Previous Work by Team:
- Previous titles from members include (Force unleashed 2 / Epic Mickey / Etc) - Burning Dog has develop some older 2d scrollers back in the day that were release indie but took a break to develop enterprise software for the blood and plasma industry.

Additional Info:
With our project we are taking this very seriously, we are looking for pro talent or semi-pro, we can appericate that many different people are at different points of their careers but we are trying and going to develop something great here so this is not a hobby project, we respect that this is a revenue sharing venture and you have a real life and real job (most of us do) so we will work with you if something comes up. We generally are looking for a min of 20 hours per 7 day week a lot of our folks are working 8+ hours a day and still working a full time job while don't recommend this type of schedule for the average person we are looking for that type of commitment.

Feedback: ANY

When people hear MMO and "Origins" together they think of Ultima Online, developed by Origin Systems.

Is this an intentional allusion?

Can't say that's the case with me. Played UO for several years and didn't for one moment think of this allusion you speak of. o.0


People see connections where they want to. Just don't speak so broadly and generalize everyone (“when people” ) when it's not the case.

Hi there,

It looks like an awesome project - you guys really have something amazing going on here. Nice work.

I'm a programmer (C++ / .NET) and wuod like to here more about the " Programmers / Mobile Developers (IOS / Andriod / Windows 7 Mobile)" part.


What technologies are you using here? What are the planse for the mobile versions?
I might be interested in the programming and/or WP7 programming.

Thanks,

Jacob

I don't recall saying everyone makes that connection. You assume that only I do, since you don't happen to have made that connection? Any person even remotely aware of the history of MMOs could tell you the connection between the word "origin" and MMOs.

Please cut the off-topic chit-chat guys -- some people may associate the term "origin[s]" with Ultima Online, others will not -- we do not need a continued discussion of this bumping the topic constantly. In that spirit, please also refrain from responding to this post.
