Some additional history stuff taken from H&H forum.

[by loftar » Sun Oct 27, 2013]: For anyone who's interested, some early milestones include the following (taken approximately from memory):
  • Sometime in like 2005: Jorb starts presenting the idea to me.
  • September 2007: Under the guise of "teaching him how to do it", Jorb tricks me into actually starting developing a simple single-player version. (Jorb has some truly stone-age mockup of Haven still lying around that he may feel free to post if he wants to.)
  • Some month or so later: We switch to a client/server model.
  • December 8th 2007: The characters Jorb and Loftar are born. A few weeks later they can walk around, chop down trees, and pick up the whole logs into their inventories. (As a piece of trivia, I and Jorb still have the entry left for the initial inventory format, both full of logs.)
  • Spring 2008: Major rework of resource handling and switch to OpenGL.
  • I think somewhere between here, cows are implemented, and their hides are made dryable and tannable.
  • August 2008: The homepage is first made, with open registrations. Though noone registers. QQ
  • October 2008: The combat system and accompanying death are implemented and by the hand of Jorb, the hearthlands are soon robbed of their innocence.
  • More mechanics are added.
  • Late May/June 2009: People actually start registering, arriving via [SGA], wherein we participated.
