Harmonia - An Online Tactical RPG + Roguelike + MUD
« on: August 17, 2012, 08:17:01 AM »
I'd like to share the latest development build of my upcoming game Harmonia.  It's been under development as a hobby project for roughly five years now, but I've recently begun working on it full-time.  I'm looking for people to test play, and give feedback - especially bug reports!

- Download page for Harmonia v0.0.1a (Windows / Linux).  FAQ included below (Mac OSX coming soon)

From the website:

"Harmonia is an online fusion of Tactical RPGs (Shining Force), Roguelikes, and text-based MUDs.  The game will play like a combination of an RTS and MMO - you command a small band of heroes to form a large force with other players, then go on quests to face-off against huge armies.  Rewards for completing quests include access to new character classes, races, abilities, and flair for your army.

"It's also an engine where you can modify anything in the game's scripting environment, create new content, and host your own server for others to play.  Upon release, the server and all of the game's assets will be open for editing.  If time permits, we'll provide a wealth of documentation and tutorials."

You can read more about Harmonia on our website.  Feel free to check out more videos on YouTube, follow the Twitter feed, and follow activity on Facebook.

We need your support!

If this looks like a project you'd like to support, Harmonia has jumped on the Kickstarter bandwagon until September 8th.  The funding is to finish the new 3D client, hire a team (artist, composer), overhaul the UI, and develop more playable content.  Spreading the word is support enough if you'd rather not back the project.

Have fun :)
