RPG players, I have a question for you. I'm a hobbyist/indie game developer and I have a very old project on my mind. There has been some attempts to make it a reality, form a team, but nothing solid. Before I keep trying to develop it any further, I want your opinion.
The project is to make a a hybrid between a virtual tabletop and a modern video game. The player would experience the game just like he experiences a session of some elder scrolls game, but with a small handful of other players online as well. The big difference would be the game master, an invisible online player that has absolute control over the whole game world, from the world's geometry to the NPCs dialogues. This idea comes with a world of issues and problems to solve, but that's the idea.
Question: would you be interested in this? would you play it? I want to know if the audience for this game would be video gamers or tabletop RPG players. Right now, I'm not sure any of these two groups are interested.
