Age of Aincrad is a MMOARPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Action Role Playing Game), inspired by the popular anime series Sword Art Online. To avoid legal problems, we are not making an exact replica of the series, and we are not gathering funds for personal gains. All donations are invested into the project.

If someone asked why we are dedicating our time and effort into this project with near nothing in return, this would be our answer:

"We are unsatisfied by the way MMORPGs are currently created. Right now, most have almost the same code structure, only using different models, levels and graphic styles.
Our goal is to overhaul this idea and create a totally new MMORPG with our own view on what an MMORPG should be.

Exploration, adventure, immersion and fun. These are keywords used by almost every publisher, however they don't appear in the game themselves. Progression in MMO games has started to be defined as grinding through the whole game, then having fun at max level. We do not agree with this, a player should be able to enjoy and appreciate the time they invest in the game from start to max level.

We would like to show the gaming community that a MMORPG can have different mechanics, a different game-play experience. This very idea is why we believe that indie developers like us can create this game.

We have the freedom to take a different path, not one that current AAA developers take today. We are not restrained by a publisher that only wants to make money out of the game and is afraid of utilizing a different approach. The size of the project can become considerably smaller while keeping the same level of immersion, fun and quality that all MMO players enjoy.
That is why we dedicate our time, energy and effort into this project."

Hello all,

This article will outline and summarise the recent development of the game, allowing the IndieDB community and the new fresh faces who have found this project to keep up with the game's progress.

As an easy approach to help the summary of what we have done for the past few months on Age of Aincrad, we'll start with the alpha testing which commenced on October 1st, 2015. We were delighted to announce that we had officially started the alpha testing process where we have also planned to almost double the amount of alpha testers in the upcoming months.

We released a playable demo for everyone which is a simple FPS camera to let you take a look at the visuals and ambience. This can be found HERE.

Additionally to this, we announced the launch of our insiders' forum. This forum is accessible to all VIP members with a forum VIP package, a few hand picked members whose feedback have proven useful, and alpha testers. More information on this can be found HERE.

We are looking forward to 2016, and you have every reason to do the same! As we still have a lot we want to show you. We have already started by doing:

  • Weekly game development streams.
  • Biweekly development update posts.
  • Posting sections of our patch notes to the public.
  • Hosting a monthly AMA on our official subreddit. (/r/ageofaincrad)

It has been a long year for the project - a year full of hope, progress and new experiences. We would've never managed to get through this year without all of your support and encouragement. Thanks to you all, we have remained determined to continue working on realizing the game we have all been wishing for.

We wish you all the best and hope for your continued support in 2016.

Happy New Year,
The AoA Team

Any idea of the possible system requirements of this game? I just wanna make sure my computer can play it

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

My computer, GTX 750 TI, AMD Phenom 9150e (Low end CPU with entry lvl GPU so it is bottlenecked), 4gb of ram ran the demo on the highest settings really well. Just to give you something to base it on
