Majesty plus Diablo plus SimCity plus decent crafting game
« on: August 25, 2013, 06:38:11 PM »
Over the course of a few years i had an idea of a game that would be a worthy successor to Majesty. Majesty 2 was made by Russians who added a good measure of corruption, unrefined rules and clumsy AI to the original concept.

Arcen games on the other hand seem to have a grasp on rulemaking and balancing.

The core concept of this game would be a medieval fantasy settlement sim where you found and maintain an outpost in the hostile wilderness, interact with various neighbouring creature tribes - each having their own economy structure and sophisticated ai, plan the layout of your future town inhabited by resource gathering peasants, crafters who produce randomized diablo-style gear, training facilities for your military ranging from militia to battlemages and temples to the gods who give quests and different boons and curses.

If anyone is willing to take a go at such a game i would offer my assistance at concept design and rule layout free of charge.

Wow the concept seems really interesting. Unfortunately I have no experience in game development. But will definitely ask my friends if anyone is interested in it. Majesty 2 is one of my favorite game and would definitely like some successor game for it.

This sounds somewhat similar to Dwarf Fortress.  DF doesn't have Diablo-style loot though.  It's got a hell of a learning curve, but you can find tutorials pretty easily.

I must agree. It sounds an awful lot like DF, minus the loot. Peruse Youtube, there are several good overviews and let's plays out there. Some of my own, even.
