Dear Rulers of the Sea community member,
In 2019 you heard for the first time about Rulers of the Sea. And the reason that you are reading this must be because you loved the design!
You are very special to us because we share a dream. A dream of an MMORPG that doesn’t yet exist, a design where we can share our passion for history, culture, politics, arts, warfare, adventure, exploration, economy, ships and the sea, and much more. We share a passion in a desire to tell our own stories in a shared historical world. There is nothing more powerful and motivating than a shared dream.
2020 will be the year in which we will find out whether our shared dream will come to life. In the beginning of 2019 there was nothing but an idea, and now we have a team, a company, a website, a forum, social media channels, the beginning development of a game, a community, a campaign, and you. And we did all that with very little money and tons of passion.
In 2020 we need to prove that the community that wants to play Rulers of the Sea is large enough. If we can prove we have the community to make Rulers of the Sea profitable once it is built, we can find the investments to build it. We believe we can.
In 2020 we also hope that we can find a large amount of investors from within the community. This will make it much easier to find additional investments. Every cent that is invested by a fan goes a long way into ensuring the integrity of the Rulers of the Sea design. Any ‘more corporate’ investors will understand that if fans have invested it is paramount to deliver what you promised. The fans will own a part of the project. We believe in this.
In 2020 we also hope to create a vibrant community involvement that will help with the design. We need a lot of expertise on historical content. We can use a lot of help with historical game art. The more involvement of the community we can get, the richer, more realistic and accurate the content will become. We know our supporters want to be involved.
Our wish for 2020 is to have the privilege and honour of your continued support!
Our wish for 2020 is also that you are well. We wish you a very happy and prosperous new year!
The Deadeye Games Team
