High fantasy MMORPG where the community (that is you) provides content and has a direct say over the development and state of the game.

We have decided to stop the Kickstarter as we have had a big response on more things we should add in and as we stated before we will be making the game even if the Kickstarter does not succeed. Everyone who backed here has been send an email with a Kickstarter code which they can use when they back us on our website and get the same rewards they would have gotten if the Kickstarter did reach its goal. We will continue to generate crowed funding on our website as it will help with the polishing of the game. Please support us there and thank you all for all your support.

If you want to support Neo's Land you can back on www.neosland.com. You'll receive the same rewards as Kickstarter backers, including Stretch Goals.

News Articles

Neo’s Land offers a High Fantasy MMORPG Open World (or Sandbox if you prefer). While there will be some lore and theme to Neo’s Land, the world is what the community wills it to be. There will be incentives to promote further world building, for example to build the first seaport. Yes… that means a Crafter’s Paradise in gamer’s tongue.

In Neo’s Land, the initial players will be the pioneers in a new and unknown world. Founding the first settlement and deciding on what to do from there, remain or decide to venture off elsewhere. This is not to say, the world is empty with the exception of players and animals. There are other races and realms out there, friendly, self-serving, militating, or just plain evil.

Time does march on, bringing with it new advances (assuming players are researching) of technology, magic, economics and politics. Advances are very likely to be slow. Traveling to far off lands may be needed to gain that bit of knowledge, and once obtained; it is up to the player to decide what to do with it. If you are looking for a game in which your actions have direct impact to the world, able to build a legacy for yourself though fame and fortune, and have a say in the matter, well then, this seems like a good obvious choice.

ENGAGING THE COMMUNITY There are currently live community round table sessions allowing for player discussions with the developers. These round table discussions are currently hosted by Marcus Eikenberry, better known as Markee Dragon, on Twitch and YouTube. Yes, they are happening now…..........links are provided below.

LAND OWNERSHIP   Players can purchase land tiles, which will be zoned for:

  • Housing (a residence to lounge, sleep… that is if there was sleeping in a game…well, ok… if players want a sleep function added in, so be it),
  • Industrial (keep in mind this is fantasy, so industrial is along the lines of blacksmithing and alchemy; sorry no clockworks or steampower… well for now, depends on the community of course)
  • Commercial (Merchant shops and eateries… Would people actually go window shopping if there was content with prices listed by windows?Not likely… only thieves would be interested in this concept.)


NON-INSTANCED BUILDINGS By the way, all buildings are non-instanced.That means no breaking of immersion, pausing play while loading, or wondering where all of the other players disappeared to. So you can rest assured that as you walk into a building, those who walked in before you did, will still be there. Buildings are constructed by players using sections (such as walls, floors, roofs, stairs, etc) made with skill, blue prints, resources and allowance of time.That is right, homes made of pieces; which means, customized homes. You can build any type of house, any shape or size. If you don't want to build your own house then just buy a per-build house Blueprint and get NPC to build it for you!

INSTANCED PLAYER OWNED DUNGEONS   Yes you heard right, you can own/build your own dungeon. Attract creatures to live there, open it up to other players and watch the carnies. You could even get some of their loot if they die!

PLAYER DRIVEN ECONOMY   The Economy is player driven with no auction houses. While the power of economics is determined by players, just as in old times, players will need to travel to the locations of shops to conduct trades. You will also need to move your items and resources to sell them in other markets by means of transport. If you are poor, a donkey will have to do or spend some money and get your stuff transported by the local player driven coach system. This is pre-wizardry Internet.

CLASSLESS SKILL SYSTEM AND NO LEVELS   Affinity Skill Based System, with no levels or classes. Decide on what you want to be and go from there. Never too late to learn something new. Log-off inside your library and let your avatar learn a book or two. When you log in again you will be able to use those skills, so make sure you get a bookshelf!

PLAYER COMBAT AND LOOTING Open world PvE (Player versus Environment) and PvP (Player versus Player) Combat. Currently we are looking at a open PvP and looting system. You can buy insurance for the items you don't want to loose. Certain areas will have guards posted and no PvP is allowed near a guard which allows some safe zones for players. This design is not finalized and still an open topic for the community. There is still time to participate in the round tables to make your thoughts known!

UNITY3D CLIENT AND ATAVISM SERVER   One huge open game world hosted in a cloud server. Using our own propriety MMORPG server, the Atavism Platform.

  • A full fledged engine and not a platform hosting multiplayer games wrapped in a MMO shell and lobby.
  • There is no starting map of the whole game world, just what people know in the immediate area and the vast frontier beyond. Is the world flat or round? Good question, sounds like a job for a group of adventurous travelers.
  • Terrain editing is also supported… along with mines, tunnels, dungeons…
  • There will be Instanced and Non-Instanced Dungeons.  While we did say there would be no Instanced Buildings, dungeons come in both flavors. Players can decide if they want their own dungeon open or private.
  • Integration with Unity3D game engine.
  • Cross-platform capabilities, with the initial release for PC, MAC, Linux  and Browsers.                                                                          
  • Integration of video capturing software which allows players to capture video right in the game without having any software for it and post it to Youtube or other social media.

We will be making the Atavism Engine available for Unity Developers to buy and use to build their own MMO games in the very near future along with most assets we develop for Neo's Land.

AND THE REST    And the rest of those nice little things to have:

  • NPC’s (Non-Player Characters), Pets (Faithful Companions), Mounts (If you go trekking into the badlands without a mount, you’re gonna have a bad time), Trading, Chat, Inventory, Mining, Farming (actually farming plants and ranching animals), etc.

Founded in 2007 NeoJac Entertainment was formed with the goal to create games for gamers by gamers. NeoJac has been in development for some time with the Atavism Platform as a full fledged MMORPG engine. In the last year, NeoJac began integration with the Unity3D Game Engine, which has drastically improved development. Features which appear simple or are in the background such as day/night, weather and change of seasons are not so simple to code actually; but with Unity3D, such features are already available and have proven easy to integrate with the server. What would take days to weeks to implement and test, now takes hours. With Unity 3D as a client the NeoJac team can also implement any system when it comes to game mechanics in record time.

When completed, the Atavism Platform will be available for fellow Indies at Unity3D. Follow our Unity Thread at: http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/179338-MMO-Construction-Kit

Neo’s Land is being developed differently from other MMORPG’s - there is direct community involvement not seen in the industry yet which we have called Crowd Game Designing. Where some companies say they will be engaging with the community or taking feedback as concepts are being developed, NeoJac has already taken a different route.  The community literally is designing the systems to be implemented in the game, even before the Kickstarter campaign. NeoJac has been in collaboration with Marcus Eikenberry (AKA Markee Dragon) with his hosting of, “Lets Build an MMO Roundtable” series on Twitch and YouTube. A proven example of this has been with the release of Modular Housing and of Mining for Resources, which can be compared here:

Round Table Discussion  Lets Build an MMO Roundtable #3 Building Custom Houses - Resources Management 

Implementation Video   Let's Build an MMO First Game Video Fan Designed Land Management and Building Houses

NeoJac will be providing the means for players to provide direct game content such as 3D models for use through collaboration with Unity 3D. Player content provided in this manner will be reviewed by the community (peer review) for acceptance. NeoJac will continue to provide assets for the game world as well.

There are a few reasons why we choose Kickstarter. Kickstarter provides a direct connection between developers and customers.Traditionally speaking, a game developer would have to negotiate with a game publisher in order to get the game to market. With the Internet, game developers can bypass game publishers and go directly to the customers.This can be considered a win-win: the developer receives the funding and the customers receive a product/service more suited to their desire.

The second answer is by using Kickstarter, we can speed up the release date to spring of next year as well as give us the support to polish the game even more. Even without funds from Kickstarter, we will still release Neo’s Land and Atavism Online; it will just will take us longer to do so.

Lastly, Kickstarter provides a very good indicator of the demand and also a means to those who want early access or a head start.Yes, this does provide Backers from Kickstarter an advantage over those who join in at a later time. Obviously since there is associated risk with backing this project, the rewards to those who had faith in us, should have some advantages.

 We also have  daily rewards tiers. each day we will be taking one of the rewards away so the sooner you back the more rewards you will get.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Any game project is inherently risky, even more so for MMO’s due to their complexity. Unfortunately unforeseen events or technological breakthroughs can occur which can cause difficulties and hardships in succeeding with finalizing the project. Fortunately we have been at work with this project for over five years and know of the true realities. We are a team of mature and professional technical minded geeks (hey, geeks are sheik today… but back years ago, oh man; never mention being a ‘coder’ on the first date) with over 40 years of combined experience in the computer field, ranging from game development, software engineering, business, marketing and security.

NeoJac has received seeding investment which has allowed the development for the Atavism Engine., of which expects to release the engine for the Unity3D community next year. NeoJac brings to the table, Neo’s Land and Atavism. This is not a MMO in concept with just artwork and videos of only models in a mock up environment of a game engine with no server back end. The videos show of an actual client-server system operating over the Internet.

With the risk involved, NeoJac will continue to strive on for completion of this project, with our dedication and passion
