This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

New RPG Game being developed need your thoughts.

Like the term RPG, Open world and even sandbox have been appropriated for PC games and have taken on different meanings.

Open World tends to mean a game where you can roam wherever. There are no barriers really so if you go over there you might get your head handed to you, but over here its manageable. Id guess its use is closer to a wilderness or hex crawl campaign for tabletop.

Sandbox in PCs seems to still have no real definithion. One guy uses it for an open world game, another uses it for a fixed but destructable map, another uses it to describe any given builder game like Minecraft. And someone else uses it to describe some sort of rail shooter, but you can custom your gear. Oh and its an RPG too. No really! It is!

It does look like the OPs game is of the open world sort. Free roaming. That is the impression I got from the vid.

Looks like actually asking questions killed this thread, and possibly the OP.
You should go to GaryCon.  Period.

The rules can't cure stupid, and the rules can't cure asshole.

Hopefully to think on how to improve things and assess the feasibility factor.

Playtesting is where the real fun begins.
