Yup, graphics is very simple, and i couldnt adjust screen resolution.

Also, i had problem with controls.

Anyway, its free (for a while anyway), so no reason not to try it yourself :)

 

EDIT

Screen resolution is working.

In terms of visuals, I find the models pretty basic and alot of the textures are pixelated BUT I do think it looks rather nice, the atmosphere is great - so if you can look past it's lack of technical prowess, you should be fine. Also, a tip: Changing the resolution works, but (I think) you need to restart the client for it to take effect - I have the game at 1920x1080 with texture-filtering and draw distance up and it looks pretty good IMO.

I had enough fun in my trial and wanted to keep playing my Squirrel-DK so I bought the 30-days, I think the games good fun and the worlds really big - it just needs more players. Also, I noticed there's some form of alternate-advancement once you reach lvl 50 - your Exp goes into advancement points to spend on different attributes, which is cool.

I've mainly been questing from hub to hub, as you do - but I went for a (long) run into the wilderness, found some wisps (seems there are mobs around that aren't related to quests) and found they dropped various magic trinkets - this motivated me to explore more, another long run (there's also no map, just a compass - I got lost) and eventually found some elite-mob level 50 ghost-thing... I teleported back to safety.

Anyway, fun times - I do hope more people try this, it's a bit lonely out in the wilderness.

Oh and here's some SS:

I'm going to download it one more time and try running it again, but like others all I get is a black screen, some blips, more black screen, then back to desktop.

Downloaded 1.5, then when I start it tells me to go and download new version which is 1.5. Eh? Anyone has a solution?

No fate but what we make, so make me a ham sandwich please.

Currently I think it is offline. The new build has made it unplayable. I know the dev watched this forum as of yesterday, and I talked with him. So, please fix the client!

hello guys, I made an account just so I can post here.

 

The game is really good, although understandably raw and unfinished. I cant say much of this game, its just wonderful for my tastes.. I hope developer gets to consider other business models.. maybe go free to play with Item mall, or sell the game initially.. just do not sell game time, that's a major turn-off to potential players, besides im at lvl 33 with less than 10 hours of play, with this rate of levelling, people may find their 1st subscription their last too .. or lessen the amount you have to pay monthly, $15 is just going on toe to toe with WoW or other P2P games.. this game is so good (IMO), it just needs more players and a few core functions missing..

 

I hope this game gets:

Map with coordinates( Game World is insanely huge)

World Chat

 

sorry for this not so well-constructed post, my mind is just not right atm..

 

IGN=Sirkkong(currently lvl 33)

You're level 33? Awesome, I'm level 21 atm - my IGN is Forthelm, maybe we'll run into each other in-game. Also, you can use the command /who all to check for other people online :) as I imagine the chances of actually running into someone in the huge map would be quite low :P lol

But I agree it's a good fun game, hopefully more people will start playing - I'm really enjoying it.

This thread is weird. Any time anyone gets into the game and talks about it, it sounds just like a developer talking about their game stating the development team is small, they have been working on it for 12 years, everything was a breath of fresh air and super polished. Everyone also has relatively low post counts. I'm really intrigued by this game, wondering if anyone has actually physically tried it and is willing to post a screenshot or two.

 

EDIT: I just saw the youtube video of gameplay in the other thread. I'll check that out.

nope.. well i think im the first guy who got to 50.. and the game is not even a week old.. if you read my earlier posts, I was suggesting a change in their business model, and the low post count simply means I created an account here just to post, since the game's website doesnt have any forums.. if you try the game, you may not like it though, because it kinda gets repetitive, but I love the feel of the game, just me though lol. glad im through over those repeating quests :) now to look forward to advancement points :). go ahead please try it

I've been around here since 2008, just haven't had a lot to say. :)

Mostly, I post in game forums, instead. I'm trying to squeak up here, as well, though, since games may come and go, but hopefully mmorpg.com is forever. So many of my new game discoveries are found via this site.

    I also would love to get in game... Currently awaiting a new version or a fix to my "Download the latest version" issue at start up. If anyone gets the down low please post it here since we don't have any "official" forum to follow (that I know of)

just DL a new one in the website.. they update the game like everyday. and dev told me they intended to that than the conventional auto-patch system because they dont want the server to lag. so you get the newer version offline or  not in the game server to be more precise. that's what they said though lol. still better to autopatch rather than dl it everyday..

It happened to me a couple times.. what I figured out is if you just delete the old zip and reinstall it will update.  It likes to run previous versions, even if you download a new one.

The entire file is relatively small 266 mb and you are in game.

 

It has fast load times, simple, yet pleasant graphics.  I have been playing a few classes.  Got to 50 after Sirkkong.  Still enjoying myself and working on the advancement.

I'm interested in this game as well. Perhaps those interested here might want to form a guild or something, so the world isn't so empty?  Or at least we could all start characters in the same starting area.  I'm downloading currently.

I have to say actually, I'm kinda interested in a sub game again. I never liked item malls, where I think I ended up spending more money quickly, only to change games shortly thereafter. But to each his own.

    Hi guys... Thanks for the help, Zaraath...your advice got me up an running.. So far THE has really exceeded my small expectations for the game..  I started a Frogman Necromancer and it immediately feels like a big, open, sand box.. You can definitely feel the "Everquesty" influence, which I adore...the art style is quirky and a nice change... All that said, I dropped the 15 bones for a month of time....not a hard decision to make, honestly..lol.

  So, I being that I'm playing Frogman...it appears that most folks in game currently are on the other side... Can we sill chat? Group? guild up? I'd like for find out....look me up in game..the name is "Skorm". 

  Hopefully the devs are seeing our need for a forum, as well....being that they seem to be pretty well involved with the player base they likely do.  Til then...watching this thread!

So I'm in game playing now.  It costs 15 bucks through paypal but it's a one time payment, doesn't set up a recurring payment.  The game is very basic and indie to the core, but it's kind of fun.  Graphics original EQ quality.  If you want to try something different give it a try but don't expect AAA quality
