Check out a prototype mission in City of Titans

Developing a game is about developing lots of moving pieces and then finally putting them all together after the fact. We’ve seen a large number of the pieces being placed in City of Titans independently, but up until now there haven’t been many examples of all of those pieces working together as a cohesive whole. The latest video from the team, though, puts everything together in the small form of a prototype in-game mission.

Obviously, nothing you see in this video is finished and there are plenty of placeholders there. But the parts are in working order, at least. Check out the video just past the break if you’d like to see a (very rough) look at how everything will work together while the game moves closer to completion.

Actually, I like seeing these early videos precisely BECAUSE it shows the development process. I like seeing them tackle things one at a time and in the proper order.

This is what “alpha” really looks like.

wjowski Stone Crow It’s significantly better now. And I am actually an Interior *Architect* (or Designer, but Decorators have been calling themselves that lately), which means I’ve been trained to design floor plans. Which is why I’ll be tapped to help both improve the interiors aesthetically AND functionally. Help make sane layout designs happen consistently.

Looks like this game has a LONG way to go. Hope their funding holds out.

Procedurally generated content wasn’t all it was cracked up to be in 2004.

ZNSinger PizzaDoh DugFromTheEarth Exactly. These updates aren’t about MWM getting feedback from their fans and supporters. These updates are MWM giving us feedback on where things stand with City of TItans. As Shadow Elusive pointed out, a lot of us fans are getting plenty of good feelings out of these updates.

PizzaDoh DugFromTheEarth “No fans are going to get any good feelings out of this past knowing the game is in development”

That IS the purpose of releasing these – always have been. Our KS launched near the very beginning of development, and as such we have many people who very anxiously wait for us to give them exactly that, to help them through the long wait. Many many people were convinced it was impossible, we’d be gone in a year, we’d never get half this far. For all of those people who also desperately want a successor to City of Heroes to succeed, we make these videos.

Inevitably when Massively decides to feature one such update, various people who don’t get that, who aren’t really part of that group, end up seeing it and wondering what we’re doing, and for those people it’s a natural reaction. But if you’ll check our more personal channels, like our forums or Facebook account, you’ll see the people these are really for – and just how much it means to them.
