Rising Sun (A Japanese Mythology Based MMORPG)
« on: Sep 19, 11, 04:54:12 PM »



Rising Sun MMORPG


Lead Game Designer - Joseph Davidson

Hello All, I have been designing this game for over 8 years and have been working on the GDD (work in progress) for about the last 3 years. I have spent the past 15 years studying the Japanese language and culture. I have a good understanding of Japanese history, mythology, and conversational language. I am currently learning to script in HSL.

I speak conversational Japanese
I have studied much Japanese history and mythology

It is nice to meet you all.

Gambarimasho ne

Just cause you put that I have to say: I suck at reading and writing. I wouldn't even pass a simple Kanji test if I took one. I have spent all my time studying Japanese (about 10 years off and on) by myself and hardly talking with any actual Japanese people. This does mean that if I had to on the the fly i would probably say a lot of improper things when translating: like please pass the refrigerator. I can only read kana and some simple kanji from memory.

That being said the study of Japanese history, language, and mythology have been quite a hobby of mine since I was 19. I am 33 years old now. My first major in college was computer science & my second was Anthropology with an emphasis in Linguistics. I dropped out of college about 5 years ago because I got kidney disease. I am currently on disability, on dialysis, and am working on this game.

I can BARELY read some hiragana, almost no katakana, and maybe 10-15 kanji.  But my wife is more fluent than I at both writing, reading and speaking & listening.  So I pick stuff up... especially since we play Final Fantasy XI together; she in Japanese, me in English.

That's awesome Andy! Would you want to join my team. Lol not that you aren't already bogged down with work from Simutronics or anything. ;p

Seriously though, I am encouraging all people interested in making Ninja, Samurai, or even just martial arts based MMO games to apply.

Let's work together to make one amazing Martial Arts MMO instead of 100 ok Martial Arts MMOs.

I am all for this concept... as an mmorpg it is an underdeveloped field.  With exception to chinese made poorly translated and cloned games.  I wish you luck in your endeavor.

I can not join a team.  Sorry.  Too busy - wife & kid, and something dismally resembling a real life. :)

what is this real thing?  is it some kind of new game?  is it a delusion that there is something beyond the magic box that we call our world?

I am now attending Full-Sail University on-line to finish a BS in Game Design. This idea was actually given to me by one of the forum members here. Thank you!

I believe that I am an awesome person to create a Japanese Mythology based MMORPG because I have studied Japanese language and culture for over 10 years. All of the other martial arts games I have played are obviously poorly made in my opinion. They always mix cultures. * A Japanese pagoda next to a Chinese house in a place that looks like Thailand.

Rising Sun, AKA Feudal Japan, AKA Red Sun, AKA Shinobi to Meiyou, AKA Patience & Honor

will be strictly Japanese art, history, and mythology. (For those of you who want a real: Ninja, Samurai, or Kitsune experience.)

Anyone else attending Full-Sail or that is Full-Sail alumni; If you want to form a chat group or something that would be neat.
