Retro-themed EverEmber Online launches today

    
25

Just because an MMO is launching in 2015 doesn’t mean that it is necessarily some ultra-gorgeous, physics engine-happy affair. Sometimes games look to the past rather than the present for inspiration, which is where we find EverEmber Online as it releases today.

Looking as though it would be perfectly at home on the Super Nintendo, EverEmber Online combines old-school looks and a hefty dose of charm. This MMO presents players with an open-ended sandbox with no guided quests. “If you are in the mood for an old school MMORPG similar to that of RuneScape and Ultima Online, then this is your type of game!” the team posted. “You are free to travel around, explore, fight, meet new people, and progress through the ranks.”

The developers said that the launch will coincide with the start of an in-game holiday event.

Sythalin BritoBruno Avarius XanwardSongsteel I’m not defending against anything, it wasn’t criticism directed towards me. I’m establishing something that most devs should do.
If you react poorly to bad feedback, letting it getting to your skin just because it’s bad feedback, how the hell will you react to the rest of the shit that gaming communities flings towards you?
The problem isn’t answering back, is not being able to be above it, and be sure that your game speaks for itself.
I’m not saying that the bad feedback was correct, nor that the guy throwing it was right. But you don’t fight a tantrum with another tantrum, you give the players hope and professionalism, so they feel safe in your product.
If you can’t, find a friend to do some PR for you. Or ignore it. Or answer it without getting baited. It’s really not that hard.
There’s a reason that most companies do PR. Because if emotions are allowed to run rampant, communication gets worse and everything becomes a mess.

BritoBruno Sythalin Avarius XanwardSongsteel So wait, I wanna make sure I have this straight.  I propose that it’s okay for people to defend themselves against posts and that’s “wrong” in your eyes.  Meanwhile you are defending against my post and that’s “right” (no, being a dev has no bearing on this since I’m referencing the HUMAN BEING, not the JOB TITLE).
The hypocrisy is delicious.  Keep em coming.

Sythalin Avarius XanwardSongsteel Welcome to the current age of the Internet and MMOs.  If you don’t cater to every single person or say nothing but nice things then you’re just “salty” for not taking shit talk.

ClassicCrime An Overabundance of Cats I would just like to say as a dev from EverEmber that I believe in the incident you were talking about the user was actively encouraging people not to play and telling people to leave our game. A bit different then helpful advise. We always love advise and suggestions at everember. We don’t love when someone comes from another game to trash on us. Sorry if it came across as anger or whinny.

An Overabundance of Cats ClassicCrime Mhmm, I can see how it’d be really frustrating to get the kinds of criticism some people were giving on something you just made for free and for fun, but seeing an argumentative and easily offended developer, anywhere, just really doesn’t encourage me to put any time into their game lol. That’s the type of developer I’d be concerned might make some stupid decisions at some point out of anger and really screw with people who have made time investments in the game

its apparently not an rpg maker game, just using the art assets. I actually really wanted to check it out, but I had the black screen issue and didn’t really feel like trying to sort through the steps to troubleshoot it, so I think I’ll wait for an actual fix.

I will mention though that while looking through their forum, my desire to play REALLY diminished when I saw the dev’s inability to respond properly to criticism. He probably think he’s justified because it’s something they made completely for free, but I don’t think that makes it okay for a dev to act like a whiney little child. It makes them look seedy as hell and untrustworthy, and they do accept donations so in a way they kind of are asking for money.

Sythalin Avarius XanwardSongsteel Wrong. Devs should be able to answer as Devs. Develop a thick skin, and ignore bad feedback. DON’T ANSWER BACK.
Your line of “human beings standing up for themselves” is what allows forums to become cesspools of flamewars. If a Dev is completely sure of his work, he doesn’t need to defend it. Let the game speak for itself.
It was a terrible answer, pure and simple.
