We are working on a game called Incorporated and we are looking for help. Incorporated is a social MMO where the player takes the role of a common citizen. By making the right moves this player can become a business mogul. Incorporated is based entirely on player interaction. With no story meaning the game never ends as the player decides their fate. WIll you be a rich and powerful player? Or will you lose it all and go bankrupt?.
Player Driven MMO
Incorporated is a MMO with no storyline. The game is primary focused on player interaction (Aside from NPC shops,etc). Players will advance in the world of Incorporated by increasing their income,social status, and businesses.
To help provide a better understanding of Incorporated a few scenarios can be seen below.
You are a player with a income of $4,000 weekly (in game time). You have completed your required classes in order to become a tier 1 chef and open up your own 1 star restaurant. In order for you to cook you will need goods that you can purchase from “Player A’s” Produce Shop or “Player B’s” wholesale farmers market. As you increase in customers you will need to upgrade your restaurant. “Player C” has a construction profession and owns and tier 4 Construction Company with the income of $1.6 Million weekly.Its is now “Players C” job to gather resources to build the upgrades for your business. This is just to show the flow of the game
You are a player who owns a $1.6 million company and plan to expand to different cities (and or regions). Only there is little to no properties available in your current region.It it now the job of Construction Workers to began work on a new construct to open a new region. Construction Companies must buy into the deed for a construct to began to add resources and gain minor income (based of %’s). However Construction Companies must buy their resources from Mining Companies.
