Lance Available for Order
4:10 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Earlier this month, we reported on a Mac-only MMORPG known as Lance that was looking for supporters. The developer was unable to work on the project full-time due to financial issues, and called on people to buy in a little early to get the game finished. Apparently enough people pledged to support the game, as they're now making the cash-call to everyone wanting in on the game. You can now order Lance for $30 (plus a $9 per month server fee) and get to play the beta software. Developer Ryan Joseph notes it will take 1-2 weeks between ordering and actually getting the client software, since he must still get the server up and running first. He promises early supporters will get a bonus when the game actually is finished.
The Lance site has been updated with details on the game and an order form. There is a small FAQ available to answer some of the questions you might have about Lance as well. The minimum system requirements for the game are relatively small; it only needs 18MB of RAM, a 160MHz processor and a 14.4k connection. Here are a few of features Lance will include:
Ambient Sounds (weather, background noise, rivers, etc...) For more information, or to sign up for the beta, head to the Lance site. Fanatasoft, makers of the famous Realmz, will eventually publish the game once it's complete.
