Day of Dragons

Recommended Posts

Hello there! Close this if there's already a day of dragons thread...I searched and didn't see any. I wanna see if people are excited or know about this game's existence. 

I love dragons so this is like a dream come true for me, I always wanted a game like this since I was small. ❤️ 

It's a open world survival game (online or single) where you play as a DRAGON! You guys should check it out, the state of the game is very early alpha but it looks soooooo gooooooood.

 

Video games where you get to play as a dragon are so rare, so this seems awesome. I can't wait to play it and I'm excited to discuss it with other people!! :DD

I would really love to see an open world survival game where you're able to play as a dragon, and based on just how well the kickstarter for Day of Dragons did, a lot of people want a game like this, so I really hope it's happening. 

However, there are some major problems surrounding this game that make this kickstarter really look like a scam created by someone with no proof of game development or even programming experience. The game as it is now, the screenshots above and anything in the game you've seen youtubers or streamers show off, are all unreal engine marketplace assets. Nothing in the game is original except for the HUD and four lines of code. Anyone could put together the current game in a few days without doing any programming or modeling. 

Most of the concept art used in the kickstarter is stolen or not licensed to Day of Dragons. The developer has shown no proof that he actually can make a game, and after the success of the kickstarter has shown himself to be greedy, already planning merch and revealing that most dragons in the game will be $5-10 DLCs. (Which, if the game is happening, this makes it much less exciting.) 

The Day of Dragons discord has a zero tolerance policy for bringing up any of these concerns, and if you do you will be attacked by supporters, mods, and even the developer himself. You will be banned from the server. Your discord tag and other servers you are in could even be shared publicly, possibly to encourage supporters to attack you elsewhere. 

 

So yeah, as much as I think a survival game about dragons would be awesome, this just might not be the one. :(

I saw a video where another guy basically made the exact same game with the exact same assets from "scratch" in a few days! The environment and dragons where both store bought and Beawesome seemingly only made 4 lines of code on their own. The video also went into detail on the team's generally sketchy behavior.

Here he is if you wanna see for yourself.

I'm not condemning anyone because they might just be inexperienced but I certainly wouldn't recommend giving them your money until the issues are dealt with or addressed in a meaningful way.

 

It feels like a scam to me personally, it seemed sketchy from the moment I learned that msot dragons are behind a limited time paywall but this seals it for me. Which is a real shame because the interviews sounded like there was a lot on the way but with all the stuff discussed in the video I'm kinda doubting that anything will come of it.

 

Don't loose hope for the concept, there are other people out there who seem to be trying to do the same thing. The same guy who made the video recommended "Emberfall" as an alternative in their description, I types the name into YouTube and videos called "dragon game project" showed up on the first slot so I think it's what he's talking about. It's pretty bare bones and the graphics aren't HD like day of dragons so I wouldn't jump to conclusions yet but the dragon looks better in terms of design (NO hang butt wings!) and they actually seem to be making visible progress in their videos. Non-AAA graphics aren't flashy and can be constraining but i'd prefer a good game with sub-par graphics over a gorgeous nothing-game any day.

For some reason lizard men are also in the mix now but the dragon seems to be the main focus so the lizards are probably nothing to worry about.

It's really early in development from the looks of it but it might be worth keeping an eye on.
