    Dear Supporters,

    Community members, friends, investors, or players. Thank you. Old and new, we here at Awakened Studio have been working long into the night, and into early mornings to bring you all a video game that was at first inspired by an anime called Sword Art Online that has evolved into a full fledged MMORPG project. Just as seasons change, so did our staff as they came and went, so did our community members who came and left, one thing always stayed the same. The dedication and passion, the belief that what we had started was destined to be completed and in the hands of all of those who supported us. We here at Awakened Studio thank you for your countless days of support, and we hope you will continue supporting us as we reach new chapters as a community and as game developers. We hope you will continue to support Project Hiraeth.

    Sincere thanks, The Awakened Studio Developers

    We decided to recompile some of the most important questions about Project Hiraeth's development in a new FAQ oriented to just answering game related questions. Project Hiraeth is very young in its development, which means it's easily impacted by your feedback and just as easily changed! The following is what we expect right now of Project Hiraeth.


    Q: When will the game release!

    A: Not now! As of right now, the entire team is focused on creating a Combat Alpha testing phase that will be open to everyone. The Combat Alpha is at least 1 year away from release when this post was created. Please follow the Forums or Discord for announcements relating to releases.

    Q: Can I join the team?

    A: Yes you can. Some of our prior staff members have been as young as 12, and as old as 21. We accept any that has the talent, and the passion for developing video games. We are currently in desperate need of Programmers, Animators, 3D modelers, and Sound Engineers. If you want more information on applications and the process message @Reno

    Q: What kind of game will this be?

    A: Project Hiraeth will be an open world MMORPG taking place across multiple floors with very expansive maps relatable to titles like Skyrim or Witcher. We want to challenge players with an overwhelming amount of fine details that will keep this large game world populated with things to experience. The game is currently aimed at having an extensive PVE system and a fun PVP system.

    Q: Will this game be free, will I ever need to pay for something?

    A: Yes! The game and all future patches / releases will be free. We will have several types of opportunities for players to donate to the project in the form of Founder Packs or other similar virtual premium items that can be purchased.

    Q: Will the game be pay to win?

    A: No! None of the items players can purchase will have an impact on the gameplay that will give them an advantage over our regular players! All of the premium donation items will be cosmetic in nature, or social like pets, mounts or special emotes!

    Q: What will gameplay be like?

    A: Combat wise we are doing our best to have a responsive, skill based system with minimal assistance from the game itself. Accuracy and control will be the determining factor for most of your battles. The world will be wide and we will be doing our best to provide quality experiences, stories, and interactives throughout the world.

    Q: Is this a skill spam game / Click and forget?

    A: No! All of the combat you experience in the game will be dynamic, requiring players to duck, dodge and roll out of danger.. or into it! This MMORPG is NOT a click and forget game. It's a thinking game, we are doing our very best to ensure players are engaged from start to finish. Requiring tact, strategy and a quick reaction time!

    Q: Will there be skills or classes?

    A: There will not be a class system in the game. There will be skills, and players will be able to explore these skills freely. Swapping weapons or armor types, and growing their skills with their gear over time. Eventually, players will be able to invest points in the skills they choose to gain additional effects. We won't lock players into any type of caste, you can experience the game world how you feel like!

    Q: Will there be commerce/trading?

    A: As of right now, we plan on creating a system that will allow players to not just trade among themselves, but trade with a fluid living game world where players can provide local regions with the materials and consumables they need to thrive. Depending on the trade flow regions can grow or decay.

    Q: Can I own property or buy a home?

    A: We would like players to be able to buy physical property in the game world, with a fair amount of customization and benefits of owning a home. Homes will be divided into several designs each offering its own specialty ranging from reagent and consumable farming to increased commerce revenue, or unique crafting options. Players pay tax to maintain their property, failing to pay this tax and it opens up for sale to other players.

    Q: Can I start a guild?

    A: Yes you can, guilds will be an ever expanding experience for players. Allowing you to operate anything from a small band of robbers, to a living empire. Players will be able to combine multiple guilds to form factions and truly have an impact on the games commerce, travel, and safety. Will you bring turmoil to the world, or descend it into chaos?

    Q: Will there be magic?

    A: There will not be magic in the game world. The game will have numerous elements and fantasy interactions that will still breath life into the game world. You will come across fire breathing dragons, and poison spitting frogs. The game will not have any usable magic for players. Although there might be some unexplained mysteries in the game for you to solve.

    Thank you for reading our announcement for Project Hiraeth!

    Needless to say, I am unbelievably exciting for this next chapter of development and back aboard the hype train. This is definitely something that I personally needed to keep on keeping on in terms of following this project. Hopefully there will be a new influx of creative ideas and design perspectives from the community going forward.
