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 devlog videos on my Youtube channel.

Current Features:

  • Multiplayer Auction System
  • Thousands of weapon combinations an enchantments
  • Multiplayer combat
  • Mobs
  • Food and hunger
  • A beautiful and diverse world

Coming soon (next few months):

  • Combat against Mobs
  • Advanced combat system features
  • Improved visual effects for combat.
  • Enter-able buildings
  • Mounts

Future Plans:

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

It's finally time to spruce up the world a bit with some nice visual effects. Over the past couple of weeks I've been adding support for visual effects into my engine, and it's all starting to come together nicely!

You can see all of the new visual effects in action in the devlog video below. As always, let me know what you think and enjoy the video! And don't forget to check out the new behind-the-scenes devlog videos on my Youtube channel!

Hey, do you use gluLookat for your 3rd person camera? if not, could the camera code from your tutorial series be made available somewhere? Could really use this for I game i'm starting up on.

Have a look at my 19th OpenGL tutorial, it will take you through all of the camera code and explains all of the calculations in detail :)
