EverEmber Reborn is a free roam multiplayer online roleplaying adventure game in the world of Ember. The Game's Concept: To bring back the good feeling of MMORPG's of the late 90's through 2000's while keeping up to date in many systems with hardcore death and player interaction.
Development Update #5, Thieves' VillageTime for another update. Today, we're gonna touch up on a new area, one that did not excist in EverEmber Online, and one that is going to be very different from the one from the original. Firstly, lets talk about the new village, Thieves Village. The Thieves Village is a small town hidden away from the rest of the society in the world of EverEmber. The game will feature a criminal system similar to the old one, if a player kills another player aggressively (not out of self defense) they...
Development Update #4, Sky IslandWelcome to the 4th development update for EverEmber Reborn! This post will be short and sweet, filled with images and teasers for the game and how our development is going. You can witness some of the development on our developer's @Amitgp twitch channel https://www.twitch.tv/videos/150189348 and see how the world was formed for the screenshot attached to this post. We've been very actively mapping out areas such as Dragons Pasture, Finished Darom, Almost done...
Development Update #3, Dragons PastureTime for an update! We've been working hard to make sure we have content available for players once EverEmber is released, and we're bringing back Dragon's Pasture! We are hoping to have the map completed in one to two months time. The new Dragon's Pasture will be an actual volcano. Players will be able to explore it, and find hidden treasures throughout. Players will have to watch out for pvp and of course, Ember Dragons. Ember dragons cannot be fought unless the player has a potion that...

Development Update #1, RebirthHello! Its been a long time since anyone has posted any updates related to the project, now's time to begin. This will be the very first EverEmber Reborn development post! We'll try to give sneak peeks of the game, its content, its development and its current state. We plan on getting a pre-alpha demo done to show off some of our games ideas and mechanics around July in order to kickstart the project. Basic first look details: EverEmber Reborn is a spiritual successor to EverEmber Online....
Important informational post about the projects current stateHey! Its been ages since i've posted anything on the website, and I just want to sincerely apologize for my insanely long absence with a very minor warning. I will try to touch on everything I can in one post so I don't have to make a vlog post #1, 2, 3, etc... [LIST] My explanation for not posting or developing in such a long time comes down to a few things. I have been extremely busy with my university studies, exams, work, and friends. Its been a long and very different semester for...
I have a developer log that I meant to post a while back for you guys, but with all of our behind the scenes work going on, it got a little delayed.
These are updates that are in game currently, that will require no client side downloads/updates.
New Zones :
-Icedale Peak : A mysterious portal has opened up in Blizzard's Bluff and leads to a small ice village known as Icedale Peak. Here you will find several new enemies along with a few quests to play through, and not to mention the items!
-Frozen Cavern Depths : Cold, but not too cold to stop you from swinging your sword, or drawing your bow to slay a few monsters though, that is, if you can handle what lies within these depths. You may face a Yeti, ready to grind away your flesh and pick his teeth with your bones, or an Ice Knight, waiting to chill your bones as cold as his and crush you. Perhaps a frozen King, waiting for a worthy challenge. All I know is there are a few road blocks, maybe some villagers can give you some advice, or maybe a quest or two?
-Desert Caves Floor 2 : This area had been opened before but was shut down and remodeled. Explore deep into the desert caves outside of Rasheeb, you may find yourself trapped by Sandstorm Knights, and slithering Sand Venom's. Do not fret though, there is a new tool you can find here to help you on your way, along with some smashing weapons. ( See below for new tool info. )
-Desert Guardians Lair : If you have found yourself face to face with the multiple beasts that guard these chambers, then you may be tougher than you look. Do not get a big head though, as the monsters in here are not messing around. Can you restore peace to this once beautiful cave?
New Tool :
-Climbers Hook : This is the newest...
One is the "Momentum Attack System" which works for Melee and Ranged attacks, for melee attacks the more you attack the more momentum stacks you get (up to 5) (you have to keep them up by attacking otherwise they will dissappear upon a timeout [5 segs that are updated with each attack]) when you reach the 5 stacks you have a short amount of time to press Shift (Shift was choosen because it's the nearest to Ctrl, so people will easily associate it as the "Strong Attack Button", CTRL being the "Normal Attack" [kinda like Dinasty Warriors XD]), when you successfully perform a Momentum Attack you will inflict 1.1x the damage of the normal attack, for ranged attacks (bows) they get a momentum stack everytime they launch an arrow (since they will usually miss a lot of shots on moving targets) on every fifth arrow they can launch a Momentum Attack. For Melee and Ranged pressing Shift before the time is right will reset the momentum stacks (and not attack).
The other one is the "Concentrated (Spell-)Casting System" which starts when you press Shift while casting a spell (or when you cast a spell with Shift pressed to start immediatelly), this will start a QTE (<- it's a link) where you have to press a series of arrows in the correct order (max:4), failing one means it will perform a regular spell, if you get it right when you finish casting the spell it will do 1.1x the damage/heal/vital. (you can use both Arrow keys or the WASD)
Right: Concentrated Casting

- My explanation for not posting or developing in such a long time comes down to a few things. I have been extremely busy with my university studies, exams, work, and friends. Its been a long and very different semester for me. I've had very little time for myself this semester, i had a job, extremely challenging classes, living alone and doing everything alone (everyone who cooks, cleans, and maintains everything alone knows what its like). I've had endless days in university in which i wake up at 4am, finish assignments, and come home only at 8-9pm. At that point, I just don't have the energy for EverEmber, and would rather hang out with some friends, do csgo with a friend, or call up a grill. On top of all that, internship hunting, developing myself professionally, etc... On top of that, the collapse of the website a few months ago, loss of momentum and users we had really made me lose motivation.
- EverEmber has turned out to be an amazing project with an amazing team, but it wasn't what I had originally envisioned, but I still want to see it succeed! I will be returning and working on the game little at a time. I have a huge list of everything that needs to be done compiled.
- The website will be fixed-up very soon, i'll add more images to the scroll bar, and have updates posted shortly.
I want to once again thank EACH AND EVERY ONE OF OUR EVEREMBER TEAM MEMBERS! Thank you so much for staying with us, and working on the project, I can't express my gratitude enough (sorry slash, still can't pay you). I will be posting a few more announcements soon, we'll keep everyone up to date!
Shrunk the background image and moved it over for contrast and to speed up the site. This seems to have drastically cut down site load times...
