Sounds interesting and the city building looks pretty cool.

It's looking like Anarchy Online, but with more sandboxy elements. I like :D

Building placement system looks a bit like the way it is done in Xsyon.

i know right. The aaa developers seee all this indie titles though doing poorly(small pop bas, and low profits) but dont account for the lack of funding (which influences everything) and dont think its a viable genre. But i'm absolutely sure if a aaa sandbox did come out it would be a real heavyweight in the mmo arena simply because there are none and it would stand out

What you said. I'll probably give this a go, though. Still need more info.

agree, looks very good for alpha so far. I like the theme and the weapon skills with guns and NO ELVES! :)

Keep up the good work guys.. this will make the 4th three-factioned PvP game coming out soon which is very good to hear.

just remember to keep the PvP in mind unlike these ones released already that go straight to PvE dungeon grinding for gear/rep

Graphics looks old, and combat system not so different of other mmorpg, but the city building is indeed promising ! Looking forward to see more about that ;)

They need to sub out their Mecha art designs and fashion to Japanese artist to make their game more grand, cool sci-fi.

@Dol

Hell no, the japanese make mechs look laughably bad, and impractical. Come to think of it... pretty much everything they make turns out that way.

I'm glad to see all of these sci-fi mmos pop up, we have been far to long stuck in a gaming genre overpopulated with dragons and wizards. Too bad after Earthrise I'm definitely more apprehensive to play an indie developed game.

Combat gameplay looks awful. That being said, best of luck but after Earthrise there's no way I'll contemplate an indie game like this until I experience a comprehensive trial.

That looks pretty awesome.

Hopefully the graphic quality and gameplay we see are results of the pre-alpha status

Mech Design reminds me of Battletech/Mechwarrior . All hail the innersphere !!!

Looks interesting and similar to another indie game in development: http://www.primeonline.com/

It looks pretty good for pre-Alpha, I don't expect anything great in the combat at such a stage.

Maybe these guys will get a big publisher to provide funds for more polish. It would be nice if there was a little more risk-taking in the genre and backing games like this.

God knows backing the old-school gurus like Garriott, McQuaid, Jacobs and their ilk have proven to be disastrous. Maybe the publishers will wise up and realize they need innovative people in the genre, not ones that just copy the same old garbage that's been around since UO.
