Hello everyone, and welcome to Vizaris!
This post should provide a little more information on what Vizaris is all about. For starters Vizaris is a game about choice - where the player is free to create any kind of character they want and do anything they want with that character, whether that's adventuring with friends, completing epic quests, homesteading in the wilderness, or delving tinkering and toying with complex and rich gameplay as a hobbyist.
Vizaris has it's roots in many of the open world games of the past; but takes special inspiration from the games with many community created mods. We look at the intricate and detailed mods for games like Skyrim, which expand and improve the game far beyond it's original scope, and we thought, "Why can't a game be like that, 'out of the box'?"
So we set about creating the foundations for an amazing role playing experience; and in order to create that experience we also created a special program which downloads updates and new content for the game. We combine that with a super cheap monthly subscription, allowing the game to be very easy to buy into, and giving us the means to indefinitely continue adding content to the game. We don't overcharge for content that may not exist yet, and we don't undercharge preventing us from expanding the game. The subscription also means no more DLC, Season Passes, or Premium/Premium content. Everybody gets the same game.
We decided that instead of doing crowdfunding, we'd simply just make the foundation of the game itself, and release it, allowing the people that want to support the game to get something in their hands, immediately. No closed beta, no supporter rewards, no greenlight campaign. Vizaris is what it is, right now.
So is the game alpha, beta, early access, etc? No. Is it done? No. So what is it?
It's an experience. Vizaris won't ever be done, so there's really no point in marking any stage of the development. Our team of three people are dedicated. We're going to keep working on the game regardless. So if you don't think the game looks that great or has enough content, come back in a few weeks or months. We'll still be here, and the game will be much greater than before.
But if you like the idea of a cheap, ever growing, multiplayer, open world fantasy game, set in a vibrant new world filled with amazing technology and magic, which aims to have more content and in-depth gameplay features than any other RPG... then please consider subscribing and supporting us. Every dollar goes to directly growing the game, and your support and feedback means that we can make the game bigger and better, -faster-.
Thanks for your time,
