    Ah, yes. We were excited to read this article. I hear that the hero engine is to die for. The screen shots look incredible.

    Let us know when the studio has a website. We're eager to learn more. Congrats!

    P.S. Think we could trouble you for an interview? :D

    Very very sweet!!! Draconi has always been one of my absolute favorites of UO past.

    Congrats, Fine Sir! I'm sure you'll do well.

    I will most certainly be checking out what you have in store.

    Not to mention the best and most dedicated to this game than any past or present uo staff.

    I for sure know which MMO I'll be moving onto when UO gets the plug.

    What kind of online gaming was there in 1984-85? lol article says Darrin Hyrup is a 26-year veteran of online games. Pre-Microsoft Windows gaming. Did Hyrup pioneer command prompt text games or something? And by online, does that mean LAN? Haha. Talk about Old Republic. But yeah, congrats to Tim "Draconi" Cotten =) ... now if they can only get Richard Garriott on board ;P.

    That's a very interesting team of people attached to the project . Having a "new MMO set to release by the end of 2011" is extremely optimistic, but I'll be watching this closely, there's a lot of potential for good things based on what those folks have been involved with before.

    If the engine is already viable and mostly complete, it comes down to artwork and design. It is very ambitious but if the foundation is in place, then it's a matter of throwing a lot of animators at it.

    Just seeing Draconi's name on there makes me want to buy it!!! I am definitely going to play only down side is shutting down some UO accounts to do it but I think it will be worth it!!!

    You could do a search for "Idea Fabrik job listings" using Google. It looks like they are looking to fill a number of positions up in Maryland including C++ programmers, 3D modelers, and sys admins.

    ...

    Good Luck Draconi, I look forward to seeing what you guys put together.

    Just keep in mind that we do NOT want "yet another level/raid" game and go from there!

    Scrats Drac!

    I'll be looking forward to more whispers of progress, and put in my earplugs against the odd megatonnage of personal expression.

    :) Fare well!
