Temporal Mechanics & Custom Builds

I've come up with another genre for Minoria, time travel. One of my many fields of expertise, I found several accounts of time travel incidents & I believe I can weave into a series of main missions & side missions in Minoria. Also I've found several custom builds of the Eclipse Origins engine including one that will allow me to embed the game on the website making it more convenient for some players.

In Search Of A Genre

I've been told by a member of the Indie DB that I should think about what Minoria is before I release it. So I'm using the update time to do just that. I've put a survey on the Minoria website to ask for public opinion & I'm going away for a week from Friday so that should give some time to define this game.

Going Through Changes

Ive finished making the first floor of the welcome center. Also I'm considering changing the MMO system as Eclipse Origins only allows me to have 100 maps & knowing me, I'll use more than that. I'm also considering changing what the game is about, the current game has no purpose & as a result it has no players. I'm also considering changing the name, but I've already established Minoria on Facebook, RMVX, the website & the Indie DB. But I'm going to attempt to keep the name if I can.

3D Game Design, Indie DB & Minoria Pre-Release 1.1

Ive been considering making a 3D next. However there aren't many 3D game makers that are easy to use & free. Also I've signed up at the Indie DB & posted both Safebox's Mod & Minoria, I'm currently awaiting approval of their postage. I've also started working on the welcome/information center in Minoria & as soon as its done I'll start working on a teaser trailer to help boost players (which is literally just me, Hacker & one other player).

Pre-Alpha 1.0 Release

Sorry for the lack of posts, I've been busy getting this game ready for pre-alpha release (which is out today). I'll be continuing to update the game with new areas & items once a week. Now I'm considering starting on a 3D game, whether or not I will is another matter.

Preparation Time

Today I got a few icons done for the clothing as well as finishing my office. I have to say, it looks amazing! Anyway, I should be ready for pre-alpha release by the end of this week (hopefully before the Olympics). I still need mappers to help me design the information center at the spawn area but it'll have to wait till the pre-alpha release.

Suit Up!

I've finalised the sprite template as well as the two clothing pieces; a default orange jumpsuit & a water outfit designed to give the effect of the player swimming. I am not sure what other clothing pieces to have just yet but I have decided on promotional items such as YogsCast skins & movie skins.

Still Requesting Help

Today I was at a loss as to how to design the main building in the spawn area. I need help designing these areas & quickly, I plan for a pre-alpha release next week & I can't do it unless I have at least 3 areas.

Requesting Help

I should be done mapping the spawn area tomorrow, then I'll get started on either the HUB area or my office. I might get some help with mapping as its taking longer than expected.

Shenghi Hill

I've nearly finished mapping the spawn area, which I have decided to name Shenghi Hill. After its finished I'll get started on the building interiors & my office. I've decided to make my office look space-y (or even put it in space).

Major Fail!

After attempting to map a fakemon town, I realised that I still cannot design maps. So I've decided to recruit via the RMVX forum. And I'm also gonna release a pre-alpha version sometime before the end of the week to allow fans to help.

One By One

I've added several tilesets to the game including SphaxBD Minecraft texture pack which I'm using for the terrain.

Back Again!

I'm back on my Google blog, and this time I'll be posting about Minoria. A new MMO that my team has in the offing. Every day I'll be posting at least one update about what were working on in the game & we may even host a little competition for people to gain gold rank once it's done.
