Little back story. Years ago I was doing a fake kitbash rpg walkthrough just for the fun of it. I was telling a friend of mine who live up in Canada about how i was putting these different elements together and he seemed to like the idea and started talking me into putting ideas together that we could perhaps actually turn into an MMO. Unfortunately I stopped work on it sometime after he was killed by a bear while exploring the woods.

Recently I came across some of the remnants of that project on an old drive and was thinking (again really just for fun) to perhaps finish what I started. I'm just not sure I should bother.

The version that would have possibly become real was going to be a game similar to Runescape. Placed in a pseudo medieval fantasy setting. The idea wasn't to really make it all that graphic intensive, but the world in which it took place would have been massive.

Even though I want to I can't seem to bring myself to work on it. Guess I'm looking for some yay/nays and to see what a bunch of gamers might think of the idea seeing as the project might seem a bit dated by what is out there now.

Yes, do it. I'd like to see what you can do.

Sorry about your friend, but I think you should totally work on it. Which programming language was it in?

Don't know, that would have been left up to my friend. At the point we were at it was basically just "I come up with the ideas and he makes it happen."

In honor of him make the final boss a GIGANTIC BRUTAL EPIC grizzly bear demon as a tribute to him. That is honorable and respectable. If you understand what your freind would have wanted in a game you should be able to create something to memorialize your relationship.

I fail to see how that would honor him. To me, it seems kind of callous.

I was thinking of playing up the MMO route more so it would be open ended without any final boss. Though originally it would have had a story to follow.

This sounds like every MMORPG so far. I'm curious to know what would make yours different from the rest.

Never really intended it to be all that different. Just was taking the elements I liked from other games. They got tweaked here and there. Just wanted something with lots of flexibility to it. Like I said it's a bit dated now.

I suppose one thing that I would have liked but wasn't sure how it could ever be pulled off was actually having working cities to explore. So instead of having just a few shops and quest spot or just looking like it's a massive city, it would actually have all these NPCs running around each with their own home and jobs.
