Wow, thanks for the compliments and the like! I'm thinking of pricing the game as a 'cheap indie' (around E10,- ?) in the end, but I don't want to ask money at all before I succeed in making players play the game for longer periods of time.

Depends a bit on what you mean by 'released', but you probably mean: when will I stop inviting people, and open to game to everybody. I will do that once I succeed in making people play more than just an hour or two. That is, when I have something 'addictive'.

Olvand is in pre-alpha at the moment; the only way to play this now is by requesting an invite at olvand.com, but I should warn you that the waiting list is quite long. The game will go on sale once people start coming back to the game (instead of only playing one of twice).

Both jukeboxes (that's what you mean, right?) and darts are wonderful ideas, although if I include something like darts, I'll probably make it a little different from the real game - I want all the minigames to be unique.

For the spawn places - I have some special ideas for that, but more about that later :).

I think you might be right that giving the portal a bigger territory keeps the problem away longer, so I'm going to follow your advice if giving portals their own territory is really needed.

About the limited distance: enormous cities is not something I necessarily want to avoid, as long as I can make cities look varied. I am actually afraid the other thing will happen: 300 cities on every server with only 2-3 houses. But we'll see :)

Thanks for your comments, very interesting!

Thanks for this great suggestion! I'll have to think about this a little more, but at the moment I'm leaning toward doing it like you said; you're probably right in that it leaves the exploration aspect intact. A counter-argument would be that not giving the conditions would frustrate completionists, but those people would probably use wikis anyway.

And your first RSS feed? I feel really honored :).

Yeah, definitely. Rewatching the video doesn't recreate that thrilled feeling I had during the match at all. But I'm currently composing some battle music, so things will change!

And it indeed looks very daunting (in particular the pro gun I showed), but everybody who tried it understood it in less than 60 seconds or so. So that won't be a problem, I hope :).

Haha, building good bots would take months, if not years. However, I agree that the lack of people to play with is a bit problematic; I plan to add minigames which can also be played alone once I'm done with the city building stuff.
