This is Socuwan, a game which in 2017 will be an MMO of epic proportions! Craft, skill and battle your way to fame and glory in a world that is heavily based around PvP. However, this is no ordinary RPG...this is an mmorpg with a massive twist and a game-play like no other! Unfortunately I cannot reveal what this special game-play is quite yet, so watch this space!

The game is written in Java and uses opengl. Currently I am the only developer but will be putting together a team later this year. You can watch weekly dev diary videos on my youtube channel.

Current Features:

  • Multiplayer Auction System
  • Thousands of weapon combinations
  • Basic multiplayer combat
  • A few simple mobs
  • Food and hunger
  • A beautiful and diverse world

Coming soon (next few months):

  • Improved magic and ranged attacks
  • A huge graphics update adding skyboxes, water, and much more!
  • Combat against Mobs
  • A world editor, meaning that creation of the world can begin!
  • Groundbreaking game-play ;)

Future Plans:

  • Co-operative skilling
  • Mounts
  • Clans
  • Chat system
  • Guilds
  • Ranking system
  • Player owned houses
  • And the big reveal...

Enchanting is finally in the game! This week's improvement to the weapon system allows you to enchant your items with up to 3 enchantments, each of which can give you special abilities or extra defence. There are also multiple tiers of enchants, meaning that in the future it will be possible to upgrade your enchants to a higher tier.

Although I haven't yet added the actual mechanics of enchanting your weapons, it's already possible to buy and sell enchanted weapons in any weapon shops. Enchanted armour is also available in some armour shops.

To check out the new enchanted items and to see the cool new icon effects just have a watch of the devlog video below. I demonstrate the system and show some of the enchantments in action. Thanks for reading, and enjoy the video!

As I recall your skybox is done just using two layers and fading between images to get the day/night cycle right? It might look/work a little better if you made it work off 3 layers one for the sky color, one for the sun, and the last as a cloud layer. that way the clouds wouldn't change with the time of day. you could then also have stars at night that get covered with clouds randomly and other things like more dynamic weather ect.

@JayJeps ...I'm not really sure what's going on there, but if you send me an email about it maybe I can help further :)

@JayJeps You definitely don't need to use a cube map for a flat reflection plane, and you shouldn't have to change the camera position...
