Features and game play
21:36:35 Jul 12th 09 - VU Admin:

I need help describing the game features and game play...

A bonus turn will be given for each serious entry!


21:40:02 Jul 12th 09 - Mr. Brannigans Law:

21:47:33 Jul 12th 09 - Sir Belmont The Avenger:

21:52:40 Jul 12th 09 - Sir Onslaught:

A medieval fantasy strategy rpg. You build cities, accumulate resources to expand your empire, research sciences to better your peoples lives, and train glorious armies to attack your enemies to further expand and glorify your empire. Train mages to cast a wide array of spells to hinder your enemies and to assist your allies. Join forces with others to conquer and control entire realms.


21:54:19 Jul 12th 09 - Mr. Brainiac:

VU has a great variety of gameplay options.

Choose from one of six races every era

  • Elves who are known for their great magic
  • Halflings known for their income, and food production
  • Humans the neutral of the races who excel at nothing, but great at everything
  • Orc known for their brute force and strong armies
  • Trolls also known for their strong armies, but with a bit more economy than orcs
  • Dwarves known for their greedy-ness and vast richness

Use many of the cool interactive map features, and many of the other game features.

  • Build a colony, build near a certain resource and get a nice bonus
  • Cast magic from anywhere as long as you have the magic power
  • Create your own kingdom with a friend
  • Send messages to other rulers and come to an agreement of war or peace
  • Create vast armies to destroy and take out your enemies
  • Travel to different worlds and find new enemies to fight
  • Control the market and make millions
  • Train units anywhere there is peasants
  • Look at your production and see where your defence is overall, and find out what is limiting your empire from expanding
  • Research, or find sciences to further increase your military prowess or economical power

 

Thats all i got so far...(is it good enough?)


21:58:26 Jul 12th 09 - Sir Belmont The Avenger:

yeah its cool but looks a little bit boring it need more images and less bored words what about

in VU we got 6 races go control every era and elf or a sadist orc who kill their friends in exchange of force halfings weak but great income

bout that?


22:02:39 Jul 12th 09 - Lord Stewie Griffin:

"in VU we got 6 races go control every era and elf or a sadist orc who kill their friends in exchange of force halfings weak but great income"

I think we want to attract people to join VU not scare them away

VU also has a ranking system which is updated everytime you log in

  • Find out who is strongest in your realm
  • Figure out which cities to look out for
  • Know who has the strongest army in the world
  • See how many soldiers you've killed, and how many cities you have taken over
  • Compare your kingdom to other kingdoms and see who is truely more powerful

 

Little bit more?

 


22:09:09 Jul 12th 09 - Sir Belmont The Avenger:

as i said its cool but bit boring


22:12:12 Jul 12th 09 - Duke Pikachu:

I think we want something that points out the good features.. not just lists them.. where are the RP'ers!

they can make the goods come to life xD!


23:25:01 Jul 12th 09 - Mr. Overcome:

didnt have time to read the suggestions, but i think it should say that VU is played by all ages, but a recomandation of 14-15+

cause it gets kinda complicated for the younger. and it might attract more older players that are looking for a good game.


08:10:10 Jul 13th 09 - Mr. Penor The Impressive:

I started playing when I was 13... And yes it was a bit much there.

I would describe VU as a strategy more than an RPG... Just cause I have tried several RPGs and they suck but I like all the strategy games I play. And you dont have to get involved in roleplaying.

Also, I would point out the diversity that VU has. Look at how many different countries are represented in the "where are you from" thread. Its a mixing pot and a multicultural community.


08:17:55 Jul 13th 09 - Sir Belmont The Avenger:

''I started playing when I was 13... And yes it was a bit much there.''

i started younger than you! >:O


08:37:33 Jul 13th 09 - Lord Bishop:

VU is a MMORPG were you are able to take control of one of six race's, you can build cities, train vast army's, join a kingdom or make on your self and forge your name in the history book's and get an era named after yourself.


08:43:44 Jul 13th 09 - Sir Belmont The Avenger:

now thats what i am talking about!


09:26:40 Jul 13th 09 - Archangel Argyle:

In visual-utopia, you take the role of a ruler. Together with other rulers you can play for a kingdom, protect lands, attack the enemy, work as a team to achieve victory. Each game runs for about 2 months at the time, and the goal is to become the best player and kingdom.

Some strategic features is the market, where you can sell and buy resources with other players. And then we have the worlds, each world is a map with mountains, lakes and forests, and all maps are linked together, making it possible to challange the top kingdoms that might be located in another world.

Six awesome races in a medieval war game, hundreds of players in a wonderfull community.

Start playing today!


10:15:30 Jul 13th 09 - Mr. Megas Nikos:

The greatest general of the last era killed 4 millions troops, won 537 battles and captured 379 cities. Can you beat him the new era in the only real web based strategy game?

Something like that, I don't know so good english to write something better... :)


18:25:02 Jul 13th 09 - Mr. Gawaine:

Dwarves known for their greedy-ness and vast richness

correction- greediness

Another thing if you want VU to look fun, is to get spelling right, so make sure you get it right because there are errors in the game that are simple fixes that make the game look poorly put together. not jumping YOU Brainiac, just saying that if admin implements any new descriptions, make them grammatically correct and punctuated in the correct form. ;)


18:40:50 Jul 13th 09 - Mr. Skinny Vinny II:

I like argyles.





19:18:13 Jul 13th 09 - Mr. Brainiac:

CORRECTION: ITS GREEDY-NESS


20:26:46 Jul 13th 09 - Mr. Tavernwise:

Correction: It's

Correction: Greediness


22:13:03 Jul 13th 09 - Mr. Gawaine:

LOL tavern <3


22:23:09 Jul 13th 09 - Mr. Penor The Impressive:

Megas' is actually a good advertising hook i think.


22:50:20 Jul 13th 09 - VU Admin:

The welcome page has been updated. Braniac and Argyl have recived a bonus turn for their entry.


22:50:44 Jul 13th 09 - Mr. Brainiac:

No its its lol


22:54:41 Jul 13th 09 - Sir Water:

why you put in picture of walls while they arent in game, just cut the pic and leave the arzun/drenth msg


23:04:18 Jul 13th 09 - Mr. Overcome:

the welcome page looks good, but i still would have put in a recomandation of age to attract people over 15.
i think it would be positive for two reasons: people under 15 would see it as a challange to join a game where its recomanded to be atleast 15.
also i think the older people will get a good impression and think its not a lame game for 12 year olds:P (put on the edge)


23:37:00 Jul 13th 09 - Mr. Alfred Nobel:

Visual Utopia is a browser based fantasy strategy game. It runs in real time wich means that even if you are sleeping your peasants will be working, commisioned buildings will be completet and your armies will be moving. Of course, your enemies armies will be moving too...

The setting for this truly epic war game is a fantasy world with six very different races and a multitude of different strategies at your disposal. Its important to note that the "world" is infact several connected 2D maps with no limitations apart from terrain to where you can move your armies or build your cities.
Of course, due to the fact that the game never "sleeps" the world of Visual Utopia is a very dangerous place. It can be a good idea to join a kingdom so you can cover eachother, or get some friends to start playing and create a kingdom with them.

Since everything in Visual Utopia is player-run the social aspect of the game is extremely important and eventhough the game has a fairly simple base it can get very very complicated. How you play is of course up to you, unite your part of the map against a common threat or try to make profit by stabbing them in the back. All goes in love and VU.

Oh, and a last note. Even if you think you are getting a hang of this game you will be surprised. This is probably the most chaotic, destructive and challenging game you will ever have played. If you survive your first era you're either a genious or very lucky.
So what are you waiting for? Give it a try. Or two.


00:51:31 Jul 14th 09 - Mr. Billyb:

Build Elven sorcerer cities with gleaming spires, Dwarven grottoes glistening with gold, Orc strongholds bristling with defences, Knightly castles with hearty taverns, Halfling Shires of Summer green and Troll halls resounding with the sound of beating drums.

Then conquer them all with huge armies of fearsome troops and powerful spells in a furious and violent struggle for domination.

Are you ready to make history?


02:10:53 Jul 14th 09 - Demonslayer The Confused Demon Farmer:

The taverns are useless though :o  I wouldn't want a knightly castle then o.o


14:32:18 Jul 14th 09 - Duke Pikachu:

mah knights are pwetty. their salaries are too high though...


13:08:42 Jul 15th 09 - Mr. Peacemakerofdoomme:

da screenies hav walls, but now we hav no walls :(


13:10:35 Jul 15th 09 - Mr. Sandoran:

make other screens, or give us walls? i'd say the walls look cool on screens, so give us walls?


13:50:58 Jul 15th 09 - Lord Silvanus:

Yes get some new map screen shots would be the first thing i would change

 


20:07:50 Jul 16th 09 - Mr. Gawaine:

da screenies hav walls, but now we hav no walls :(

Maybe it's a sneak peek into next era... Something he's not going to TELL us he's going to do. =D


01:08:59 Jul 17th 09 - Sir Arlidorius The Tafflinicronian:

90% of people drank alcohol in europe in the middle ages, Alcohol was about 70% stronger back then than today.


09:02:53 Jul 17th 09 - Prince Pelagius Septim VIII:

Get virtually hammered in a magical tavern full of strange people and weird drinks that can somehow kill you in one shot!

=D
