Worlds of Magic

Anything else to do with MoM IME

Worlds of Magic

Postby Implode » Tue Aug 26, 2014 12:36 pm

So, I'm wondering if anybody even comes to this forum anymore, and if so what people think of Worlds of Magic? I was obviously initially excited to hear someone was attempting a complete MoM rewrite in a full 3D environment and been keeping an eye on it but honestly... it isn't inspiring me much. Maybe its the whole thing about first impressions sticking, and my first impression was downloading the alphas they released for the combat engine, and its not that the combat engine isn't good but... why start there? Combat is IMO one of the far lesser interesting pieces in MoM, I mean 95% of the time don't you just hit Auto? :) That makes me worry that their focus is entirely wrong. So my opinion is while Worlds of Magic might end up being a great game in its own right, it isn't going to feel like it has much to do with MoM. Just wondering if others are also sceptical about it or if I'm worrying over nothing.

I'm plugging ahead putting a ton of effort into the 0.9.5 MoM IME Java client at the moment and it looks fabulous. I'm trying to post some screenies as soon as I can, just wanting it to look a bit more polished first.

Hey Implode,

I am actually one of the devs working on Worlds of Magic. :) I try to check the progress of MoM IME at least twice a year, though I really lost hope at one point.

Why did we presented alpha demo of combat at first? Well, it's simple - combat is much easier to implement, both in terms of coding and graphical assets and it works much better as a short, quick presentation than a crippled world map with few features.
That said, we've come a long way since that demo: the combat is overhauled, prettier and with a lot more features and a good AI; the strategic map is there along with seven planes, cities, neutral towns and world features. We have AI that's really decent (though it can't cast strategic spells yet), four playable races and 200 spells implemented. I think the work is coming along nicely :) .

We're going on Steam Early Access next month. I can spare you a key if you'd like, just finish that damned port! :)
Warsaw isn't a kind of a battle saw. It's the capital of Poland.
