Introducing the newest addition to the (long) list of current Eclipse WIP’s.
An MMO created using the Eclipse Worlds engine set in a world where fantasy meets steampunk.
Main game focus
! The game will be focused around aquiring equipment and skills through adventuring and crafting while trying to complete the main storyline to win the game, a task which will be difficult since perm death is a planned feature (except for PK in which case the character will respawn at their last save point)
! There will be no leveling in this world so finding good gear and skills will be key to success and survival.
! Health will not automatically regen unless the character is sleeping or sitting by a campfire.
! One of my major goals for this game is to create a combat system as close to action combat as I can get it. Right now, I have come quite close, by adding in a short dash skill to let players jump out of range and increasing the attack power of NPC’s and weapons to deadly levels this forces players to dash in and out of combat. In the future I hope to add skillshots, untargeted shots and perhaps a dodge mechanic. I imagine players will buy and sell skillbooks to each other to get the perfect skill set for their weapon.
! Apart from the main storyline, which is playable by everyone, there will be few quests that can be done more than once. I plan to have them occur in vague ways, a player overhearing a rumour, or happening to find a robbery in progress. Anything, to encourage exploration of the world. As the easy quests close to the start zone are completed players will be forced to travel farther to seek new challenges and, if they run out of quests I, as the developer, can just add new ones.
! More info coming soon
Please note: All graphics are also currently a WIP I will be fixing and changing a lot of them :)
