The Forgotten Lands

2023 is looking great!

Wow, it’s been a long time since I have written a dev blog. I’d apologize but as a one person development studio for an MMO… well, I’m not going to apologize. I have been doing amateur game dev for 20 years or more. I have had the privilege of working with and on some triple…

A Great Beginning

Wow would you look at that. Just over a month since the last dev blog and here we are again. Crazy! I had an ambitious goal to try and release to pre-alpha closed testing over the Christmas break. Not surprising, between hunting, busy work schedules and the most important thing.. family, well that didn’t happen…

Futures so bright…

I’m just going to stop apologizing for the delays between dev updates… Trying to find Balance between family life, an incredibly demanding work environment and some development cycles often means we don’t have time to publish constant updates every time we add in an item to the game however, it also means when we do…

NOTE: Guys at the time of writing this developer update I have made the decision not to rebrand the project. To anyone who has worked with me on development in the past, Aakrana has been around for over a decade. It’s been a vehicle on a journey of learning, discovery and many great adventures. I…

Traversing Zones – Milestone achieved!

What a journey this network master server creation has been. I’ve learned more in the last week about things I would rather not understand than I care to admit. Right off the bat though I have to say mad props to Vis2K and the indie community around his uMMO offering. Vis and Paul specifically have…

Meats back on the menu boys!

My professional carreer has been front and center for me for the better part of the last decade. I have tinkered around here and there with some indie developments. Working with others to forward their products and sometimes diving back into my own little creative pools to forward my coding and design work. I’ll tell you…

Re-awakening the creative spirits within

I work pretty hard in my 9-5 job. (Yeah right. I wish it was 9-5, more like 7AM to 6PM *bleah) But don’t we all these days… Last summer, out of the blue I get a call from a marketting director at Big World Games. “Hey Mark, how’s it going? This is so-and-so from BigWorld…
