Age of Aincrad is a MMOARPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Action Role Playing Game), inspired by the popular anime series Sword Art Online. To avoid legal problems, we are not making an exact replica of the series, and we are not gathering funds for personal gains. All donations are invested into the project.

If someone asked why we are dedicating our time and effort into this project with near nothing in return, this would be our answer:

"We are unsatisfied by the way MMORPGs are currently created. Right now, most have almost the same code structure, only using different models, levels and graphic styles.
Our goal is to overhaul this idea and create a totally new MMORPG with our own view on what an MMORPG should be.

Exploration, adventure, immersion and fun. These are keywords used by almost every publisher, however they don't appear in the game themselves. Progression in MMO games has started to be defined as grinding through the whole game, then having fun at max level. We do not agree with this, a player should be able to enjoy and appreciate the time they invest in the game from start to max level.

We would like to show the gaming community that a MMORPG can have different mechanics, a different game-play experience. This very idea is why we believe that indie developers like us can create this game.

We have the freedom to take a different path, not one that current AAA developers take today. We are not restrained by a publisher that only wants to make money out of the game and is afraid of utilizing a different approach. The size of the project can become considerably smaller while keeping the same level of immersion, fun and quality that all MMO players enjoy.
That is why we dedicate our time, energy and effort into this project."

So we are here again - two streams passed by since we last updated this page.
I guess the main reason there is an option to post news is keeping the indiedb community up to date on "whats new".

So without further ado - a changelog.

  • We have started to do serious work on Floor 8, 9 and 10 - since those will be the ones we are targeting the alpha version/demo reel with.
  • We did a lot of progress GUI side, we created the login screen with the character creation,
    and implemented them ingame.
  • We revealed some concept art regarding floor 10 and its mobs.
  • We have a new website coming up thanks to our talented web developers.
  • We revealed several soundtracks made by our talented composers.

A showcase can be found on our facebook page!

Looks amazing! Just wondering, are the floors going to be based of SAO or are they going to be thought by all of you developers? For example: Bosses, looks, mobs, etc. Oh yeah, and I think the mouse should be removed from the normal in-game screen. You should maybe make it so that when you open a menu, a mouse pointer appears in the menu box.

PD: Keep up the great work!
