Fractured isn’t letting the Unity/SpatialOS squabble get in the way of alpha testing

The drama between Unity and SpatialOS back in January seemed to hold dire possibilities for MMOs that were using both — such as the upcoming Fractured. Fortunately, the spat seems to have sizzled down, and Dynamight Studios said that plans for Alpha 1 testing this quarter are still a go.

Dynamight confirmed that Unity has reinstated the Improbable licenses, allowing Fractured to proceed as planned: “In the end, it was all just a big scare. We are still working with Unity, SpatialOS, and the awesome integration between the two that is allowing us to build an ambitious MMO like Fractured without a AAA-sized team!”

Even better than that, the studio has a lot to show of Fractured’s progress as of late. Six core biomes are being created for the continent of Myr, the 40 or so creatures have been given a wider array of attacks, characters have been “completely reworked,” and rudimentary versions of housing, land claiming, and character progression are being worked into the test build.

That is one of the games that interest me a lot for the future. A lot of good ideas in there

Agree. I like the small dev team too.

I love the concept. I also love the isometric approach, which is pretty rare for mmo’s nowadays. I’m liking everything about this game so far, but like with all of these projects, we shall see.

Yes its one of the things I like too. i was always thinking that 2.5D/isometric usually outline a more fantasy theme

Yeah I have high hopes for this one. You just never know though. There have been a good number of great crowd funded successes, and a good number of letdowns.

I’ve gone ahead and paid into this one to try and help it, just because the concept sounds really nice to me. Plus I’m going to get to be a tiger girl, which appeals to me a lot :D

There have been a lot of games in this sort of area that have let me down but none of them really interested me as much as this one does so I still do have high hopes for how this turns out.

I backed Fractured as well. Considering they are already in Pre-alpha, so far so good. The whole Unity debacle scared me, but I think that will be a non issue.
