  • "So You Want to be an MMO Developer?" Part III

    MMORPG.com has the thrid in a series of four developer diary written by Nick Parkinson. These diaries take a look at what it takes to be a MMO Developer.

    Where to Start

    If you’re reading this, there’s good news. You’ve probably already starting doing all the things you need to do to be a designer. Bag of Doritos in one hand? Highly caffeinated beverage in the other? If you answered yes, you’re already halfway there. First and foremost, you need to play games. You need to love it, and we’re not just talking “I root for the Bears when they’re winning” love… we’re talking “I wore my Mike Ditka signed boxer shorts to my wedding” love. If you don’t have that, you’ll probably get tired of it pretty quick.

  • So You Want to be an MMO Developer? Part 2 of 4

    MMORPG.com has posted the second in a series of four developer logs by Nick Parkinson. He continues his look at the question So You Want to be an MMO Developer.

    Most development studios work with C++ and maybe some C#. Fortunately, more and more schools (high schools included) are offering beginner courses in various forms of computer programming, C++ included. Take those, see if you like it – it’ll be challenging but if you enjoy it keep going. If you find yourself not liking it at all, it’s probably best to focus on some other area of development as it’s only going to get more intense.

  • So You Want to be an MMO Developer?

    MMORPG.com has posted the first of four developer diaries that will be written by Sigil Games Online's Nick Parkinson.

    In the past four years, we have grown from a modest dozen initial employees to the current count of just over 100. Sigil is comprised of, 33 artists, 30 designers, 13 programmers, 13 customer support staff, 7 production staff, 3 community/marketing staff, 1 very, very angry and slightly off balance monkey, 3 administration staff and management (not to be confused with the monkey).

    As you can see, it takes a big team to make an MMO and we'll have even more by the time we ship. Sigil employs a wide variety of people - young guys just starting out, old folks who have had a lot of experience, and even people over 30. When undertaking a project as massive in size as an MMO one of the challenges in managing a team this large is being able to actually find the right people.

  • Sony Online Entertainment and Sigil Games Online Announce That Guild Mail Has Bridged The Gap Between Gnomes and Dark Elves in "Vanguard: Saga of Heroes"

    In a press release issued today we learn more about the Guild Mail system in the upcoming Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.

    True love knows no boundaries, not even between a stoic Dark Elf male and an enchanting female Gnome. In what seemed like a love destined to fail, this fairy tale romance has triumphed with a happy ending. The young female Gnome Royle, and the Dark Elf Adorin met on Qalia many moons ago, but it was Vanguard: Saga of Heroes’ Guild Mail that allowed their love to truly blossom. Royle and Adorin transcended years of hate between their two peoples to become the hottest item on Telon since the two dwarfs, Brahd and Engelina.
