Inspired by classic online games, Noble’s Land takes a retro approach for its art style. Designed to give an old school feel with current technology, Noble’s Land takes players back to the golden age of persistent online gaming. Where one decision could end in massive losses, or massive rewards.

Noble’s Land has a large world which is broken up into different sized islands. In order to explore this world you’re going to have to use a few different methods of travel. When you first make your character, and for the next few hours, traveling by foot will do just fine. Once you have proven your worth on Quarantine Isle you’ll be sent to the capital city, Baile. To get started on your journey you’ll need to find a Water Mount so you can travel from island to island. To travel greater distances on land in less time you’ll want to get yourself a Land Mount.

The Stallions Who Mount The World

All mounts are craftable, tradeable, and collectable items. You can engage in boat-to-boat PVP combat while you sail the open waters. If you attack or get attacked while using a Land Mount you’ll be dismounted and you’ll return to your normal traveling speed. In addition to the standard mounts you can expect like horses, wolves, rafts, and boats you’ll be able to find some very rare, and very unique, mounts. Some of these…. special mounts can be anything from a pig to a dolphin, or inanimate objects like bicycles or inner tubes.

Although sailing was already available to Alpha 0.6 testers, usable Land Mounts are entirely new for all players. This addition rounds out the movement system for the foreseeable future. Players can now reach all corners of the world, some faster then others depending on their mounts. Now that I can put this to bed I’ll be moving onto the next major features, crafting and shops.

Btw, will there be a singleplayer and multiplayer mode?

Noble's Land is a full blown "Retro Sandbox MMORPG", there will be no single player mode. You'll always be playing online with other players.

When NL's time has come and gone I'll eventually release everything together, including the editors and server, so players can host their own. That is of course more then a decade away, I hope.

I'm glad you liked what you saw! If the video you saw was on here I suggest you check out the Alpha 0.4 video on YouTube, you can easily get to it on the homepage.

I'm a huge huge fan of the classic Ultima games style, 4 and 5 particularly. They are some of the games I'm drawing inspiration from, so you saying that makes me happy.

Looks a lot like "Dransik". Do you know that game?

Yes I'm very familiar with Dransik, I played it for over ten years as Noble. It became clear years ago that Dransik was losing support and players. I volunteered to work on it for free and I got a nasty reply telling me to go make my own game, so I have been.

I consider Noble's Land as a spiritual successor to Dransik. Although the artwork looks very similar, which was intentional, the Dransik style originally came from the very old series Ultima, specifically 4 and 5. The artwork I use now is programmer art, I created it pixel by pixel, and I intend to replace it when the game earns some income. It will be the same retro style, just retouched by a professional that knows what they're doing.

Although the base game, GUI layout, and artwork will feel similar to Dransik I'm not making a clone, I intend to take Noble's Land much farther and expand on certain aspects. If you liked Dransik there's a damn good chance you'll also enjoy Noble's Land.

Awesome game! I love this kind of games! Waiting the release date!

Take this as feedback:
Will the game have multiple screen resolutions/size? My eyes are a bit ****** so I can't see well and this kind of game I love is always about small images in a small window, so I can't almost enjoy them, and I know there is people worse... Hope the images are easy to see :/

Glad you like what you see!

Noble's Land is being designed to feel like an older game when you play it, but the technology behind it is current. The game is designed at, and will look best when played at, 1920x1080. To keep things fair for all players any other resolution or aspect ratio scales to fit instead of showing more or less of the play area or black space. Everyone gets the same experience but those that play at 1920x1080 gets the "full" experience.

I myself play at 1440x900 and I think it looks great. 800x600, not so much.

Thanks for replying! I usually play 1366x768, but for indie/pixelated/small characters games I need to lower the resolution because some mix of colours makes me unable to see because of my damaged eyes and when I think about all the people like me who can actually play a game but no enjoy it because of the resolution... Uh, I become mad! (lol nope xD)
Loving old school games with new technologies.
