  • GCC’s Grumpy Old Gamer visits the offices of Flying Lab Software

    GameClubCentral.com has posted an interesting article today. It's the first of two that chronicle Grumpy Old Gamer's visit to Flying Labs.

    GCC’s Grumpy Old Gamer recently visited the offices of Flying Lab Software for an onsite interview centering upon their upcoming release – Pirates Of The Burning Sea. This is the first of two articles from that visit, this once focusing upon the company itself…

    Russell Williams – Flying Lab Executive Producer“Our biggest asset is our ambition, almost to a fault...” Russell Williams – Flying Lab Executive Producer

    In order to save myself the long drive to get from the peninsula I live on to Downtown Seattle where Flying Lab Software makes its home, I decided to take the 25 minute ferry across the Puget Sound (inland salt water). As typical to make me go from happy to Grumpy, I dropped from the clear skies on the hill down to the fog covered Ferry Terminal to encounter the behind schedule ferry. Grrr, is this the indication of my day?
    As you will see, absolutely not!

  • What is the Career Story Arc?

    The official site for Pirates of the Burning Sea has been updated with a new Develop Log. In this one we get a look into the process from GavinIrby.

    I've been asked to write a little bit about the process of writing and implementing these missions so our players can get a glimpse of what is going on "behind the scenes," so to speak. Since I don't want to give away too much about the story itself and spoil any of the surprises, I'm mostly going to discuss my own writing process and the things I hope to accomplish with the Career Story Arc.

    My background is in academia, rather than creative writing, and so my process is maybe atypical for a content developer (Luckily, our team has some very talented novelists to act as my editors). I start with hermeneutics (meaning, the interpretation of texts), which is in many ways, the mirror image of the writing process. It may seem strange, at first, to call video games "texts," but they actually conform very well to contemporary hermeneutic theory.

  • Behind the Scenes with ConCo!

    The official site for Priates of the Burning Sea has been updated with another in their series of developer journals. This one takes a look behind the scenes at how they come up with content ideas.

    How do we make our content? Our content department has numerous approaches to how the various stories get made and end up in the game. Some of our key story lines come from our writers. Others the individual designers come up with and they take them from concept to completion by bouncing ideas off each other and off other departments.

  • Not Just Another Spawn Camp

    MMORPG.com has posted another in their series of Developer Journals. This installment talks about five Battle scenarios.

    To some extent, if you've played one MMORPG you've played them all. You wander the countryside, or the office building, or the space sector, and you find small groups of enemies who are standing around waiting for you to attack them. Maybe they charge you as you run by or maybe they react to you depending on your faction standing. They have different classes or attacks or powers that make the combats somewhat different. But there's not a whole lot going on.

    Flying Lab Software, the creators of the highly anticipated high seas MMORPG Pirates of the Burning Sea, today offer you five new exclusive screenshots focusing on life in port. Perfecting the first person perspective is a tough road to hoe for ship-based MMOs, but I think you'll agree that in these screens, Burning Sea convincingly captures the mood of the 1700s Caribbean. Whether your pleasure is pirate or patriot, here's a glimpse at what life is like when you drop anchor and go ashore!

  • Find Out What The Devs Think of AGC

    MMORPG.com has posted a dev diary written by the producer of Priates of the Burning Sea, John Tynes.

    The AGC is very different from E3 -- or at least, from the E3 That Was. It really is a conference, meaning it's nothing but panels, roundtables, and lectures. There is a small exhibit hall but it's full of companies selling middleware and services to developers and studios. No one is in the exhibit hall showing off games in any real way. In fact, the only booth I saw where you could pick up a joystick and play was the Microsoft Casual Games booth, so if you want to fly to Austin to play Geometry Wars, go for it!

    Keep reading to see what else John Tynes has to say and don't forget to stop by the forums at Ten Ton Hammer and let us know your thoughts on this game and all your favorite MMOs!
