So, for the past few months a few others and I have been working on a game called Days of Destiny. (You may have seen recruitment posts for it littered throughout the net, posted before it was started)
What is "Days of Destiny"?
In a nutshell, Days of Destiny is/will be a 2D MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game). It's set in a post-apocalyptic world where the fires and hardships of armageddon have concluded and the world is being completely re-built anew.
The world is a 2D top-down view of tiled maps, while combat and specific other parts of the game will also be 2D, but side-on.
The basic concepts are similar to many other MMORPGs (for what is an MMO without levelling, stats, equipment and the like?!) however we hope that once they have been completed we can move onto exciting, original ideas which are still being explored, discussed and for the time being, a secret.
Days of Destiny is a game completely developed in the Java programming language (both the client and server).
It uses OpenGL for rendering, with LWJGL (LightWeight Java Game Library) as the wrapper around it.
The GUI is handled by TWL (themable widget library) which is written by our very own MatthiasM.
Networking uses the KryoNet library.
Database storage is implemented via MySQL, and when an official website for the game is written, it will be in PHP.
Snapshot of the game so far:
Please take a look!
