Forging Life announced
Anders Staugaard has emailed me announcing the development of a 3D, first-person, wilderness survival RPG by the name of Forging Life. He is part of a two-man team developing what looks to be a highly ambitious game. Here is how he describes it:
We might be a couple of nerds missing the old days, but when we played Ultima Online many years ago there were no questlines and we were not the “Chosen One” on and epic mission to save the world from evil.However we were never borred. Surviving was a struggle! Getting gear and materials was such a risky task, that people often ended up losing precious gear in the process. Fantasy games take place in the middle ages era, mainly because it was tough and violent times, but also a time where you could get a long way with simple means. We miss games with freedom and opportunities where you can truly choose you own path.If life was like the games we know, where the player is guided through life with little or no freedom to act outside the path defined – the quitting of life, would be substantial bigger that we know it today.Our idea with Forging Life, is that you – you decide your own path…Venture into the world with nothing, and become what and who your want!
So basically, it’s going to be an open-ended and survival-focused game. Their website seems to have fairly regular updates at the moment, in case you want to follow the game’s development. For now, here is some early alpha footage:
