First off, I'd like to thank Certis, without his consent, I wouldn't have started this thread.
Hey all, my name is Ethan and I work for an indie games developer, Mechanist Games.
I just wanted to drop by to talk about our first title, answer some questions you may have, and gather some input (being indie, we’re a really receptive team). Don’t worry, I’ve been warned about not making this too “spammy”, so I’ll try to keep it short!
The game we are working on now is called City of Steam (if you don't mind an external link, here is our site: www.cityofsteam.com), and we are heading for the Closed Beta Test in November. So to those that don’t know what City of Steam is (we don’t have widespread recognition….yet), it’s a free-to-play browser-based MMORPG with an industrial fantasy theme, light weight enough to play even on older computers. Thanks to the powerful Unity 3D and heaps of in-house tools for optimization, the game takes mere megabytes to load up and stream, without having to sacrifice heavily on the graphics or content.
Hi everyone, we've opened gates of Nexus again, Beta is now launched and ready to play. Visit the link below if you don't have an account yet and start your journey in just minutes.
Ok, enough of that before this gets too long. I just want to mention that, as one of the developers, I'd be more than happy to discuss any comments or questions you may have about the game. Just drop me a line or post a reply here, and I'll get back to you (after all, I didn't come here just to 'spam and leave’; I actually do want to hear what you think).
We may be small, but we're very receptive to player feedback too, and strive to openly discuss the development process. As one of the dev team, Feel free to drop me a line and I'll respond to any questions you may have!
