Title: Vision

You clearly have an overarching vision for this game. Where do you see it in 5 years? in 10? in 20? Will the game ever be "complete"? Will you ever stop working on it (permanently)? Do you like apple pie or lemon morang better?

When I first started, I wasn't sure.  It was just a project.  Now, it's no longer just a project - it's an investment.

My five year goal is to have five thousand concurrent users on the game simultaneously.  I want to have to hire people to help me manage the game.  I also want the game to be able to pay my salary, but I don't want to compromise the game in doing so.  Pay-to-play sucks.

I'm taking a pretty big risk in doing this.  It's a really hard goal, with a lot of constraints.  Odds are good that I will fail, but not all is lost:  I know I need to be in business for myself instead of working for other people, and this is a good way to get started.  I've got a lot to learn.

I have no idea on ten or 20 year goals.  I'm pretty sure I'll keep the game around and active somewhere though.

Apple.
