The One Man MMO Project: It's a Game!

It's funny how things can sneak up on you. I've been working on adding lasers, fixing bugs, mucking about in Blender, and adding animation to my recent art acquisitions. There have been a lot of evil, evil bugs to fix, and I've been pretty heads down. So today, after I hunted down the last bug in a rather long series, I was testing the fix when I had the sudden and shocking realization that the game I've been working on full time for two years and five months had become a game!

Not a monstrous pile of code. Not a graphics demo. Not an engine. A game.

I could show it to a grandmother and she'd recognize it as a game. People can play it. Quite a few people I suspect. Not as many as I need it to, but a lot.

It's still missing many of its big features, and it has lots and lots of bugs, but it is undeniably a game.

More importantly, it is THE GAME!

The catalyst for this project was the great times I had playing co-op LAN games on Tuesday nights with my buddies. I had a vision of the kind of game I wanted to play. None of the big game companies ever made that game. At long last I can play that game.

So cool! So amazingly cool. Wow.

No, you can't play it yet. Sorry.
