it all the time), because I’ve really started to watch videos and read about technology, game dev etc. So I got as close to actually working on my own game as I haven’t been in years.
But let’s get to the point.
What I know:
It will be multiplayer
It will be a RPG(ish)
It will have a lot of options/activities/subgenres
It will be free/freemium ( didn’t think much about monetization yet)
It will have a “real economy”
It will have DEATH (with big consequences, more like in rougelites, than simple respawn)
It will be focused on cooperation rather than fight/destruction (although it will be possible to interact with other players)
It will have a Log/Journal storing the history of the World
What I don’t know:
The title – I believe something will come up eventually.
The timeframe/release date – I learned to be realistic in this matters
Many of the details
Where/when do I start?
The ideas have started already last week. The coding will start probably this weekend.
What’s the goal/goals?
to create something I always wanted to play.
to simulate the fake world with real/common people having impact on it’s economy/politics
to earn shitton of $$$ 😀
For players – to have fun, and be part of something (hopefully) big and great.
I’m the author of the Imprisoned one of the first user-contributed games for Choice of Games. I kinda neglected it for these 5 years for various reasons, but I still keep getting messages here and there that people can’t finish the game and reach the ultimate ending, so I decided to patch it up.
And who knows, maybe if I get hooked again I may even resurrect my second project “The Orc”. We’ll see. Won’t promise this time.
I’ve started a company. It’s called Myth IT (if it’s not already obvious)
In the country I live in it’s quite uncommon not to say ‘rare’. And the best thing is that the one of reasons I started it it’s the one of the reasons why people in general avoid it – public health insurance. (For almost 80% of minimal wage you gain almost nothing)
Of course that’s not the only reason for taking such a big step in my career. Among the several others there was also a need to learn about living and, of course, a plan to earn helluva lot of money.
It was an inspiring step I must admit. Despite the fact I’m running my own company for less then 2 weeks now, I’ve already learned much about taxes, insurances, accounts etc. Nothing very interesting for a common folk, but a great deal of information for someone like me, who likes to know how the world goes round.
For the bad news – I can’t get the domain I wanted (also I won’t tell which it is to avoid competition) and I have to try to hunt it in a couple of months and for now try to find a backup one.
Hopefully that would be the biggest problem this year.
This is my new blog where I’m writing about everything that interests me (that is web development, IT, games, fantasy and more) while mastering WordPress. So don’t be surprised seeing WordPress in WordPress 😉
