Hi! I would like to ask you for your honest opinions about a self developed game. Ony two guys are working on it, so don't expect stunning graphics:). This is an old-school game, taking most of it's core elements from old classics like Eye of the beholder, Lands of Lore, and Ultima. The things you should know: the game runs in a browser, so you don't need to download it or anything. Using a fairly new browser technology, it doesn't require any additional plugins, only a browser that can handle a WebGL. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebGL) You should use the latest version of Google Chrome, other browsers aren't so reliable if you want to try it. This is a Pre-Alpha build a lot of things are missing and bugs can still happen, but I think you can get an idea of what we are aiming for in the full version:). If you have any constructive criticism then don't hesitate, we would be thankful if you could help us out, even with your own ideas of what we are missing from the game, or what we should add to it. If, by any chance you are experienced in programming, modelling or animating and you are willing to help, even just a little, please contact us.

hey thats a nice looking game. The graphics are not bad at all. It is working well on my quad core imac i7 using Firefox.

One thing, the steps taken are a little out with the environment, for example aprroaching the female character, she is either too far away or I have gone past her. Same deal with the walls. The final step should leave the player a comfortable distance in front of things.
