DoomWood 2: Whispers of the Dark Lord

Posted by on 137 comments

It is good to have both a Day and Knight job

I have been spending my days working on the new 3D game, and my nights working on the continuation of DoomWood which will begin next week in AQWorlds. Thank you to everyone who poured forth your awesome-filled ideas of awesomeness. I ended up working quite a few of them into the script... which I finally finished at ~4:30am last night. (NEW RULE: It is not insomnia if it involves multiple coffees at the stroke of midnight.) The saga currently has 5 parts... with each segment getting increasingly crazy. The original DoomWood revealed Artix's story... but this new story will futilely shine the spotlight on a MUCH DARKER character (See what I did there? This character is so dark the spotlight does not work on them!) . By segment three, things get so out of control that it promises to completely mess up the main storyline of the entire AQWorlds game. *warm smile* REALLY hope you like it!

DoomWood 2: Whispers of the Darkness Lord

3D Game Update

I know everyone is anxious to hear more on the development of our new 3D game -- so here is the inside scoop for you. We have 3D character load, main-weapon/off-weapon/armor/helm/back swapping, texture blending, movement, and multiple "area" dungeon loading working. It works... but is not pretty yet (*TV Alert Announcer Voice* This is a test. A test of the emergency design notes pretty graphic system. In the event that any graphical element was actually pretty, there would be a screenshot or playable demo or both. OK, we both know there would definately be both. This was only a test. We now return you to your reguarly scheduled Design Notes.)  We ran a quick test, and most computers were able to handle, with 0 lag, over 100 of our moving/fighting 3D characters on the screen at the same time. This is because all the hard 3D work is done by your graphics card, not your CPU. There are a few weird glitches Minimal and Zhoom are trying to work out. For example, there is a 2 second delay when a character is first loaded. Once these are fixed, they will begin coding the game-logic for our new multiplayer server. You know... so you can log in and walk around! The alpha tests will be starting soon.

QUESTION: Would you like to do an alpha test where you can walk around and chat, even if there is no combat yet?

Sorry Comments are now closed for this post.
reallysillydude
reallysillydude: Yes, I would like to do that test. Will people who have not purchased anything from you be able to Alpha Test?

ThunderGod_Thor
ThunderGod_Thor: As far as I could tell only people who had could participate in the alpha but I am pretty sure that only applies to the alpha. And a alpha testing without combat would be fine, though this question was asked because you may not have finished the combat system or something like that. But even if it isn't there it would be nice to know the controls for skills so we don't just get confused when the hotkeys aren't what we expected.

Tenzan: This is something I want to bring up. When I was creating the name for my character in AQ3D, there was a massive amount of lag to my browser. The game was running finely, but the problem was that my browser, Google Chrome, was reacting so slowly when the game was running.

Anshirkhero
Anshirkhero: Yes i think that is a great idea :o this is the first stage of testing ( ALPHA) so, i don't think that people must expect that they can fight already. If you just give them a little , in this case the view and the walking around and chatting, they will come back to experience a fight.

Kodix 101
Kodix 101: Oh yeah, can you also explain in a storyline featured in AQWorlds why there is only one guardian tower left in Lore in AQ but there are all over the place DragonFable? I just want to know what caused the decline of the guardian tower. And why did the last guardian tower end up in a town in such a shaky future at first (in other words Battleon)?

Daxter
Daxter: YES DEFINITELY. even without combat it would allow us to customize are characters and settings (to some extent) and get a feel for the game before it starts picking up. you could see how fast is runs on your computer and befriend people for when the fighting starts. also, im sure if you do it will boost suggestions. if we get a feel for the game we may start to get ideas of cool things to have. PERSONALLY I REALLY REALLY WANT THIS GAME TO INCORPORATE TRADING.

Daxter
Daxter: I know this isn't very relevant to the question (which i answered) but i think it would be a good idea to have a voting system. after making all the basic things needed for the game, make two lists. one is a list of important things to go in the game and vote of popularity will tell you which one should be incorporated first. the second list you could pull from suggestions and by vote of popularity see what players want to see in the game the most. another one of the ways ive seen it done before is a player can create a suggestion and after going through moderation it gets put on the board. per each AQ3D account, you have 10 votes. per each suggestion you want to see in the game you can give it either 1, 2, or 3 votes. you can take away and put in votes at any time but you only ever have a total of 10.

it would be a great system for suggestions. probably a little easier than picking through twitter, and more players could participate. a very efficient way to incorporate suggestions into the game based on how popular they are to the gamers.

Alroc
Alroc: QUESTION: Would you like to do an alpha test where you can walk around and chat, even if there is no combat yet?

ANSWER: Heck yeah! It would give us all a chance to see how the game is going, what we can expect graphically, if our computers can handle it (they should be able to handle simply walking around and talking, but it's always safe to check...just in case you missed something) AND it might let us see the new world (if you guys have made that part of course ^^)

Grimhowl
Grimhowl: Von Krieger it'd be an honor to walk around and chat on your game, well i suppose it would be...if the testers got to walk around and chat with some AE staff members. We could share stories, ideas, the horrors of other 3D MMOs you know you'd get a real feel of what is like and disliked about alot of the 3D MMOs via a form of live chat as opposed to people bombarding you and your staff with tweets till you're seeing birds circle around you head. Til next tiem Von Krieger....Battle On!

ThunderGod_Thor
ThunderGod_Thor: I want trading, custom classes, and races. I think trading I needed because what if you happen to be in a guild and you wouldn't specialize in crafting, you could trade things or earn items and enchantments and such. Custom classes need to be more like you can't just Chan a I think with a custom class you just need four base classes with several specializations, and to actually make up for the weakness you would have a sub classes abilities to use when needed. Races are great ideas to have but they need to have special abilities for that race only. And mounts we need mounts to travel, if this game is going to be as big as it seems I don't wanna walk one hundred miles to ge t a pie like most games make you do for a first quest. Finally the difficulty to level and rank up classes as well as the mother difficulty needs to be raised from your other games so we all have goals to reach. (Soory about typos and such I was typing this without being able to read any of it, as in the words I typed won't show up on the screen.)

Vrilix: Yeah i would really like to see what you guys have been developing so far. I mean just seeing the video is good, but actually beeing in the game is even better! Oh and heres a suggestion that i thought would be fun to see in AQworlds :D Faction based pvp! I know you are focusing you efforts on aq3d and doomwood saga and thats all good but, if you ever find spare time on your hands could you consider it? Cause personally i think it would be very fun to represent you faction, in other things than just wars:P Keep up the good work, and cheers from Denmark!

J7: @QUESTION: Would you like to do an alpha test where you can walk around and chat, even if there is no combat yet?

Definitely would enjoy being able to PLAY the game, even without combat. Bring on the testing.
