About

TBD

Game Concept

Current deployment is a Sandbox to test NeuronNet Networking and Multiplayer APIs.

Game Details

  • This Alpha Release is built with minimal Eye/Ear candy. There WILL be many changes in design and appearance. This is a Minimum Viable Product.

  • The GameEngine will attempt to locate a 'localhost' server before searching for the Remote Server. This may take some time, please be patient. Details will be displayed in the console. 
  • At present there is no Loading Screen. The world is large and the Network Authentication is complex.

  • Please, be patient; each connection attempt could be up to 60 seconds per server before a live server is found.

  • If the Mouse is over a User Interface object the player avatar will not move. This is by design, but will be changed in a later version.

  • In Combat Mode (First Person Mode), Targeting is done with the Screen Center.

  • There is a day/night cycle. (managed by the server).
