Looking good devs...
While I just finally am able to post here ( thank you admins) I have watched this game for a bit. I am really impressed with which way you are taking it. As a developer (not in the gaming industry) I am also impressed with how you are taking the steps to do it right. Being a gamer for 20+ years and going on my 4...something years of life, I must admit I have been waiting the longest time for a game like this to show itself.

People (friends) tell me , so why didn't you just make it, my response, "while coding isn't so hard, coding games is a nightmare" and I know the devs know what I mean by this. I do inventories, banking etc, so alas I know "how" but I don't want to do it. You really need the drive and motivation to want to do a game more then a paycheck and while I would have this drive, I have learned from other friends in the industry how hard it really is. I just don't think I could go threw those paces at my age, like it where I am :) but I don't mind script work etc, so if you ever need another tester hit me up ! :) (Self plug, sure why not )

Ok, so to the point, can't wait for the game guys, looks awsome. You probably are wondering "ok, so what was it that made this guy want a game like this for years?" Ahh simple answer really. If you ever played a game called dark age of camelot you know where I am coming from. While out of this genre all togather, it's concept is the same. Level and seiging, however you have more which I always wanted daoc to have. That is controlling your lands, customizing your towns/keeps defenses, etc.. plus nothing is more saticifying then doing the work to get your defenses up and seeing the little iconic minions building it for you. Sure is it really needed? Not really, but you get that sense of accomplishment watching it go up.

I love the details you are going for and the depth you are aiming at, anything I can do or we as a whole can do to better the path to which you want to take the game let us know for sure. I have let my clan know EXG , that this is a game too look at. If it wasn't for one of my friends, I would have never knew this game even exsisted. I read in a post rescently that your publisher is taking over the reigns of advertisment etc? Well good to see you will get some spot light, the game really needs it. The only advice as a long time gamer I can give to you is better screens and or videos.

Sadly today, games catch players more by the looks then anything, while your game doesn't need such, it is what gamers want. People can deny this , but you, me and many know this is not the case. People like fancy graphics and your game has it when we see the high rez shots. As an older gamer thou, I could appreciate this game in low pixel count as the concept is that which I always wanted. Thou, I won't argue a nice graphiclly enhanced game as yours doesn't hurt :)

Anyways, I be rambling at this point, I do look forward to seeing what you come out with in the next few months and hope to see a great release in what should be a huge success in the rts x4 genre.

Hey, and welcome to the forum guardious!
I'm glad you're looking forward to the game. Based on what you've said, I can guarantee you'll enjoy it very much :)

Have fun and welcome again.

Thank you for the warm welcome, I notice that the forums are slow, but alas I take that from the fact the game is just not well known yet. Once their marketing kicks in it should do great. I know allot of people interested and have forward the info to them. Again thank you for the welcome, look forward for things to come.

Yeah it's quiet right now as people are getting back from holidays/starting school etc. It should pick up as people get back into their routines and the beta march continues forward.

LiTos456 09-09-2010 12:12 AM

Yeah things have been quite lately for mixed reasons. Don't worry, it'll pick up again soon.

Thanks for the kind words! :)

And I apologize for the low-res screenshots, that's my fault. When I took the job, I was under the impression that Kon would still be taking all the screenshots. :rolleyes: But those days are behind us now as I got a new computer and am retaking all our old press screenshots, which you guys will see most of this Friday! All of our current screenshots are outdated too as we're enhancing the graphics every week. But Friday's should be 'final' as far as the GUI goes - still doing some texture variants and new hero models and textures and some small work here and there.

But yes, we have had some struggles with getting the attention of the press but I'm confident our publisher (who, I might add, seems as excited as Reverie) will do a great job. :)

Sounds great Alex. Does this mean the FF will come out at an earlier time on "Friday"??? Congrats on the new system too. :)

Alex Walz 09-09-2010 11:12 AM

Heh, most likely. :p It depends if I can finish my orc town in time and stick it in there. ^_^

GPS51 09-09-2010 11:20 AM

Well if you remember that sleeping is over rated that's like 6+ hours right there. Now get on it! :P

blackfang 09-09-2010 02:45 PM
