I'm happy to announce that my new MMORPG Star Corsairs is now opened for testing.
Star Corsairs is a browser-based space MMORPG featuring a deep crafting system and real-time space combat. Create an alliance and fight for domination over systems, become the richest merchant of the galaxy or just help the Federation to get rid of aliens.
Star Corsairs is currently in alpha stage and will soon be available as a beta released. Feedback is highly appreciated to fix remaining bugs and just generally improve player's experience.
Alpha & Beta release - Why?
Just like my previous MMORPG Golemizer all development and financing is assumed only by me. As you surely know developing an MMO is quite some work and specially when you do so alone. While there are already many things to have plenty of fun in Star Corsairs there are still many more features I wish to add and I plan to do so with feedback from players.
While the game is in alpha some resets might occur but you will not lose your username, password and alliance. I won't be touching those.
Once the game is released as beta then there won't be any reset but I will still be tweaking stuff, adding new features, improving those already available based on player feedback and so on. As a 1-man team it's simply impossible to explore every side of such ambitious project alone while still working on the development of the game.
So basically alpha=testing, beta=fully playable game with more improvements on the way.
Crafting & combat
Star Corsairs is meant to please both crafters and players more interested in action. Every single component in every single single spaceship must be crafted and can be customized to your liking. While players can still find loot that will upgrade components they will still have to either craft components themselves or buy them from crafters. Players are creating everything in this game.
Have enough of crafting and would rather get into the action? No problem. You can do so at any moment and you are not penalized by your previous play style. You won't be making decisions you might regret later in this game.
Invite your friends and join the action!
