Project Dogmat
« on: December 11, 2014, 08:55:09 PM »
I thought I'd start a topic about Project Dogmat here. It's a Russian team of developers making their own vampire themed MMO. Their site is primarily in Russian, but can be translated with Chrome browser. They mainly communicate through their blog posts, so we'll likely just post those here.

Here is the FAQ for their project:

Thoughts?

That's looking just as good as the WODMMO did. Here's hoping they don't have a weird take on the vampires themselves. 1800s fiction on Russian vampires was good, but I don't know what the modern interpretations are.
Remember: It's not the size of your fangs that matters; it's what you stick them in.

Well, there is some talk that they have access to the MMO alpha and icons show that they sometimes use exactly the same textures. Maybe they are building their game on the alpha itself? If that is the case, CCP might come down on them again...

We use their materials as an example. But all we do is only our development.

Also, you they could pretty much ignore a cease and desist letter if it's sent because you're making a game with an appearance of the MMO, because the WoD MMO was cancelled. Most C&D letters aren't ordered by courts, just threats of legal action. In most courts, CCP would have to prove damages and that would be a hard argument to make, considering Dogmat is supposedly similar to a game that doesn't even exist. If it were that easy, Dark wouldn't have been released. If they you a C&D letter based on appearances similar to WoD Online, I'd completely ignore it and continue, perhaps after a chuckle.

Great! But still I would use your own graphics as soon as possible because they have a lawyer that is shooting letters around a lot ;)!

As I said, everything we create we do by yourself. Some elements may be similar to that used CCP because we are based on what we've seen from them. But this is all created by us.

And by the way, CCP have used a lot of "third party" materials :)

You mean for the MMO alpha? Can you give us some examples?

Interesting.
Every material that was published on Project Dogmat page looks almost identical to materials from leaked Wod prototype.
Even concept arts are very similar to ones published by CPP (and I know that it's hard to imitate other artists individual style).

I like the video. It evokes memories of the one i have seen 3 years ago. Now I have two nice videos.

They seem like they're moving faster than CCP and Chris did.   :rofl:
