we are looking to start a high profile game development project. We are looking to create a realistic mmorpg which can compete with 2nd life, and the grand theft auto series. The Game Level we are looking to create a replica of the world we live in, details from town to town. This is very over the top and a huge undertaking but we can do all major cities for a good start.
The Game will have an economy where members can buy/sell houses, and make real money. The money value in the game is a Real money value in Real life. Members can sell objects for a retail price and make money. The game should allow people to go in side and interact with every building as if it was in real life. The Gamers can join the military, Become a hit man, or spend their time in vegas living life by luck. Players can go from country to country VIA Airplane. They can also Drive around, Motor Bikes, buses, and Trains. The money value in different countries in the game should be the same as in real life. The Game Should have an Exchange, and financial district (New York City Replica) which runs off real life money, but in the game.
The Engine i would like to use is Kaneva. The Kind of data read is Server side, Player downloads a Client which connects to a server which holds all the data. Players should be able to destroy objects, and it should affect other gamers.
The Major Focal Points are Realism, Above standard Graphics, Smooth Game Play, Physics, character customization, and Player control over game out come and stats.
The Game has a Budget over $50K, If you think you can do it, im all ears!
