Default Fero - A New Online RPG?

August 26th, 2014, 07:48
Wirezapp Games announced a new RPG on their website called Fero. They unfortunately don't have any videos, or images to share yet.

Each and every world that the player steps into will not only have an entirely procedurally generated landscape and layout, but the way that the story itself unfolds will be entirely unique to that world in addition to being affected by how the player decides to influence it. This means that the world that you step into was created just for you, and the narrative that shapes the landscape around you is constantly impacted by the choices of those inhabiting it (you know, much like this thing called “real life”).

The world, the characters, the factions, the conflicts, the emotions, will all be procedurally (“on-the-fly”, so to speak) generated, making every single detail about a world that much more personal to the player. But there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to share this experience with a friend, of course you’ll want to live this amazing journey with some buddies, comrades and allies. That’s why we are going to be allowing you to bring your friends in to explore your world with you, and stand by your side when you want them. You will be allowed, and encouraged, to invite friends to join you in your world and help shape the massive landscape that you will experience over the course of your adventure in Fero, an adventure that is assured to be groundbreaking, stunning, revolutionary and truly unique experience from the start.

Developed by Wirezapp Games, a dedicated indie gaming studio with some of the most talented and creative minds in the industry fueling it, Fero is their latest groundbreaking RPG. Set in a uniquely, procedurally generated world created just for you, the title revolves around a strong, close community and is rapidly becoming a highly anticipated upcoming title. Release date and opportunities to get your hands on Fero is TBD.


More information.

No that's what they announced the game as so I used it.

Update: From reading the games Facebook page it sounds like either an online MMO RPG, or another Co-op RPG game. How disappointing.

Update #2: I changed the news-bit title.

Here is the games Facebook page with more details, as the press release was vague.

Oh well, now that's NOTHING groundbreaking…. How sad that that this adjective is overused. Plus I really don't like when people brag about an awesome game while they don't have anything "tangible" to show for (just a great idea that story and world will be procedurally generated…). Anyway I think I'm old school or something but I only appreciate when a new game is being announced or being described to gamers in a humble way - i.e. Project Eternity (Kickstarter Campaign) or Divinity Original Sin, etc.

It's not a groundbreaking concept but lately there is a lot of buz about proceurely generated worlds.

There is a early access old school dungeon crawl on steam with a procedurely drawn over world. You guys featured it here on the Watch. You can run forever and never run out of world.
The focus seems to be unlimited random content versus graphics. All the video I have watched regarding PGW'S have featured old school graphics. Nice idea but butt ugly so far.
I don't think its a scam yet-They haven't asked for Kickstart money or Crowdfunding.
