I remember playing this game in open alpha, and was just recently thinking about this game. I had high hopes for it, like many of you. Shame it didn't make it, all we can hope for is it's revival at some point.

guess this game is no more... sooooo many of these games that weve voted for will never see the light of day....

Lord Insanity Sep 28, 2014 @ 9:13am 
there hasnt been an update for an eternity
Mr. Baby Sep 7, 2014 @ 9:39am 
For anyone waiting on the release of this, know that in their bread winning game it took them well over 5+ years to add promised content, with more still waiting. By the way, that game is TEXT BASED.

I think development of this game is stagnating.
Skyfish Aug 11, 2014 @ 11:35am 
When searchign for "flight" on steam green light, this does not show up. A shame, since it has good flying mechanics.

I'll be severely dissapointed in you guys if you discontinue this, you put a lot of effort into it! Keep going strong!
Asuro Jun 16, 2014 @ 12:52pm 
Is there still anyone who is developing this? If not, can we at least have an answer? I liked the concept and gameplay, and would really like to know if there still is some hope that this game will be finished.

Despite the predominantly negative swathe of reviews I have to say I really liked this for the time I played; and this is coming from a person that would prefer playing as dragons, that's probably a more diehard emotion than most bandwaggoners that merely think they look cool. What is a pity is that it's pretty much dead now... I'm no wiz at flight sim or dogfighter games and came in just for the dragons but I had the controls down within a week and outplaying a fair number of longer standing players (testers rather). It was a blast when the devs stepped in and we had some decent 15 man or so skirmishes! I wouldn't want this game to be condemned to the gutter.

Devs where art thou? Don't let these people get to you; some of the concepts you had in store and described seemed pretty snazzy. I'm not aware of their past history but I didn't have problems when I had them alone to myself to grill.

PLEASE. Do continue. Don't let this fade away.

Been looking for a game that is centered around dragon riding for awhile. I'm pretty excited for this release!
pandamonium Mar 30, 2014 @ 12:39pm 
Cool idea but the gameplay seems shallow. Dragon The Game might be a more authentic dragon experience.
Mr. Baby Mar 27, 2014 @ 1:38am 
So disappointed to see this get the greenlight. Simutronics continues to trample on it's customers charging the same if not more for their MUD games like Gemstone IV. They barely delivered their promises for that game, which was their bread and butter for over a decade. I'm just glad the kickstarter didn't achieve it's goal. This company does NOT need your money.

(Continued from below.)

"Hey look, guys, dragons!!!" -- This isn't enough to sell your game on, especially when the dragons aren't dragons at all, just witless flying beasts controlled by riders. You'd get way more mileage out of a game like this by letting the player be the aforementioned ancient beast of power. No one ever really wants to play the dragonrider, that's why dragonrider games aren't that popular (see: Lair), and they only ever succeed if they're amazingly good and flawlessly executed.

If you don't go back to the drawing board, this is going to be flop.

If you really want to do something interesting?

* Drop the stagnant fantasy visuals. Be more fantastic. Use your imaginations.

* Drop the riders, they're just a boring hood ornament and a distraction from the main event. Intelligent dragons are much more interesting than mindless ones, anyway.

* Look at how the original Drakkhen (the original PC game) handled a truly free range of movement. They mixed flight simulator and arcade controls to give something that feels like a dragon, and it hasn't been bettered since.

(Continued above.)
AuldWolf Mar 23, 2014 @ 9:12pm 
This is basically Dragonriders of Elanthia. It looks like a really uninspired version of Panzer Dragoon, as others have mentioned. Aesthetically and visually it's boring, and it's not even on par with the now rather ancient Lair. SOE also tried to do this as an MMO, it wasn't very good.

The only thing recently that's even bordered on promising was Dragon Commander, but that game was butchered by focusing too heavily on an incredibly sub par RTS experience, almost leaving the dragon itself to be an afterthought.

Congrats on getting greenlit, looks interesting.

Now when I seen this i thought, AT LAST A GAME WHERE YOU GET TO PLAY A DRAGON!
But then I played it and was disapointed. The things i dident like were firstly the controles, they are horeble! Have you tryed playing Naturul Selection 2 well if the controles were like the Lurk from Natural Selection 2 and there were more people playing i would pay a decent amount of money for this.
Here is how I would like the controles
1 combine the camera look direction and dragon move direction and controle that with mouse movement, having them separat is pianful to play.

2 Then make it so you fall space to flap hold space to glide and if you are dont have enough speed when gliding or you start to fall.

3 make the cross heir and the other ui look nicer and more mystical because at the moment it very ugly.

but dont get me wrong i like it apart from that its just that the controls make it imposible to play.
Jimbos Mar 7, 2014 @ 12:41am 
@demigourd Exactly.

From what I've seen you basically made a watered down Lair/Panzer Dragoon. You could do so much more with just what you have then a crummy dragon flight battle sim thing.

Awesome concept, just horrible execution. Hell even if you maybe made it a little bit closer to Lair in terms of what that game was trying to accomplish, you'd get alot more people looking at this.
Dupirmarch Mar 5, 2014 @ 10:31pm 
please make a game using this art that isnt just flight battle sim
there's so much more you could do with this
piratedcopy Feb 22, 2014 @ 10:51pm

is it just me or did the dragon sound like a lion when it roard
David Knight Feb 20, 2014 @ 7:14am 
Make sure you include an inverted mouse toggle, some people LOVE inverted mouse some HATE it. If you give it a toggle, you'll make both sides happy.
不枉此生 Feb 18, 2014 @ 5:53pm 
look like not bad ^^
Szkodnix Feb 18, 2014 @ 1:42am 
Yeah, I like that ;)
+1 from me.
Zarniwoop Feb 13, 2014 @ 8:55pm 
Also, is there any point to the game besides battle arena? Single player campaign?
Zarniwoop Feb 13, 2014 @ 8:54pm 
First person perspective as an option please.
