    I'm compiling a list of people I could have do some work in developing a net based game to put some of these online RPG's to shame.

    I need Java and Object C programmers familliar with Cocoa and Linux, Graphics Professionals willing to work with mixed 3D objects, textures, light.

    I need Legal gurus to keep me from going Bungie.

    I need Database and AI programmers familliar with the Unreal engine.

    send resumes and portfolios to: mischief6xr@mac.com.

    You will get an E-mail back when it pops. Please understand that a startup Gaming company runs on contracts and caffeine for the first couple years so don't expect a company Hummer or anything..........We'll be doing a lot of Beta Gaming before this sees the light of day.:D

    Re: Careful..........

    No problem. I can at a minimum identify where you might want to consider alternatives and what problems you might have if you intend to raise money from investors (private placement securities offerings and issues related thereto)

    I can also give you some "suggestions/advice" regarding the form of business you choose.

    Just let me know when you get that far, and I'll give you my email (it will be changing soon)

    Everquest has been announced for Mac and is coming to OS X in mid-2003. I think you guys should let Blizzard do the work. I believe that Blizzard will release WoW (World of Warcraft) on the mac. Just look at the evidence. Warcraft 3 was a simultaneous release on both OSs and I'm sure Blizzard would like to compete with Sony over MMORPG domination on the Mac platform. I'm sure that most Mac gamers would rather go with a Blizzard game than a Sony-Station game. So I think you guys should all start lobbying Blizzard for WoW instead of trying to make a good MMORPG. Sorry guys I think the odds are stacked against you.

    Jeez.

    Actually, being a paper-and-dice gamer at heart I refuse to put any map-based computer game on par with what we are attempting.

    This will NOT be a map based game but a first-person emmersive environment. Neither will it be a combat-centered hack-and-slash like Quake and Diablo. This is to be a WORLD without levels or points for killing things, no alignments or "My level 75 Palladin can..."s. This is designed for actual traditionalist gamers who prefer characterization to hacking for the most disgusting killfest. It's designed for the 18-40 year old male geek audience.

    You newbies whine too much :rolleyes: This is a seperate genre from Everkrack and WoW. If you're not assisting with the game don't post in this thread.
