Storybricks is a MMORPG toolset game allowing players to make their own MMO game by creating scenarios, editing reactions between characters and composing a complex game storyline.
The game just reminded me of Blizzard’s famous Starcraft and Warcraft franchise, which also come with powerful map editors allowing players to create own games from scratch using pre-made modules. So likewise, players do not necessarily need to be a professional game programmer to use it, but it is a little bit complex and may confuse players who have never tried using the game development toolset.
The producer has just released the alpha version for testing and is waiting for reviews and feedbacks from players. So I launched game and I just saw a town with different NPCs. Each NPC has its own behavior: Inhabitants of the town came up and greeted me; guards patrol on their own. There was a irritable magician there and I could just interact with them. The cool thing about it was that, there were already many interactions that are pre-programmed, so I could do role-playing. For example, if I gifted him a magic wand, he would be happy; and contrarily, if I decided to be angry with him, he would summon a zombie slave to attack my character, and then I would have to zap it. This is the unique thing of the game.
Apparently, this game is still far from complete. There is no plot, no clue, no objective, no actions and no special visual effects like animation of zapping people or casting magic, but the producer is still pushing through the project and just launched the Kickstarter campaign to fund the rest of the game. And I personally will wait for further updates in future, because I think the innovative idea of the game has the potential to change the development of the online gaming.
