Default The Orb and the Oracle - Official Site Launched

July 23rd, 2008, 01:12
Heuristic Park and Dreamcatcher have launched the official site for their Dungeon Lords followup, The Orb and the Oracle. Not a lot there at the moment but there is a new screen or two and a single wallpaper. Here's the feature list:
  • A massive fantasy world filled with non-stop action and meticulously detailed indoor and outdoor environments. Explore shrines, campsites and country cottages throughout the vast rolling countryside, mountains, woodlands, swamplands and more.
  • An advanced and robust combat system couples with devastating magic spells for a variety of ways to vanquish your foes in real-time.
  • 25+ different classes to choose from and 3 class tiers. Create your character using a combination of 5 classes from the different tiers, opening different skills for each.
  • An epic, non-linear single-player campaign coupled with a multiplayer co-op campaign.
  • Hundreds of weapons, spells, items and rare artifacts to equip and use.
  • A variety of personal quests and missions, featuring a world filled with NPC characters to interact and bargain with.
  • Build your character earning experience, gold and other valuable items as you complete challenging quests. Unlock advanced class types for new depths of gameplay.
  • Designed, written and developed by award-winning computer game author D.W. Bradley.
More information.

Dungeon Lords could have been good. It just needed more content across the board. More NPCs, quests, items, spells, classes, dialogue, monsters.

as a famous developer with limited funding you can make hellgate: London or Dungeon Lords.

Looks like Mr Bradley made the right choice.

I thought this was the sort-of expansion, but that it was kind of stand-alone and that DL2 is on it's way after O&O.

O&O ? Wasn't that the company with the defragmenting program ?

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)

That is my understanding as well.

Eh? So O&O is the expansion? Seems like they're doing a lot of work for just a stand-alone add on.

Anyone want to take bets that O&O ends up being DL2?

I doubt it - but think it depends on sales … if the original sold ~1 million copies for ~$40 each, and if this can do OK for $30 each, why *not* keep rolling?
