I am TheD3X, also known as Dexter or just Dex, and I'm the lead developer of Sirius Online: EMPIRES RISING.
For the past seven years and the following year I'm coding on a massively multiplayer online game, shortly MMOG.
Its my life dream and thanks to a wonderful and talented team, its coming true.
About the Game itself:
Game Technology: Sirius is entirely done in DirectX7. ! I modified it with Motion blur, but I prefer gameplay over High-End-graphics. Most Technologies in this game are self developed, SyStream for example, transfers freshly discovered Jumpholes/Gates and containing systems to the server and spreads it to all players in a matter of milliseconds.
Game Concept: One Universe, No Protection. Imagine a dark, and evil universe. You are a descendant of one of the major factions, Terrans, Cetians or Sirians. You are supplied with a basic ship and can start making money. Be it Mining, to CREATE ships and modules, be it Scanning to EXPLORE the reigns of outer space, be it fighting to COMBAT enemy pirates. Just remeber: In space, you're never safe!
Every Ship has three to twelve expansion slots depending on size. In these, you can fix up weaknesses in your ship or specialize it, but remember: If you approach the enemy with the wrong setup, even a battleship can be shattered by a precise blow of a frigate into the right spot.
Every Ship will be player-built. Every System will be procedurally generated. Every thing you do may have an impact on the universe. Later you can create corporations to build stations in the outer space areas. Rule a System, colonize it, and at the end of the day, why not dock up and have a nice relaxing break at your own personal bar in the station?
