Title: [Developer Diary 1] What is Maruum
Post by: Mr. DK on December 21, 2015, 07:06:24 pm
Hello Modcraft,

Welcome to our first Maruum developer diary. It is the first of a series of DDs we will provide to give you inside on the development of Maruum. Today I want to talk about what Maruum actually is. This topic will include some lore as well as gameplay info. It will give a short introduction into the world of Maruum. Be aware that all info given can be changed any time in the future.

The world of Maruum:

As some of you maybe recall we haven't changed the map. We decided that we liked the style of the old map so we kept it.


As you can see there are 7 different continents. Each of those have a unique lore and atmosphere. We decided to scrap most of the old maps done by several modders since those contained a lot of bugs or just didn't fit into the new style of Maruum.


At last I want to talk about our first continent that is currently being worked on. Anor is one of our Human themed continents. Its located in the north-east of Maruum and has a moderate climate. The kingdom of Anar is located on far parts of the continent. Although Anar is ruled by a king several noble houses fight for dominance within the kingdom. These houses have a deep rivalry splitting the kingdom in small factions. The player will be able to choose a faction to fight for. With support of this faction he will be guided through the first levels of the game.

That's it for today. Next DD will hopefully show the first ingame footage. We aim to show some screens of our first upcoming zone. So stay tuned for more info on Maruum.

Good call keeping the map. It's nice. Though, maybe adjust Askendor, imo.

Sounds like you've established a really solid direction for the project though. I look forward to see more.

Yes. In the past we have tried to do it open source like.
But as this did not work now a more solid and organiced way :)

Can't wait to see more. I imagine there would be an interesting transportation network for such a complex world.
