Secret of the Solstice? Hi

Post by Zudose » August 13th, 2014, 1:26 am

Hi im Zudose, started playing mmos when i was 9, i started with secret of the solstice, R.I.P Veggz, R.I.P -JM-, R.I.P CrazyOldMan, all people i met in those days that were guildies of mine, since then ive branced out into almost every type of online game there is. I'm hoping this can fil the void of were solstice use to be. Any other soltice surviovrs out there let me know, oh btw im 17 and from new york.

Ah. I remember you! I remember -JM- and CrazyOldMan. I doubt you remember me, though. I was perpetually low level and in PvP 24/7 (Shadow Curse and Zevic). :wah: I didn't start actually aiming for high level characters until I transferred to Windslayer. My best friend in SoS was Saveline; you might remember him.

Hi there, Zudose! Welcome aboard!

Secret of the Solstice seems to be a fun game. Too bad, it has been shut down before I could try it. Wish I knew about it much sooner, oh well.

Never heard of it so I looked it up in the wikipedia. It is weird how it ended. I also looked for some screenshots and those textures look 1:1 like RO's imho. Maybe some kind of legal issues? :hmm:

The grass, the trees, the street, the laterns, the walls and so on. If there was no GUI and no chars I'd be 100% sure it was a screen from RO ^^

The game was around for a few years before it ended, and then they came out with "Solstice Reborn," which only lasted a little while. It didn't have anything to do with legal issues. The company that published it, Outspark, just wasn't good at marketing it and keeping the game up just became less and less financially rewarding. :sob:

Ok, I read the part about closing the first version without a warning and moving to a remake so I thought they might have been forced to develop a new game but failed with it or something like this. Unfortunately a good development team with a great game often has much less success than a bad dev team and a bad game but a good marketing team :bzz:

SoS wasn't bad, but it was no Ragnarok Online.

I was trying to figure out what sos was... now that I saw this, I can stop feeling like i'm lost and not in on a secret.. :P But I would have to agree, this looks so much like RO it's scary O_O

It was an RO clone. It wasn't half bad either. The full name is Secret of the Solstice it was published by Outspark and was closed a few years ago.

Wow, its been forever since I have seen people talk about SoS. Its a game that I fondly remember fromy childhood days. Lol, only reason I found this thread was due to me looking up SoS to reminisce with my bro about it. I'll see you guys in ToS.
