I’m Michael Ferrier, indie game developer and creator of the early strategy MMO “War of Conquest” that will soon be relaunched, AMA!
Hello Reddit! I’m Michael Ferrier, indie game developer behind 2002’s “War of Conquest”, an early real-time strategy MMO, where thousands of nations battled for supremacy on a single huge map. In the late 90s I worked on one of the first MMORPGs, “Asheron’s Call” at Turbine Games. I then teamed up with another ex-Turbinite and created the original “War of Conquest”, which was online until 2011. Now I’m running a Kickstarter to launch a new, much improved “War of Conquest”. I’ve been making games for 25 years; along the way I’ve illustrated comic books, studied cognitive neuroscience and raised a flock of chickens.
