So, the game in New Eden, this virtual reality everyone’s a part of, is pretty much a virtual reality MMORPG with a bit of Minecraft mixed in. I’ve probably spent less than 10 hours playing traditional MMORPGs in my life, total. And I kind of like the creative process that why. I’m probably not going to create something that’s immediately recognizable, given my inexperience with the medium, but as a result, the setting, or at least this game, will be a lot more unique than if I tried to make a generic MMORPG with complete knowledge of the form, and hopefully, more interesting because of it.
I’ve got a lot of experience with MUDs, text-based MMO-style adventures, and that’s what I’ve largely been basing the game off of. I have no idea if most MMORPGs will let you pull up a list of currently online players, like LadyHate mentioned last post, but that was a pretty common feature to MUDs, so in it goes.
LadyHate: What happened to Annie?
LadyHate: What the…?
LadyHate: It’s never rained in-game before.
LadyHate: Clouds, too?
LadyHate: Annie, are you…
