Novus Inceptio gives you an alien world to rebuild

There’s something about the apocalypse that makes a world 100% more awesome, isn’t there? People get more creative, previously undeveloped mutated powers come into the light, and there are Thunderdomes everywhere.

That’s why it might be worth keeping an eye on one post-apocalyptic sci-fi MMO, Novus Inceptio. Being developed by a single person, Novus Inceptio aims to create an alien world where players will come together for “hardcore survival action, tactics, and strategy” in order to rebuild the world.

The sandbox aims to have some sort of aging and death system, although there will be clones to offset the loss. The main focus will be on establishing and building up player settlements with the aid of technology and supernatural abilities. You can get a look at the (quite pretty) pre-alpha world after the break.

NovusInceptio I don’t expect you’ll get anyone else mentioning it. I did because…I’m pedantic? Or obnoxious. :)

Anyway, best of luck with your endeavour – hopefully your enthusiasm and optimism will pay off. :)

Cyberlight ;) It’s okay – I know that the name is not 100% accurate to the Latin translation. But the best fit both the eye and ear, and visually – on the other hand, it’s much too late to change the name;)

The name should really be NovaInceptio (also correct and semantically equivalent: NovumInceptum). Inceptio is a feminine noun, so gramatically the adjective must be in agreement.

I would like to timely leveled one bad assumption. Although the project is referred to as post-apo, but definitely not like running around the wreckage of the world with a gas mask etc. It is not a post-apo ala falllout, mad-max etc. Post-apo project means that previously existed on the planet civilization and the actual story takes place hundreds of years after the disaster – everything is thriving with life and almost nowhere hint of disaster (here and there – as part of the lore).

You forgot to mention how 100% cooler post-apocalypse fashions are!   Who needs steampunk when you have leather jackets and gas masks?

“…hardcore survival action, tactics, and strategy.”
…I think there’s a cupcake in there somewhere. :(

My interest went down a ton with ” post-apocalyptic sci-fi” and was lost completely with “Being developed by a single person”. Maybe I’m a jerk but the truth hurts. Bye.

Polyanna I apologize in advance for the bad English, and perhaps I understand the question.

The whole world is procedurally solved via script, and internal logic. The basic surface is Pregenerated to cache including texturing. Other things such as flora, fauna, rocks, etc. are generated in real time procedurally. This allows me to Create World of about 576 square kilometers, including various biomes etc. in one person, and I do not need a lot of people on hand work. But do not leave everything up to jednocuchých Script – is still Ladi so that the atmosphere was the best. Whether it succeeded or not show for a few days ofociální presentation functional gaming build on a two-day gaming event in our country (http://gameday.cz/#program)
