Looks kinda interesting, but it could turn out to be more vapourware

We'll see

I think, as the creator of the game, you have little ground to be making statements like "looks cool".

It's rather dirty to be all like "look at what I found" instead of  "look at what I'm making"...

Okay, I don't know. But I have proven to myself beyond a reasonable doubt.

1) Unprofessionalism- The number of hits on the site is ridiculously low to be just noticed. It isn't even on Google, for god's sake. (This is without mentioning the ".tk" domain)

2) The poster's spelling and grammar are very much within the range of that found on the site.

3) The strongest argument- if you'll check the contact info, the creator's AIM nick is "MetallicSphere9". I mean, christ.

Hey, you never know what springs from evil...


Oh, reason #1 for Vaporware:
He starts with the GUI.

Baaaad.

I think the point was it would have been hard to stumble upon if it is not in any search engine.  (He originally said he found a cool game, he is infact its author).  :)

Ok Adriac cuaght me ;)
But It doesnt really matter.
The client and server is ready to go, gui is the part I am working on becuase the networking is ready, I just need a gui to write the commands into. I also decided to work on the gui now becuase I want to show its not vaporware. You will see it isnt on February 6th when I release the alpha to those signed up, then a couple days later when I have weaned out the bugs I will put out a server stress test.

Im calling it an Alpha becuase all it can basically do is login, create account, and chat. I cant call that a Beta. A Beta in my mind would atleast have some game content.

You know what time it is? It time for Miah-san's vocab lesson!

Today: Development

Alpha: A program in development that is only used by the creator(s)
Beta: A program in development that is given to testers to find bugs
Final: I hope I don't need to explain this

(I'm such a sarcastic ass)
