What is Project: Sylorn?
Project: Sylorn is a MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) that is being developed by an independent group of talented individuals to bring their original fantasy world of Sylorn to life.
What makes Sylorn different to other MMORPGS?
Sylorn is developed by a multitude of people including many experienced Online Players and a few fresh faced recruits (along with the public) to give an unsullied look at what is possible in today’s world of online RPG-ing. In-depth discussions have taken place to create many class types and abilities. However, the most interesting difference between Sylorn and other such games is the ability to become a God of your choice (once approved by the Game Administrators), with your own followers and specific powers, vying for influence over people and defending your followers, and indeed your own Godhood from those who would overthrow your rule. City building is also possible, with clans, guilds, religions and races splitting the usual Orc/Demon Versus Human/Elf type rivalries into a melting pot of power struggles.
Another interesting aspect of the Development process is that players and other interested parties can have a direct influence on how the game is developed, especially at this phase. Everyone’s views are listened to with the same degree of respect and interest on the open forums of the game. Always wanted a certain class type or power to be in an online game? You can request it with Sylorn.
When will it be released?
Sylorn is currently undergoing a major re-development, with a new game engine being used to bring forth the Sylorn that we have envisioned. An older version of Sylorn can be viewed on the forum if desired, but the Blitz3D engine just didnt have the capabilities we required to bring our true expectations to light. Hence the difficult but necessary change.
What can I do to help?
The best way to help is to join our forums! You can join just out of interest, but there are a number of jobs available in various departments if you so wish. These positions include Story Development, 2D Conceptual Design, 3D Modelling and Animation, Audio-Production (music, voice acting, sound effects), Game Administration, Publicity, Textural Design, Terrain Design, and others.
Is there a Website I can look at to see the progress?
The majority of the information and development takes place at
http://forums.Sylorn.com. There is a (free!) registration to enter into the main forum, no email verification is required. Feel free to call in sometime! The main website is undergoing a full overhaul at the moment (and is very out of date, I'm working on that myself!) but will be updated at the following web address soon: http://www.sylorn.com
Thanking you for your time.
Head of Publicity Dept.
