    Thumbs up [MMO] Seeking Server/Network Programmer [UPDATED 3/13/11]

    Team name:
    Evil Bia Games (Not a registered business yet but once complete team is in place will be registered as an LLC)

    Project name:
    Hedron Online

    Brief description:
    Hedron Online is an MMORPG in creation. It will feature 4 levels of PvP including Kingdom vs Kingdom with 4 Kingdoms. It will also be very heavily guild oriented with built in guilds as well as the opportunity to integrate an outside guild fully into the game permanently with a guild village, house, merchants, quests, trade, and other perks. It will offer niche quests (i.e. race, deity, guild specific quests) and moving quests as well as be group and team oriented. It will also offer in-game events which will permanently alter the game. These things give a gaming experience that will be different each time you play with a new character as opposed to an "assembly line" style of play. The goal is to integrate some old school gaming style with newer gaming style in order to recapture the fun factor that has been lost in some games of today.

    Snippet of the backstory which can be read in its entirety on the blog:

    ...Once their creation was complete they were exhausted of most of their Immortal powers. They needed a long and deep slumber to replenish their powers or they could die and Hedronasar would falter. Death was very much capable of meeting the two as they were too young still to have true immortality. They decided to use the last of their power to create demigods from some of the most respected and achieved inhabitants of their land. They charged these demigods with overseeing various aspects of the land as well as its inhabitants while they slept. These aspects were Life, Death, Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Sun, Moon, Time, Energy, Pain, Fate, Mind, Body, Spirit, and Soul. These demigods had Immortal powers similar to Hedronyra and Asarki. They could create, intervene, and had instant Immortal knowledge of all things and histories concerning the world of An that were known to Hedronyra and Asarki. They could not damage, destroy, or kill anyone or anything in Hedronasar unless it be by a mortal method. They were also granted immortality so that they could not die.



    The first three years were rather smooth. Hedronasar flourished and held no conflict. But all good things never seem to last. Greed set into some of the demigods and they began to abuse their powers. The demigods of the elements earth, air, fire, and water were the first to rebel. It started with simple things-creating new breeds of insects, animals, and plant life. Once they discovered how polished their abilities had become they began to yearn for the devotion that Hedronyra and Asarki had from Hedronasar’s inhabitants. With this greed for power they did the unspeakable. They altered the race of Giants by rooting their elemental aspects within them and demanded to be worshipped by them...

    We now have a client side programmer but still need a server/network programmer. We will also consider secondary programmers and we still need a 3D modeler.

    We now have a forum up. You can find the link in the revised post.

    Thanks everyone for looking
