Title: Dark and Light?
Post by: Scipion on March 19, 2005, 07:59:01 am
Has anyone ever heard of a game called Dark and Light? It too was supposed to be revolutionary and I remember it had a lot of stuff that was, but so far it hasn't seen the light of day. I wonder if it died in Beta?

Yup, that's it. I wonder how far they've come along. I was always liked their idea of a MASSIVE world with real interactive terrain, seasons, and weather.

Looks interesting. I think it has a lot of potential.

Looks like we've got one of them fade-aways.  :-\

Oh well you'd have to search under "Kronvet" and it dissapoints me there's only 4 threads left with me in it.

It does look as though it has potential, but from what you said, I won't exactly get my heart set on it.

I wonder if it's like TES series.

I hope they updated the graphics of the characters, they used to look like the User in the first season of Reboot.

Is it yet another MMORPG or a single player game?

It's a MMORPG. I don't know about this game, it seems like it's suffering from EQ2 syndrome, in that it's trying so hard to look realistic that nothing in the game really looks incredible... just incredibly average. It also looks like the game's been pushed back all the way to the end of the year.

Scheduled for 2003, then 2004, then april 2005, the release of Dark and Light, first Reunion online video game, has been delayed once again to the end of the year.

The company NP cube, took this step due to technical issues and a new marketing strategy. Until then, internet users are loosing patience.

Then again, who knows... maybe it's a 'diamond in the rough' that simply needs some more dev love. ???

Hmm, I always thought they where just going for a game with awsome stuff in it, but the graphics weren't so hot. The main thing I remember looking beautiful where the landscapes, that's really all I cared about. I'm tired of bad looking land, take a peek at SWG it's all flat with 2-d grass, one of the worst parts of that game.

Hmmm, is it just me, or does the name of the game sound like "Black & White"?

IGn has this slated for May, http://pc.ign.com/index/release.html

Anyone know if this is doing well or whatnot?  Was following it but I haven't heard anything for a long while.

I've been invited to do beta testing, but I never really got to it. It's quite an interesting game, but I'm wondering how it's going to fair compared to Guildwars..

I have been in the closed beta since.. Yeah, I do not even remember. The coolest things are the dragons.. Man.. Just flying around in that MASSIVE world (I really mean massive) I do not know why, but the servers are down, and there have not been any updates for months now...
