MMORPG.COM's E3 2006 Awards

MMORPG.com has their E3 2006 Awards up. Fury got the award for “Most Surprising” game of the show.
This category wasn't even close. If any game came out of left field to grab us, it was Auran's Fury. They're off to a good start.
Fury also got honorable mention for “Best Graphics” though I can see why we didn't win if they are using that horrible screenshot. Our faces look much better than that now.

We also got honorable mention for “Best of Show” with this quote:
It just looks fun. There is no other way to describe it. Auran's entry at E3 2006 looks like a blast. It's visually appealing and further along then anyone expected. Auran may have a darkhorse hit on their hands here.
Not too bad for a last minute show version thrown together for a game that is still over a year out.

Over a year? What are you going to spend that time doing? Polishing? Fixing bugs? Don't you know us mindless consumers spend just as much money on the broken stuff?

hehe

Those arn't bugs! Those are FEATURES!!!

Seriously, we need a year for content. With this type of game you have to build all the actual gameplay first and then build the maps. For example if we were to change the jump height it could invalidate all the existing maps because you then could or couldn't jump to places you couldn't or could jump to before.
