Ooohhh, I see.
If I was in a position to, I’d definitely donate to it.
I may be at some point soon though, so I’m hoping I can :P

If you’re looking for beta testers…hint hint.

looks awesome but im concerned about “with the social aspects and depth of an MMORPG” what does this mean? energy and pay2win?

Excellent questions.

First, the “social aspects” refer to the multitude of multi-player content (3man dungeons, guilds, team pvp). “Depth” refers to the idea that instead of simply grinding out the same content with new skins and bigger numbers, each quest and boss fight will present a unique gimmick that the player will have to counter act. This means that instead of each new stage just being more grind, you will actually have to think and be strategic in order to move forward in the game.

Second, the goal of SideQuest is to keep the game as friendly to non-paying users as possible. The best gear will always be found in the dungeons or as pvp rewards, there is no energy system (though, arenas, daily quests and dungeons are limited per day). Any item purchasable from the shop (other than vanity items) will be tradable, meaning that you can buy any given item mall item using gold.

We are committed to providing an enjoyable experience for ALL our users.. not just the ones with deep pockets.

It’s an attitude like that that’ll get you a lot of support too, which I’m glad to see.
Will this game end up being on Kongregate at all?

Does this game need a plug-in or download, or is it a browser game?

The game is built using Unity, so it runs in the Unity Webplayer.

Bumping for more attention.
I’d love to see this game get more support.

…which means it is not quite as acessible as flash. People are installing unity players, but rather slowly, and unless I’m quite mistaken, not many new computers come with a unity player.
that is to say, I don’t have unity. :P
oh, and I have no affiliation with your group.

I am very excited to try this game. I got the name “Wizard” as my username.

EDIT: I have played a bit of the game and I was wondering how to move your character? Lol.
