Ladies and Gentlemen,

Reverie World Studios would like to welcome you to our new Dawn of Fantasy website! After some delays, against all odds we were finally able to open it today.

So go ahead, explore http://dawnoffantasy.com. And please let us know what you think.

Keep in mind we`ll add second version of the trailer to the video section this weekend, right now there is only one there. Also a splash page and some new screenshots will be added with-in the two weeks.

And while you might find the features page quite dry (at least it`s up to date). During the next couple of months we will be adding a lot of content to the features sections including numerous narrated videos, screenshtos and other media and information about the game.

Before I forgot - I want to take a moment to thank our media team, especially Ryan Zelazny, Danny Vink and Joel Steudler for making this day happen.

My f****** god, that page is IMPRESSIVE!
The trailer is just stunning, I can say for sure I'm not making a fan trailer now because this one is WAY better than anything I could make, and it's also somewhat in my style so there's no point of making a new one, it'd be like a clone.
Time to update dofsource! This was TOTALLY worth the wait. Good job guys, this is going to really raise everybody's morale and appreciation of the game, you really succeeded here! Failure is not an option! :)

Wow, wow, wow and wow again, it is so awesome that I really can not say anything, it is a must watch. :eek:

The only thing I don't like is that I really can't rip of pages from the book to take them with me for showing them to others :P.

Danny Vink
08-07-2009, 03:36 PM
If only we had rippable pages....well, there is always more updates that can add that! </sarcasm>
:)

Really though, thanks for the positive feedback everybody

September 15 says... this could mean that first closed beta would start on 2nd half of September ? :rolleyes:

Oh, oh, should we register to the forum gain to secure our spot ? :p :p :p

TNX. I wait my turn even if this means last beta stages... for a second thought I might try dofsource.

BTW, in the end will Reverie use microtransaction in the game as it is mentioned on the webpage ?

nice site folks - much easier to navigate and a better working of a previous good idea.

I think this is a record for Reverie World Studios, as well. We released something earlier than we said we would (we said the website would be up Saturday the 8th). This has never been seen before!

Simply Amazing work guys, but I'm guessing that the beautiful background is no longer the cover of the game. (Or is it?)

All screenshots are now available for download on dofsource.com for whoever needs them! :)

The new page looks awesome, and i really love the trailer. I thought the game would look even more awesome in movement then in the screenshots, and i was right :D .But u say the look isn't final...i wonder how u can improve the visuals that to me appear stunning as they are now :O .wowowow

The new short trailer is online. It is a shorter version of the new long trailer we just released yesterday. Its mainly for press purposes, as well as a quicker insight into the game. It is now on the Videos page on the website

You're quiet for a PR guy, probably off playing the game all day :O heheh.

Anyways vid's pretty nice, I hope this game has top down view, I hate when it's angled too much!

Danny Vink
08-10-2009, 04:03 AM
I'm quiet am I? No, I've just spent the last three weeks editing these trailers with Joel, so I feel a bit relieved. You'll be hearing a lot more from me though. Andy Joslin and I did an interview not too long ago for Heaven Games actually..

Aametherar
08-10-2009, 08:04 AM
Well you did a great job, the trailers are quite awesome! Perhaps in the future wel see a spoiler trailer with a bit of the storyline in it, or a backstory of the lands :O

If I were you I'd clarify that the game does not require a pay monthly fee as people interpret MMO as a regular fee.
Site itself is sweet and fits in well with the idea of the game.
I think I may have missed something, but did you guys release the Publisher's name yet?

I read about Dawn of Fantasy ages ago and likes it, but those new trailers really convince me it's going to be good. :)

I strongly agree. I saw some rude comments on gametrailers, one asking that if he has to pay monthly it's a nogo.

Konstantin Fomenko
08-11-2009, 06:16 PM
We have noticed several comments from people who were obviously familiar with DoF (our forumers?). So hey - glad we can count on you guys to spread the words of wisdom:) I don`t think as a developer we should barge in on these discussions and again and again post something like "no monthly fee". And including "No Monthly fee" in the trailer as a feature won`t look right as well...

Thank you for all the wonderful comments on the new website. Unfortunately I was out of town for the last 2 weeks, so I missed the unveiling, but I'm very glad that you all like it.

In the development a few corners had to be cut to make the deadline, so in the future you will see changes happen to the website to improve upon what we already have. As changes are made I will be posting announcements to inform you all.

Again, thank you all for the great feedback. Also if you have any issues with the new website, please PM me so I may work on resolving any issues.

Good day! My name is Darky as you may see. I'm kinda confused. I was just flamin' round the interwebs and then I was like "hmm maybe there's a good MMORTS finally, let's have a look" So I got here, I'm impressed by the trailer, looks great, great Idea, I've gotta have this awesome game! Then I got to dawnoffantasy.com/ "Sign up at the forums for a spot for the closed beta"-stuff. Now I'm here and I'm thinkin' "Is my spot secured?"

Nope... It's very selective. You can try to win beta keys from fan site contests though, such as the one in my signature.

Kaznafein
09-11-2009, 12:03 PM
? sign up before September 15th to secure your spot in beta is misleading if what you say is true about it being very selective. I'm not saying it shouldnt be selective but whats on the site is a little misleading if it is selective.

heheh, you just noticed that huh? But CB is a ways away, let me explain.

Greetings,

It looks like we`ll be looking to fill several intern positions soon, looking for scenario designers, and lua scripters mostly, but might be couple of art department positions as well. And before we start active search we figured we`d give our forumers the heads-up first, I know there are at least a dozen of good scn designers here!

These intern positions are part-time, work at home, no obligations kind of deal, without direct compensation, just bonus payments and profit sharing. But dedicated participants will have the opportunity to become a full scenario designer with-in a few months.

You`ll get to play the game and QA the current content prior to the start of the closed beta, while you learn the DoF editor. And after several weeks of learning DoF scripting (lua) and working on your own fan projects with the DoF editor, you`ll take part in creating Dawn of Fantasy MMORTS quests and other content.

Doesnt actually mean the beta will be starting soon but I believe it will be.

Thanks, can't believe that my years wasted on making maps on AoM would pay off (That game's scenario designing got so complicated, that I'll probably be able to adapt to this one easily).

First stages of CB1 are not that far away - dunno a month maybe?. Remember that first two stages of CB will be offline game content only making the game stable enougth.

The full-on MMORTS stage of beta testing won`t start till approximately November though.

As for the new guys we are hiring they`ll be working on the mid and late game mmorts content (10+ hours in mmorts progression), we already have something like 45 start-up, and 9 early game quests done:)

That sounds awesome. If I don't become an intern at least the game will be available to me before my birthday in nov : p

A game like Darkfall I followed for over 7 years. It's name was a veritable synonym with 'vapoware' until a week AFTER people got into beta lol, I was playing the game under NDA before the die hards that when they uttered darkfall a long list of reasons it was 'exactly like mourning' were never far behind finally had their heads explode when presented with irrefutable proof. this game is progressing quite fast relatively! ;)

It's hard to respond to you when I have no idea what the hell you're talking about :p I'm just guessing you were talking about how long it's taking to release/get into beta. And if you were, that game was several times worse lol.

Well at least I hope I will. I should have enough skills by then to offer something of value.

Well, good luck with that, two years is an awfully long time. It's an interesting notion, where will this game be in two years. I suspect it will either become a cult favorite or huge success, probably not sc2 or anything, but still, not seeing a middleground for something with a lot of new ideas, or maybe not so much new ideas as a combination of old ideas and a few newer ones that has never been fully realized.

I wouldn't be spending all my time studying lua and ignoring my gf to try and get an internship if I didn't think this game was going somewhere ;) I just see those as the two distinct possibilities, this game is in a unique situation. Most games -are- by definition going to be run of the mill average.
