I played the game for a while a couple years ago but quit mostly because of "the" management. The title had some unique features that I liked, and the community was great but didn't last very long.

Seems if they are going to Steam they could offer some Steam achievements with it. Just say'n! 

Achievements are not easy to do; especially for an MMO. Also, just because a game is on Steam, doesn't mean that it has to have them. In fact, the majority of games on Steam don't have any achievements.

 

When Blizzard added achievements to WoW, they said it was very easy contents to add, therefore we should expect a lot of it, if it got popular. But appearently it's way out of your league.

There are only 2 reasons why the majority of Steam games doesn't have achievements, and it's directly related to what happened after Valve opened the flood gates:

1. There are thousands of crappy indy games, most seems to have a microscopic budget, and barely any devs.

2. There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of games that are much older than the achievement system. These games are mostly added to Steam with no updates whatsoever.

For newer games, almost every AAA title on Steam has achievements, and you know it. I have never seen any devs (apart from you) claiming it's not easy to add it.

Sorry to break it to you, but you're wrong. Just because you make an assertion, without any basic of fact, doesn't make it true.

The very notion that "almost every AAA title on Steam has achievementsis the sort of statement that tends to lead to arguments, because it's blatantly false.

As I said, achievements are not easy to do; especially for an MMO because of how they are designed. It has more to do with the game, than it does with SteamWorks. But you're not a developer (if you were, you'd know this), so I don't want to waste my time explaining it to you since you're just going to argue anyway.

Yowzers... Honestly thought this game was gone.

Is Derek Smart still heading it up? I have always enjoyed his posts.

Nope, still running. The game is self-sustaining, so there is really no reason to shut it down at this point. It's not like we have millions of dollars in overhead like those other games. Right now, we're implementing Xsolla since Zeevex, our in-game payment processor is going out of business. Once that's done, the Steam release will go live.

We even did an expansion pack  which was released last year and I'm thinking of doing another one which will mostly be a graphics update.

And yes, I am still overseeing it; which is i) why it's still running ii) it's coming to Steam

 

TBH Derek, I know that you get a lot of grief, but kudos to you guys for keeping this going.

It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but what MMORPG is? 

Best of luck to you and Quest with it.

Thanks.

As you probably know, my own games have been going on for years, and I tend to update them, do sequels etc. Since I took over Alganon in 2010, that hasn't changed for me. Which is why we added a lot of new content back in 2010 (the re-release) and I had an expansion developed and which was released last year.

The game doesn't have a large team that's burning through millions a month, while not earning millions to justify its existence. That's why most of these MMO games get shut down because of manpower costs, operational costs, bandwidth costs etc.

I always said that I would keep Alganon going for as long as I could. So I have been doing that since 2010. Yeah, things could be better, seeing as it is still struggling to grow, but it is what it is. My bringing it to Steam was in hopes that new people will discover it. Though, for the most part, since the Steam forums went up, I've been battling the usually nonsensical bullshit: it's a WoW clone. That never gets old. :(

 

Ah OK. I was confused there for a minute :)

Graphics update = expansion pack?

Lmfao!

 

Not sure why that's funny. You do realize that most expansion packs, including new game content, usually include lots of graphics improvements and enhancements, right ? So yeah, that's what I'm talking about. :)

Any way to bring this up from the Steam client?

I don't understand the question. The game is available directly from inside the Steam client

Is that what you were asking? Or are you have problems bringing it up in the client? Try that page or just search for "Line Of Defense"

If you are talking about the game docs, yes, they are accessible from the Steam client as well as in game and on the website.

Which is why when we did the free play weekend, I was surprised by people complaining about not knowing how to play. Which is why I wrote this blog post about that.

wait .. this is a shooter, and requires a lot of reading? I usually read novels, not game manuals, and certainly not shooters. Is there a tutorial or something?

Don't mind me .. i guess i will pass. As pointed out before, I can always play PS2.

It doesn't require a lot of reading. Just some reading. The entire manual is online so you can see for yourself. In fact, the manual is smaller and less complex than PS2. Go look see for yourself.

The gameplay is straightforward, no tutorial needed; though we are planning on doing one. Plus it's pure PvP.

there another great game called PS2 :)

Yes - of course. But you do realize that 1) it's over two years old now 2) it is not getting a refresh 3) nobody is making these kind of games anymore, right?

 

It's that time of the month again, and this time we're opening up the CBT to more people as the game winds down to it's final late Summer launch.

We expect to unlock vehicles and aircraft as the last bits for testing. There is currently quite a bit to run through, due to the game being content and feature complete.

If you want to get a free F2P Starter Kit, sign up here. We send out Steam keys on the Friday ahead of a build release.

Please - please - understand that this game is not everyone and you are required to do quite a bit of initial reading before getting into it. You may not like it, and that's OK.

There is an extensive FAQ which answers a lot of questions; and the game's entire asset dB is also online. Both are updated regularly.

You can read how far the game has come, all the new stuff etc.

Lots of screen shots and videos also online, with new ones added at each build milestone. 

The CBT sign-up is not permanent. We run it for a few days, then shut it down and purge it. So once we pick the new people this Friday, ahead of the upcoming build, if you didn't get a key, you can try again next time when the CBT link goes back up. We tend to do this one or twice a month.

Yeah, that was the original announcement trailer. For more movies, shots (including a new batch* out today), please check out the website at http://lodmmo.com

http://lodmmo.com/galleries/14-13-06/

Actually it has been playable on Android (phones and tablets) for almost a year now. The game is finished and playable on all the platforms listed on the game's official website. :)

The individual links on the website are not active because, well, the game is not going to be released until week of Feb 1st on all supported platforms.

Oh, and comparisons to XCOM are ill-conceived. :)

 

New screen shots are up. Similar ones from the other bases coming soon. Enjoy!

I like the art direction in this game.  I'd play it if others did as well.

I think that is the real problem with this game...

Yes - that it is. We ended up in a Catch-22 situation once the game hit in 2009 and people realized the mess that it was in.

Some people would come to check it out, play for a bit - not see a large pop - then leave.

Some would come to check it out - not see a large pop - then leave.

That is the same story with all MMO games.

However, what most people fail to realize is that the fun in an MMO game is not how many people are playing it, but how many quality people you can find to play with. In the case of Alganon, those who stay (or come and go so every often) are quality players who really like the game, have helped us a great deal to fine tune, tweak it etc.

My approach with Alganon has always been the same approach that I take when making my games. You either like my games or you don't. You can read more about this in two recent interviews over here and here.

My approach has not changed because I believe that if you don't get greedy and try to win everyone, but instead focus on the those who are buying and playing your game, you will end up building a core audience that eventually leads to profitability. You can't win everybody. If you can get by with 100 gamers, there is no point in killing yourself trying to get 200 because the end result is you will neglect the 100 who are your core audience. This is even how all monetization works. You give out something for free and charge a little for something. In the end, you will have 2 people buying and 8 other freeloaders.

 

Yeah, around here - we just ignore them.

There is also a new dev blog explaining where we are, what partiially led to this delay etc.

If you really want to get a feel for how space combat in capital ships works in my games, please grab a copy of Universal Combat CE from my website at http://www.3000ad.com

You could also try the freeware Universal Combat, but there were several updates to the flight dynamics since that one, so the experience between UC and UCCE is vastly different.

In GCO,the focus is on hard-core gamers only. It pretty much takes off where my UCCE game left off but with tighter controls, much - much better graphics and ALL the crazy hardcore gameplay that those BC/UC are notorious for.

Thanks.

GCO is my next (and final) game due out in 2014. LOD was just a stepping stone and most of the tech developed for it will be using in GCO (which goes back to the hardcore Battlecruiser/Universal Combat roots - but made a bit more accessible).

The GCO game is 100x larger than LOD since I'm once again going to populate every freaking corner or the game universe, but this time with detail that I couldn't do in BC/UC games due to hardware and tech limitations. It will be epic.

 

 

My first of many dev blogs is up. This one explains the game world, lore and other stuff that you may or may not be interested in.

 

The Beta access is open to everyone now. Just go to http://lodmmo.com and sign up.

Though there is no guarantee of acceptance, if you are a FB fan of the game, then your odds of getting in the Beta are even HIGHER.

Join the Beta and help us build the game.
