What’s Coming!


fig 1.1

So Kyoubai has been quite the success! Since it launched just over two weeks ago, we’ve hosted over 40,000 auctions with 150,000 bids. At any given time, there seems to be over 1,000 auctions to peruse for stuff like rare .moar files.

Thanks to all our users who offered input and helped us tweak the system so that it’s easier to use and less prone to exploits.

Up Next: ItemBuildr

Last night during our weekly brainstorming meeting, we discussed our next project: ItemBuildr.

ItemBuildr is to items as ForumBuildr is to forums. Every week there will be a competition where items are created by our users for the community.

The beauty of ItemBuildr is that it will mean a steady trickle of new equipment, junk and collectible items into the game economy. And unlike other popular MMOs, each item in our game will have a hilarious blurb of text inside it.

ItemBuildr is kind of the yang to Kyoubai’s ying, in that it guarantees that there’s always fresh new items to be traded back and forth.

  2. I disagree with zutara, I mean, you _just_ launched some paid content with Episode 2…

    By the way, I think you mean ‘yin’. ;)

    Oh, and ItemBuildr sounds fun. (thumbs up)

  4. Hey, when will there be e-peens for the auction house leaderboards? I’m kinda tired of buying and selling crappy moar files and best auctioneer will already be hard to top.
    Looking forward to the ItemBuildr, keep up the great work and don’t mind our constant bitching.

  5. This sounds good! I assume that it will give out chocolate scoops in the same fashion as Forumbuildr. Will this be the case?

  6. not to be obnoxious or anything (i know this stuff takes time), but can we have any sort of timeframe on itembuildr?

    Also, can you say if it will include items more powerful than those currently available?

  7. Im am also tired of Amasius’ items on every single page, no matter when I look at Kyoubai!…

    So for itembuildr, we’ll need to provide public domain pics and links to them, right?

  8. Aldo: Yes, it will require public domain pics and sauce.

    Neona: Hard to say how long it’ll take, but it’s the second-highest priority right now. There will be some very powerful and rare items, but they’ll run the whole gamut.

    zutara: Episode 3 is perpetually being worked on. That’s more of a content issue, anyway. We consider ItemBuildr to be an important component in keeping Ep 3 interesting.

  9. Agreed with Amasius. Peens first please – us two are almost out of flezz so far :)

  10. No, no fucking peens for the kyoubai leaderboards. Leaderboards are fucking uselss and don’t need a peen for every single thing that is multiplayer. RETIRE THEM ALL.

    P.S. MCB is a fag.

  13. Will ItemBuildr give the same Buildr Points as ForumBuildr? (It seems implied that they contain the same suffix) I honestly dont care either way, Im looking forward to this one. :)
