So Ditto is still playing ‘Asheron’s Call’ a bit – it’s challenging, playing an MMORPG that started 17 years ago! There are a lot of things we kind of take for granted in modern online games that just don’t exist in Asheron’s Call, like quest guides and such… Today I just ran across the world in a random direction – no portals, no loading screens, just open landscape, mountains, rivers, and the occasional strange monster who wants to eat me; why do they always want to eat me?
I did find a town and talked to some folks, got to know the vendors, etc… – for such an old game, most people are very high level and I just made level 6, but the areas closest to the town seem appropriate to lower levels, so I didn’t get eaten (though it was close, I’ll admit).
So are my fans interested in more of this exploration? Do people want to see more old-school gaming in Asheron’s Call on a regular basis? Or should I just stick to Wizard101 and Pirate101 and do more adventuring there? I’m looking forward to getting feedback, what do my fans want to see more of? Let me know!
