Areum will be a 2D top-down medieval fantasy MMORPG. We want the game to be like playing a multiplayer version of classic RPGs such as Lufia, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, etc. Movement will be tiled based, but everything will be real-time rather than turn based. This includes battles, so there won't be a separate battle screen.

That's about as much as we know at the moment :) We are currently at the start of pre-production, so there are infinite possibilities at the moment; a lot of different ideas are being prototyped. We occasionally livestream as we work on the game. When we're live, drop on in and say "hi" :)

We have reset development, so we are now back in the planning stages for Areum. No progress was lost, so don't worry about that! But we jumped into pre-production a little too early, and wound up being a bit lost as to where to go next.

I am currently working on the design for the game, and will be livestreaming it! We are over on Twitch.tv or you can watch using the embedded player at the bottom of this post.  If you have any questions or anything else to say, please feel free to use the chatbox on the Twitch channel. I will be monitoring it and responding as quickly as I can, although Twitch.tv has a ~30 second delay so my voice responses might be a little late. Above all else: Please enjoy the stream!

The stream will last until 5:00pm PDT. However, we have additional streams planned, so please checkout the schedule on our Twitch.tv channl for the most up-to-date streaming information. You can also follow the channel to receive email notifications when we go live.

I really enjoy all the games by ifthensoftware, starting with loradon. My only real complaint is how their games are always left hanging, usually right when they begin to get really good, just for a whole new game to start. Personally I'd really love to see Volund go somewheres. Will this game be any different, or will it just stay in developing forever, for a new project to take it's place?

Howdy! The game caught my eyes, huge fan of 2D MMORPGs sadly most of them suck. I've got a few questions. Will you be implementing a paperdoll system? What kind of character customization can we look forward to? Armors? Hairs? Weapons? What kind of combat system? Point to move/attack or more of a keyboard action type?

Thanks for the information in advance!

There likely won't be a paperdoll system, at least not to start with. There will be armor and weapons, and probably also different looking characters. Combat won't be based on an auto attack; you will have to tell your character to make each swing. The keyboard will be used for the most part. It will be similar to one of our other games, Volund, which you can checkout here: Volundgame.com

Ok, so I created new Towns, Zones, and PC features to hopefully increase the costs: Individually, each feature was far too small
