Project Gorgon swaps in new animation system, lays foundation for VIP program

Swish.

Despite not being officially launched yet, Project Gorgon is already tossing out one system to replace with another. This week, the team announced that it swapped in a brand-new animation system that allows for more additions and improvements to how game characters move — and dance. You can even collect new dances during your adventures.

“Certain NPCs in the world now have unique dance moves,” the team said. “If they choose to dance, they’ll perform their move. If you dance along with them (and your Interpretive Dance skill is 10 or higher) you will eventually learn their dance move. The amount of time it takes to learn the move is random, but usually pretty quick.”

The March 25th patch added a VIP tab as part of the preparations for a future subscription program, “dramatically” improved performance on lower-end computers, and made a first pass at a “head look” feature for player characters. There’s a lot of other items in this beefy patch, so give it a look.

The crowdfunded game has been in a state of early access launch since 2018.

I may check it out. Had less free time for mmos lately but this weekend will be mostly free

So does look less dated and janky now?

Nope. And most likely never will.

Yeah not unless they do another round of crowdfunding to specifically aim at funding an artist, but that’s sort of what the initial crowdfunding was supposed to include.

Well…that’s disappointing. If this game had GW2 caliber graphics, this could rival a lot of triple “A’s” currently out there, IMO.

I’m not sure a game with that kind of budget could get away with being this weird.

And no one would ever know until they try.

We can’t even get a AAA mmo made without kickstarter these days. I don’t think there’s much hope for a super pretty project gorgon anytime soon.
I wish things were different

I get that. But I’m not so sure about the /Kickstarter business, as I more sure that there’s simply no will there to do it with the larger companies. ArcheAge and BDO came closest to this, before those games got revamped for more commercialized products. So there’s certainly trend there that views this as a risk…

…but that doesn’t stop me from holding out a slimmer of hope.

But as it stands now, the graphics the way it is for this game, is likely going to be no sell to many. /sigh

I think it’s a team of 2 people. The game is amazing for the resources used.

I tried it out and thought I threw away $30 on a steam sale. I got the COH type feels for it. The community is genuinely a handful of fun, game updates often and lots of talk about systems and how things get implemented by the Devs. My wishlist grows and I do see myself paying / subscribing when the time comes. There is still plenty of need for fixes, enhancements and polish, but every game does too.

I am a cursing deer or a rabid cow at times in the game.

To be clear though, CoH graphics are certainly dated…they’re not that janky.

Don’t tell Bree about the inventory spreadsheet.

Special Reports:
In the ” Special Reports” section of the VIP panel, you can export a lot of information about your character and the items you have in storage.

There are a couple of reports and formats depending on what you need, including:
a spreadsheet (.csv) of every item in every (non-shared) storage vault
a JSON file with similar information about your storage (for programmers)
a JSON file with information about your character

Now Bree will have to play just so she can export her spreadsheets.

The horrrrrible inventory system in the game is why I left after trying it out for a week or two. I was given 100000 crafting items and 10 different places that only held 10 items each…. Oi. Such a hassle.
