This post is aimed at all the regulars on this forum, especially Braindead.

I work in software development and would like to revive this project, if it has truly, as the lack of activity suggests, been abandoned. Keep in mind, that this is not an attempt at coup d'etat, but rather a wish from a fan to see the project realized.

For this I would need the following:
  • The blessing of Braindead and the development team
  • Access to assets from the former project
  • The work and dedication of a handful of Mordor veterans who know the mechanics of David Allen's original Mordor intimately

I intend to build the game from scratch around the following principles:
  • The game will be written in C#. The client might be done in Unity, while a server application will be written as a windows service.
  • I will design an XSD-based data model which allows for easy data entry from the community in plain XML. A designated community member will be responsible for maintaining and extending the model as the need arises. I will update my model classes automatically by means of XSD.EXE as the data model grows.
  • Business logic pertaining to all game related flow, like combat, will be designed by the community. A designated panel of community members will collect and consolidate inputs and formalize documentation hereof for me to implement.
  • Development will be Scrum based, featuring small, self-contained, playable increments. I will design and maintain a roadmap with clear milestones. It will have a time schedule for the laugh.gifs.

Let me know what you think.

I appreciate this topic is over a year old now and for all intents and purposes likely forgotten or abandoned by the OP, but...

As a former member of the Mordor XP development team who's recently returned to activity on this forum, for what it's worth, such a concept has my blessing smile.gif

EDIT: To clarify, technically I'm still a member of the development team but as rightly pointed out by Danjen, there hasn't been any activity in the dev forums since 2016 unfortunately. Still, if any other members of the team ever stumble upon this, perhaps there could one day be a revival? You never know smile.gif

In 2039 people might actually get a leaked unfinished beta of mordor xp . I knew since back in the day this thing would never come all delays empty promises and the devs acting as we have 1000 years ahead of us to live and play games.... Sad...
