38 studios MMO in development "Copernicus"
 
38 Studios | World Domination Through Gaming

Apparently its backed financially by Red Sox pitcher and long time table top and MMO gamer, Curt Schilling.
Comic book creator Todd MacFarlane and fantasy author R.A. Salvatore are also working with Schilling on the project.

I'm thinking this should be interesting enough to keep an eye on it.

exactly

Hurricane Harold 08-29-2008 20:13

Is it going to have interesting, innovative gameplay, or is it going to simply mix up classes and abilities slightly while calling it massive change (ie. nearly every MMO in history)?

Founded by Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling in late 2006, 38 Studios has assembled a team of world-class creative talent to bring to life an epic new intellectual property to redefine conventional multi-player gaming as it exists today, and nothing less.

Viggy 08-29-2008 20:21

Curt's an EQ player as I recall, so by "redefining multiplayer gaming" I think they mean coloring rares pink and epics silver.

Apparently that Todd McFarlane guy is the creator of spawn. And I wouldn't exactly call those concept pics bright and happy. I doubt it's going to be very cutesy

Anguish 08-29-2008 20:27

Uhh Shilling isn't just throwing money at it. He's got a seat on the designing table.

The company thats making it is his company

Falhawk 08-29-2008 20:28

Will have to wait and see.

As far as my thoughts on the concept art being too happy...
The city is too perfect, there's no trash no rats no stray dogs or beggars (a warhammer concept for comparison) Same goes for the cave.

It just looks too clean and the palette is very much like that of WoW. Hopefully the real thing will get a different feel for now it's more of the same.

HaPpY 08-29-2008 20:41

in fact i dont see this game hitting beta before it flops.

Apeman 08-29-2008 20:55

todd mcfarlane and bob salvatore sounds like a good combo to me.

DacTheHork 08-29-2008 20:55

yeah

A huge fan of mmos starting up a company to make one ..

First thing he does is hire a lot of concept people and writers... I really don't think it will go well. Sounds like it will have a ridiculously complex concept and never come to reality.

AcidBurn 08-29-2008 20:59

I used to play EQ with Curt Schilling. He was in my guild, he and I killed Lord Nagafen together. Very nice guy, and he ended up trading a guildmate a signed jersey, ball, and glove, for some in game EQ items. It was funny as hell.

Salvatore was also a very nice guy in EQ, played on his server, had some very nice conversations with him. They have been working on this MMO for quite for some time, or at least designing it, maybe not developing it.

I will be very interested to see what McFarlane comes up with for monsters, and Salvatore writes for a store for their universe. Definitely a game to keep an eye on, and it sounds like they are trying to bring back to the "feel" of EQ, like when you first started. They want to bring back that "holy ****... this world is simply amazing" feel.

HaPpY 08-29-2008 21:08

1% inspiration. like every other failed project.

buize 08-29-2008 21:12

curt schilling is a ****ing EQ newb

AcidBurn 08-29-2008 21:12

You, dont necessarily HAVE to know about game development. When you come up with a good BASE for the game(art, story, themes, ideas, etc) you can then, ya know do that wacky thing called HIRING PEOPLE, to do the actual development. its not like Salvatore and Schilling are the only 2 people working on the entire game and coding the whole thing with no help lol.

HaPpY 08-29-2008 21:16

yes, two people who obviously have no clue about game development. they remind me of all those backyard wankers who think theyre rocket scientists and build spaceships to take them to the moon.

maybe they should get together with our tribestalk "tribes remake project" crowd so they can have an inspirational circle jerk..

Oddiz 08-29-2008 21:19

because game dev is rocket science y'know

I wish Happy wasn't always so sad. :-(

/me hugs Happy.

Cheer up little buddy. Some day someone will make a game you love.

Evil Engineer 08-29-2008 22:00

from the sounds of it they're going to use the Unreal 3 engine and Bigworld

DacTheHork 08-29-2008 22:29

They have been working on this years and the best they can come up with is 5 concept art pictures that are bleh.

In 2006, the company leased 30,000 sq ft (3,000 mē) of office space in downtown Maynard, Massachusetts.[2]

You know I never thought of that. Wouldn't it be cool to be a multi-millionaire like a professional sports star (or whatever) and create your own gaming company. You could have them make any game you wanted and however you wanted it. It wouldn't have to be "marketable" or anything so as long as you paid your employees they wouldn't give a **** and would do whatever you asked. Tribes 4 mother****ers (and a GOOD Deus Ex sequel, and a followup to Anachronox while I'm dreaming).

****ing games suck these days.

The originals could be 300 sqft each

Or they actually got stuff done and this is just to begin building the hype.

actually there are a lot of quality games i like such as most games by blizzard and valve. its when i witness remotely half assed attempts at competing with them do i immediately register my disapproval with the internets and attack any hopeful yet naive optimism.

its when a game is so perfect that i have nothing to ***** about that i'm actually sad. legions and IA have given me much joy :D

HaPpY 08-29-2008 22:59

hell these guys make IA sound like blizzard

I look at it as "odds are it will fail, but you never know".

Keep an open mind, someone somewhere is going to surprise us. I think a game we all know and love did that to us at one point.

Pissing on it right away doesn't really accomplish anything.

CelticMojo 08-30-2008 04:01

OMG side scroller mmo... the art looks like background art for samurai jack.

i can tell itll be a failure already based on the minimal information and concept art alone. in fact based solely on the background of the people involved i'd call it a failure.

-=TTC=-Serpreme 08-30-2008 07:28

I am starting to think monster corps shouldnt be making mmos.
A great idea for an mmo should be starting corporations.

Reggs 08-30-2008 07:56

Todd MacFarlane sucks. For an "artist" he has such horrible taste.
