Saga of Lucimia shines a light on its darkness mechanics

Like it needs the help.

Upcoming hardcore fantasy MMORPG Saga of Lucimia has two videos up this week, both on darkness. The first covers the basic mechanics around the dark, and in the second, the developer himself nearly becomes lost trying to escape a dark dungeon.

“You can’t hit what you can’t see, and you can’t navigate if you can’t see landmarks or the path in front of you. While the stars can help you get around, if you’re in a forest or dungeon, or it’s overcast, what do you do?”

SoL Executive Producer T.W. Anderson says the team is gearing up for a “huge reveal” at the end of April.

Looking for a job? The Lucimia team happens to be seeking an unpaid community manager and social media manager. The hiring post says the company will consider all applicants but prefers a “photogenic” woman who’s comfortable on video. Lucimia says it hopes to expand the role of women on its team and in its community but warns applicants that the “easily offended” needn’t apply as the work environment and internal humor are NSFW.

It’s always amazing the support we find from within our community, and the match couldn’t have been any more perfect. We’re proud to welcome ElloaWendy to the team, and you can expect to see a lot more of her in the coming months ahead! https://sagaoflucimia.com/community-manager-update/
And oh yeah, part 4 of the darkness series for those interested :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVmPUnwmYjs

You got to be kidding me. I hope other members of the female gender (and maybe the male too) feel that is pathetic enough to not touch the game with a stick.

breetoplay droguul    No one wants to see a no game developer fail, we want to see more success in the industry and you were just trying to shine some light/news on a newer developer.  Hopefully helping it in the end. 

Sadly the game developing sector in particular and the tech sector in general has this immaturity in the workplace at best and at worst flat out sexism and racism rampant issues. Look at the crap happening lately in the Capitol Hill area of Seattle, where hate crimes against minority groups have become far to common. 

  A area once known for its diversity and acceptance of others, was surprised to read about it the other day. Most of the blame coming squarely from the growth of the tech sector in the area. :( The whole “bros before” mental midget mindset is flourishing sad to say. These guys from SoL just radiate that same mentality.

…it should be stated, girls that aren’t “easily offended”.

But, they were making that recruitment post in the name of diversity!  I mean, if you were a young photogenic woman looking to break into the industry with “free” work wouldn’t you want to join a frat-house culture?

Now we all know what the crybaby Dev really uses his tissues for…

Everything they write is drenched in self worship.  I look forward to their failure.  A sausage party of jerks that take pride in being jerks.  Don’t let the “Who me? But I’m so nice!” line of defense fool you.  So many other games to play.

breetoplay droguul Not sure when they ninja edited but now they added a small blurb at the bottom saying they changed the verbiage.

Anyway here is a screenshot of the posting after the first edit but before all the others.

wjowski karmamule Far enough underground will definitely be pitch black.  And, out in the countryside during a new moon is really really dark too.  Ideally a game would simulate a lunar cycle so on a full moon being out at night would be dim but navigable and slowly get darker each night until new moon when you will absolutely need a lantern or some form of specialized magic/tech vision enhancement.

Also?  Just because your copying Brad McQuaid’s design philosophy doesn’t mean you need to copy his management philosophy too.

That could be one of the creepiest and most horrific ways of advertising your position.  Whether it’s your intent or not, it comes off as insulting, derogatory, juvenile and demeaning.  I read this and thought, “work for us for free while we demean you and provide a hostile work environment.”  

I never wish anyone to fail, but… wow… I can see why you are hiring a community manager.  Best of luck and hurry with the hire, it’s needed.
