New theme and new game (dev blog entry 1 I guess?)

It’s been some time since the last update.

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.

The Game

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
  • Graphical design
  • Sound/music
  • 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?

For me:

  • 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 $$$ :D

For players – to have fun, and be part of something (hopefully) big and great.
