If you’re looking for a game that has been well formed, defined and ready to go… then this thread isn’t for you. I’m sorry to have wasted your time. But!
**If you’re interested in a project that is being built from the ground up on open source technology to test the demands and abilities of it, this might just be the place for you. **
Project Liberation is…
Project Liberation is a project designed to test the scope of OpenORPG and prove the viability by implementing a full game on the technology. It is designed to be a flagship title that runs the bleeding edge software and lead the way for other developers to believe in the technology.
_It is designed to be a fairly basic online game that combines classic gameplay elements into the browser to create a compelling virtual world to test the bounds. Project Liberation will go beyond being a simple sample game included in the source code, though. Project Liberation will be a full game that is playable, maintained and hopefully able to thrive on its own. This is a necessary step to prove the viability of a technology. _
Project Liberation is an open source project that hopes to bring a great browser based game on technology I’ve been developing. However, I am no game developer so I’m looking for a team that is willing to work with me to really flesh out this technology. I have presented a possible game-play scenario below, but the liberation project really could be ANYTHING
In the terms of an overview:
Project Liberation is based on a dystopian world in which adventurers are born into. Here, humans have gained the ability to use basic magic to make their lives easier. This is a world with no conflict among the citizens and crime is a low threat due to the heavy monitoring of magic that occurs within the bounds of the village.
However, magic is not always so innocent that it would only be used to help clean your home, water the plants or make dinner. While children are taught the presumptions origins of their magic, the elders of the country know the real truth. Humans have a much more powerful capability latent within them. All it takes is liberation.
Players will play as adults grown into a small village who will be sent to a temple, per graduation rites, at the beginning of their journey where they will slowly begin to learn the truth about their magic by mistake.
In other words, I want to work with you to move the community forward. I want to embrace free, open source work that anyone can use to develop their own game. And to do it, I need a game to work towards to make a robust engine. After all, **make games, not engines. **
So, if you are…
- A software developer (programmer)
- A graphics designer
- Game Designer
- Level designer
- … or any other creative field!
And you want to do any of the following…
- Contribute to the scene in a friendly, open way
- Develop a cool, modern game
- Expand your portfolio on open work that will always be available (don’t need to worry about the work disappearing!)
- Hone your skills on a project
Then, we should get in touch! This will be a creative project and I would like to get everyone who expresses interest involved in the project in some way.
**This will be a creative process. **Those who are apt in game design are especially encouraged to contribute, having well defined requirements will really help.
