THE OLD SCHOOL MMO RPG RETURNS
Do you remember Ultima Online, early days of Everquest 1 or other games from that era?
Do you remember the days when MMO Role-Playing Games were actually about RPG, deep immersion in the game world and a community of like minded players?
We teamed up to create a new old-school MMO RPG which brings all that back.
World of Midgard is a multi-platform, old-school 3D MMO RPG core game, the kind you used to enjoy in the past, now about to be brought to your Mac & PC and mobile devices (Android, iOS).
All players will play on the same servers.
How many times you wished to be able to take your PC or Mac game with you?
Well now you are about to be able to.
Because of long apple approval times iOS beta version has still old user interface. We plan to have Linux beta version next month.
Guys and Gals we need funding to make HD graphics upgrade (HD textures) so game can look awesome on big Mac & PC monitors, and on best tablets&phones.

"And you've seen a lot of them offering to let you play on both mobile devices and on your desktop...
Wait, that part is kind of new. And if it appeals to you, you should probably take a look at..."

"It's crazy what we're starting to see on mobile devices as the performance gap closes more and more with each iteration of mobile technology."
"Back in the day when I was playing EverQuest, Dark Age of Camelot [...] I never thought I'd be playing something that looked even remotely similar on my phone. Enter World of Midgard..."

"There are dungeons as well as raid dungeons, PvP arenas, mounts, gear sets, quests, lot and lots of items and pretty much everything you expect to find in an MMORPG. This one is also cross-platform compatible..."

Check those fan-made videos and see for yourself how great fun people are already having from the beta version.
World of Midgard offers rich, amazing, full 3D fantasy world, together with full support for factions conflict, factions battleground, rated arenas, 10-man raiding system, and more.
On plot level, World of Midgard focuses on a conflict between the two warring faction, the Alliance and the Fury, the struggle between them, and also their fight against a common enemy, the Swarm.
The game has a deeply immersing lore, which tells the story of the past of World of Midgard’s heroes, the battles they fought, and the tale of the Schism, the Swarm, Survival & Conquest, and the Treaty of the Fallen Oak. Those who want to find out more about the game lore should check the link that enables the download of the book.
During your journey through the game’s world you will immerse yourself in a world inspired by Norse mythology. There are 6 playable character races: Human, Elf, and Dwarf belonging to the Alliance, and Orc, Dark Elf, and Blood Drak belonging to the Fury. In addition to selecting a race, you can choose from 5 different classes, which represent a unique style of the particular player.
The classes are: Confessors, Fighter, Mage, Rogues, and Templar. We plan to add a Ranger class next year, but your help can make it possible much faster. The game world is already huge, but it will grow even bigger with each content update -meaning more quests, more zones, more dungeons, more mounts and more kick-ass gear sets.
And, have I mentioned that while the whole leveling game play is fun, and includes hundreds of quests in open world, solo dungeons and 5-man dungeon leveling system, the game really focuses on end of the game experience? It’s true! Therefore reaching the level cap is just the beginning of the real core game experience, which includes a very unique end-game 5-man dungeons, 10-man raids, battlegrounds, and rated arenas.
Why do we ask for help?
When you look on current version of the game on big screen like Mac or PC monitor, texture are not impressive because they were originally meant for small phone or tablet screen.
HD textures would be big Mac & PC version quality jump.
Current mobile textures are 256x256. Mac & PC would be 1024x1024+
We plan to have 512x512 textures on newer tablets with possibility to have full 1024x1024 for top end 9+ inch tablets (like new iPad or coming Google Nexus 10)
What do we need the money for?
We started on HD textures but cost is to big for us to make all of them.
We need to hire graphics designer to make those HD testures.
