A plug-in based engine will allow the game to be expanded after release. Here is an excerpt from the press release:

Dragon Alpha will be released August 1, 2001 for 25$. It will require a
Power PC (preferably a G3 or newer), System 8.1 or newer, and 32 MB of RAM.
Dragon Alpha will also require that the computer running it can run at 800 x
600 with thousands of colors. On or before October 1, 2001 Dracosoft will
release a free update to Carbonize Dragon Alpha. Dragon Alpha is a
traditional RPG focuses primarily on game play. Dragon Alpha attempts to
remedy the problem with modern RPG’s being to easy. Dragon Alpha’s game
difficulty ranges from intermediate to very hard.

Story Introduction

1000 years ago a Great Elder Dragon came down from the heavens and
unleashed a wrath of wild dragons on the world. The Gods fearing the wrath
of such a powerful force would destroy them, they withdrew into hiding. Now
wild dragons rule the world and humans are no longer the dominant force of
the planet. People have accepted the fate given to them and attempt to live
in union with the dragons knowing that at anytime a dragon could wipe
through their homes killing all in their way. The game begins with your
character having had enough with the death caused by dragons and vows he
will rid the world of their evil tyranny. Most people find him foolish but
nonetheless he pushes on with his personal holy quest.

According to the PR Dracosoft also has several other titles in development, and they plan to develop for consoles as well in the future. Visit the web site for more information.
