Hello everyone. This is Furkan Gözükara from Turkey. I am the only developer & owner of browser based mmorpg game Monster MMORPG.
I am a Master of Science (M.Sc.) Computer Engineer. Currently studying Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Cukurova University.

I am using ASP.net & C# to develop my game.
At this thread I will share information about my game and also continuously post the official updates.

Monster MMORPG was started as a browser based Pokémon MMORPG game. It was me and my 2 other friends graduation project from our Bachelor of Science. My other 2 friends gave up working on the game after we graduated in 2009.
PokemonCraft became quite popular. Alexa rank top 100k, about 20k visitors per day with more than 3 million page views per day.
In 2011 Nintendo lawyer send DMCA to shut down game. I still don't know why since there are like 30 other Pokémon MMORPG game.
Anyway i didn't let my game get wasted so decided to convert it into a full scale Monster MMORPG game similar to Pokémon games.

If you know how to play generation 3 Pokémon games, you will find this game very easy to play.

I am collecting monsters from DeviantArt artists. Asking their permission to use at my game. So i have very mixed style of monsters. I have private software to automatically compose features of new monsters, assign them on maps.
Each week i am able to re-assign all monsters, NPC trainers on maps and add countless new monsters. If you consider about composing a Pokémon move list, you can understand how hard task is this.

I will post screenshots at the bottom of this thread.

Currently (22.07.2013) we have 1,751 pets (Monster, Fake Pokémon, Fakemon) from 45 different artists. You can see all of them on our MonsterDex page.
MonsterDex : http://www.monstermmorpg.com/MonsterDex

Here several different style monsters from each class: Ancient, Legendary, Zenith, Emissary, Starter, Superior, Regular

11-Anglare.png 332-Dimagem.png 69-Blazedillo.png


We have 7 class of Monsters. Stats changes between 213-999.


Our monsters gets their moves by a special software that i designed from over 3,000 unique moves pool.

Currently our experienced players are working on a new assignment mechanic and processing each moves manually to reduce move number and improve assignment process.



Here our 1080p game-play tutorial video. It is totally in game footage. Only the entrance has special effects. You will not get bored while watching the tutorial video since I used pretty good musics.





We have 18 elemental types. You can see type chart here.

Game is composed by 19 different zones. Including every elemental type and 1 extra mixed type. Game zones can be seen here.
Each zone has a 1 monster arena and you can gain 1 badge from those arenas. Also in order to navigate between zones, you have to defeat zone guard.

Game has over 1,000 NPC trainers. You can battle only 1 time per day with these NPC trainers. NPC trainers gives items as reward and extra Gold and EXP.

Game has total 520 unique maps. All professionally designed. Game maps can be seen here.

Here several different elemental types of game maps.

Poison-Barb-Town.png Angler-Town.png Breeze-Hill.png

Since we are similar to Pokemon we have ability system. But in our system each captured pet can have 3 abilities from their ability pool.
These abilities are assigned each time when a monster captured and they are permanent.
At each monster details page you can see ability pools.

Also our ability list can be seen here. All fully working.

We also have natures like in Pokemon. But our natures affects all 6 stats and we have over 100 different natures.
Natures list can be seen here.

How to play tutorial with images and text can be seen here.

We also provide a fully working stat calculator tool. You can load your captured monsters and play around with the values.
As can be seen there we have UV and TP values. If we compare with Pokemon UV values are like IV values and TP values are like EV values.
But of course still different to not violate any copyrights.

Click here to play with stat calculator.

What makes our game pretty different than most of the other games, we keep individual data of each captured monster.
This provides us great features such as you can name your captured pet, your captured can have individual values, held item, and different characteristics.
Our Monster characteristics can be seen here. Each captured monster get 3 traits.

All of our monsters can be seen as 120 pixel thumbnails on this page. Page contains a lot of filtering features.

We have a fully working advanced market system. Our market supports buy, sell items both from NPC and other players.
Buy, sell monsters among players.
Trade monsters among players. Once again our market system has a lot of filtering features which makes it pretty useful for players.

Also game has over 180 items and the move items. Move items are called as MTs like TMs in Pokemon. Items are AI Item, Battle Item, Health Item, Held Item, Main Item, Monster Box, MT Item, Transformation Item.
Itemdex is not available yet.

Game banners and logos can be seen here.

Game profile avatars can be seen at here.

Registration process is really easy to game. You need to provide a valid email address, select a starting monster, select your over-world sprite, type your password and username then you are ready to play after clicking activation link that is sent to your inbox (check spam-box if you don't receive email). You can also request multiple activation emails if it didn't arrive.

You can register the game here.

We also have a dedicated MYBB forum for the game.

I am also fan of a preventing cheating. I rather prevent it than banning cheaters. Banning cheaters only leads some cheaters to get away.
For this reason, we have special game mechanics that requires very advanced special software for cheating also in-game coded Captcha question that doesn't bother real player but kill cheating.

We also have a special coded chat screen integrated to the game. Chat screen has multiple language channels so you can chat in your own language.

Game also has a perfectly working live PvP battle system. You can battle with your friends only and live.

So what future plans do i have ?
* Complete redesign of the game that will run faster, smoother and look a lot better.
* Guild/Clan system: A pretty advanced one with lots of great futures
* Live PvP tournaments: Private player composed tournaments may also be possible with special conditions
* Live PvP maps
* PvP points and ranking system

Game is hosted on a special deal dedicated server. So we are the only one that uses this server.
Server features are as follows:

32 GB Ram memory
Intel Xeon E3-1270
2x sata 3 - 256 GB SSD as raid 1 - for security reasons
1x 500 gb sata 2 for storage

I have a special software that updates all users ranks and statistics everyday, also optimize database and takes full backup.

Game is listed, reviewed on the following authority game related sites. But most of them are outdated unfortunately.

Our biggest problem right now is the HTML structure of the website and the UI.
I started this project as a total rookie programmer and it grew and grew. So now i need a whole recode.
I am in a search of web designer to get him/her design site beautifully in Photoshop. So i can recode whole site.

I am always looking for volunteer artists, contributors. Our credits page has now 75 different contributors. Majority of them are volunteer Deviantart Monster, Fake Pokemon, Fakemon, pet artists.
Check our credits page here: http://www.monstermmorpg.com/Credits

And finally here the recent screenshots of the game.

Due to image limitation i had to remove so many images from the thread :(

It looks like you have a good sized game judging from the images, but as long as you keep stating how similar it is to pokemon you are going to have to watch out for more lawyers coming your way. I can see it is unique and original though and not copy and pasted.

No offense, but I doubt that they / he needs those warnings about copyright claims from an (I assume) legally unexperienced person. If they need a lawyer they will surely contact someone - if they haven't done that already.

 

I'm just saying this because on the old forums his thread was constantly berated with "uh copyright" posts and I don't think we need to have that on the new forums ;)

lol oh those damn copyright claims. At best since this game does not work on a pay to play basis or even ask for money through shops it could be defended as a fan mmorpg. So copyright would have a very difficult time trying to find ways to bring up a lawsuit.

Either way looks interesting, 1738 different monster. Definitely topped pokemon's monster count. Might give it a go.

 

Edit: I did notice however your using the Yin and Yang Symbol for dark, when truth is the Yin and Yang is the symbol for balance, cycles, changing, push and pull, back and forth, day and night and so on so forth. You may want to consider updating the symbol, just and fyi :P.

Update 2.2.3 On Monster MMORPG A Browser Based Indie Game With Pathfinding AI

*** This is one of the very important update recently happened

*** For the Sunday, 300% very special bonus event started. Both Gold and EXP

*** Battle animation can be turned off/on from control panel. Now it is remembered

*** Now you can click your username at right top to go your control panel

*** First few maps now have arrow images embedded to show exits and entrance to the monster center, shop or caves

*** Pathfinding feature implemented to the game

---- Pathfinding or pathing is the plotting, by a computer application, of the shortest route between two points. It is a more practical variant on solving mazes. This field of research is based heavily on Dijkstra's algorithm for finding the shortest path on a weighted graph.

---- In our game pathfinding works as to show you shortest path to the exits. In short a path to the route changing locations.

---- Pathfinding normally very hardware power consuming stuff but we are doing preprocessing to make it lightning fast.

---- Preprocessing still continues so pathfinding is supported to maps between 1-220. But in couple of days hopefully it will be supported at all of the maps.

---- Pathfinding can be turned off/on from control panel

---- Here pathfinding image

9rhp.png


*** Players starting positions to the game at the first map greatly randomized. So they won't compose a crowd at the front of monster center

*** Individual donation page added to the game. In order to view that page you need to login and have more than 5 monsters total

*** 7 Monster images completely revamped. Henrie is back ^^ (If you are still seeing old images please hit F5 or refresh the page)

*** All monsters on maps re-assigned

*** All NPCs and their monsters re-assigned
