Hello Adventurers,
I apologize for the lack of status updates on work in progress. But here it is.
Fuji and I are working on what we can when we can.
Here is a list of things left before we can release. We are going to release in 2 phases. Phase 1 is quest log, phase 2 is steam.
Phase 1:
  • Quest Log
  • Server Side - Done
    • Script interpreter - Done
    • Server -> Client Notifications - Done
  • Scripting - 90% done
    • Patron quests and a few stragglers
    • Testing
  • Database
    • Create Data migration script
  • Client Side
    • Interface - working on
    • Synchronization - Done
    • Filtering
    • Configuration Saving
    • Fly outs
    • Mark quests hidden / show hidden quests
Phase 2:
  • Implement Steam in Development - Done
  • Implement Steam in Production
  • Finish Steam submission information
We are open for filter/color suggestions. But realize we are short on space. Right now we filter on difficulty. I am considering adding region/location filtering.

Here is a current screenshot.Gray is finished stage, Green is active stage.Orange is an abandoned quest (example: newbie quests are tied together)

Yes, we are moving encounters around, adjusting drops and modifying rewards for quests to reflect the challenge and the location.

I find red on screen hard to read

:syntax off

Orange is good or just to indulge me an option to just have white text, no colours?

Quest guide would never be high on my list but I absolutely appreciate the effort and the realities of starting with something that isn't too ambitious. Well done guys.

For filter suggetions I would say:

1) Access (eg dragonlands, mukk, darkwing, wurms, gol, vint)
2) Gear (jenkins boots, caiman, titan, BFD...). maybe split that by noob/non-noob gear.

Obviously players play for different reasons but for a Spike player it's only really about those.

I guess by expansion too and dunno if it's really part of the remit but level of mob type kills in that dragon master is used for GDI, demon master for Tserith, elementals for dragons...

I agree with Mangor, the red is not so easy on the eyes. The orange, yellow, and gray are much easier to read.

I know you mentioned Patron quests - hopefully an indication of how many points you currently have and how many quests have been completed?

Zarq has no reason to lie lol. What is wrong with you skydoom? He just laid out what he has actually worked on and what is left to do. Do you want a dna sample and a contract? Can you do the math of what this game probably brings in each month? If you can, you will see its a very low number (which improves your chances of doing the math).He didn't say it was going to be on steam with 2k subscribers on tuesday. This isn't Oneye's show anymore. Like 2 people are doing some work in free time. This game pays NO ONE a salary they can live on each month. Do the math man.

First of all thanks Zarquon for keeping us updated.

Secondly, I'm glad OE is gone. I really hope his "enemy" approach to customer services goes with him. The customer is always right. Let me say that again for those who don't quite understand how to grow a business in modern America: THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT.


I understand that the game is not actually making money anymore. I wonder why this is? I recently composed some of the reasons why I think this game has lost so many subscribers which I hope highlights some of the opportunities - I intend to post it soon. What else can we do to help?

Looks good, as long as the colors don't clash for colorblind I think it should be good. Reason I am bringing it up is because it was brought up with potions in the past and thats why the small icons were added.

Also really cool to see a status update, and it was on my bday too. Too bad I read it a bit late xD
