Hey folks. Welcome to the pre-order store for the Saga of Lucimia. Before you go any further, you should know a few things, especially if you landed here by accident or someone told you to come check out our game (in which case here’s a link to the FAQ page; make sure you have a cup of coffee at the ready before you dive in!).
First and foremost, we’re not your typical “early access” program. Since we started this project in early 2014, we’ve been a self-funded team, working on this project in our spare time, outside of our day jobs. There’s 12 of us. Our pre-order store and early access has never been about marketing or making money; it’s about pre-screening the people who come in to our alpha and beta to ensure that they are people who want to be here to help us test and build a better game, not just get a free pass and content preview so they can get a “headstart” on everyone at launch.
Secondly, our early access schedule is currently in its pre-alpha stage, with builds available on an as-we-need-testing basis. That means the servers aren’t up 100% of the time. We bring them up when we need to test mechanics and features. The next testing session is tentatively scheduled for February of 2018, and we plan on moving to a monthly testing schedule in Q1 of 2018.
Watch the videos below for a rough layout of our 2018 plans, and a glimpse of the most recent build (Early Access #9) that took place December 22nd, 2017 – January 5th, 2018
Thirdly, is that we document our progress, ugly warts and all. We’re not AAA studio who only shows you the polished content; we’re an independent development team who are gamers first and foremost, and we are proud to show your every little step along our journey, form conception to publication. We’ve got nearly four years of videos up on YouTube, all the way back to very first login, back when we had rubberbanding, horrible graphical lag, and a terrifying UI.
Fourthly, is that you definetely shouldn’t pre-order if you are only interested in previewing our MMORPG. In fact, here’s 5 reasons NOT to pre-order Saga of Lucimia.
Seriously. Don’t give us any money unless you are 100% sure you want to join us in the boring side of game dev: testing bugs and features and mechanics. While we’re always happy for monetary support from our community, you would be disappointed by logging into an unpolished, unoptimized game that is currently still in development, which leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth regarding our project, and us feeling bad because you gave us money for the wrong reasons. You should stop right here, and head on over to our FAQ page for more info before you make a final decision.
You’re still here? Well-played, sir or madam…well-played. Well, if you are sure you want to join the SoL community as we build this beast into existence, and you truly want to dive in with the rest of us and get your hands dirty with alpha and beta testing and all the ugly, boring things we have to do before we get to a finished, polished product, we’ve got a variety of pre-order tiers available below. We also invite you to help guide the future of the game by joining our forums, signing up to the newsletter, and joining in over at our Discord channel.
P.S. You can work your way up through the pre-order ranks in a variety of ways. You can choose from several monthly subscription options over at your Account Page, you can make single installments if that works better for you, and you can go directly to a tier below and upgrade from there directly. You also earn a 25% referral bonus applied directly to your rank for every pre-order you refer. Check for the link at the bottom of your account page.
