- The Call
The Crawling Map
- After several days we finally managed to put together every single part of the game’s map
("Really??? so…there’s a map in this game?" if you are wondering this, just remember that we're talking about a MMORPG).
We took the separately-developed elements – as witches do in their labs when they prepare some potion of theirs - and we threw them in a big pot to get the game’s map: programming and database, graphics, background and user’s interface. A virtual mixing and…HAAAAGH!!!! That’s a horror!
Only the strongest ones among us, after having passed a sanity check (if you don't know what a sanity check is, my advice is to play "The Call of Chtulhu"'s Role Playing Game), managed to set their pc's screen free from the monster we created.
"Ok guys, we have to start again from the beginning…". The places' arrangement was too monotonous, the interface uncomfortable and the graphics not exciting at all. I believe it was impossible to make it worse.
Being aware that several, big failures lead - sometimes – to brilliant results, we rolled up our sleeves and started from the beginning with a renewed enthusiasm.
At the moment, the map's correction is almost over and the result, according to us, is satisfying. We are going to publish a map's preview very soon, and you will also be able to give us your feedbacks.
In the same days when this happend, the web site's home page was renewed.
The image's predominant colours have been changed; the title and the famous HPL's sentence have been inserted.
The background image has been extended until the text sides, as to include the ship that with its lonely pitching seems to witness the incautious crew's terrible end gets by mistake (or by choice?) near the Great Chtulhu’s dwelling (thanks to Loreb for the wonderful interpretation).
This should be the website’s final graphics and layout (the left menu’s links excluded). Feedbacks are welcome.
A final, special thank to those who offered us their help for this game’s realization, and to those who put in their websites a link to a www.cthulhugame.it .
See you soon!
