We're making a 15-year anniversary video for Wurm and we need your help!

Recommended Posts

Hear ye, hear ye fellow Wurmians!

 

2021 marks the 15th year of Wurm Online! Fifteen years of our beloved Wurmians mining, digging, building, crafting and most importantly: culling the population of those nasty ol' trolls! To celebrate this amazing milestone, we will be creating a video that showcases Wurm's amazing journey over these past fifteen years. We've already got some historical material gathered, however what would really make this video special is for it to include stuff from YOU: the Wurm players! 

 

YOUR screenshots!
YOUR videos!
YOUR memories!
YOUR stories!

 

Visual material
If you have (or know of) any old screenshots and videos from Wurm's early years, (preferably pre-steam-release) please share! (the higher resolution the better!)


In the words of the players
Even if you don't have any visual material to share, you can still take part! We'd like to include some player comments in the video that would look something like this template:

 

sample.jpg

 

As you can see, the amount of text should be kept to a minimum to be able to fit! So keep it short! If you'd like to share your stories in further detail, describe those optionally in addition.

 

Tell us:

1. Your Wurm character's name: 
2. What year you started playing Wurm:
3. In one or two sentences - What Wurm means to you:
4. In one or two sentences - Your favorite Wurm memory: 
5. Please include a screenshot of your character's head:

 

For taking a screenshot of your character: 
1. Go into third person view (press minus/plus on your keyboard numpad or press V)
2. Zoom in as close as you can get to see your character’s face (pro tip: You can “move” the camera even closer if you stand next to a steep hill/mountain of some kind that forces the camera to get closer)
3. Turn off the UI: F10
4. Take a screenshot with Wurm’s in game keybind: F11
5. The location of your screenshot will be displayed in the Event window in yellow text
6. Do not worry about cropping it, simply upload it to Imgur or whatever other service you use and share the link here. Alternatively, you can send it to me directly by copy pasting the image into a private chat in Discord to KatsPurr#8213.

 

Optional: One or two sentences of your thoughts not enough? Feel free to share your memories and thoughts in greater detail here. We won't be able to include long paragraphs in the video, but I'm sure we'd all love to read them here regardless!

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

If you want to take part, respond to this thread by the 30th of October and become a part of Wurm history! 

 

We’ll start working on this straight away next month once we’ve got all the materials gathered. To see the end result, keep your eyes peeled for this and many more exciting things to come in Demona's upcoming Valrei International posts!

 

Love, Malena

 

PS: Just a small disclaimer: While we will try to fit as many of your wonderful screenshots, videos and quotes into the video as possible, we may have to choose if there ends up being a huge amount of submissions.

Thank you everyone for your screenshots, videos and comments so far! Keep 'em coming!

 

The older footage the better! It's the really old stuff that's hard to find now.

Hey Malena, check out this topic where i was (and still am, for those hiding out there) trying to gather old screenshots from around the start of Independence:

Not sure if this short story is too long for your text design, still want to share it since it's a cherished memory from my earlier days :)

 

"Decided to explore a far away mountain I have been observing from my deed for a while.

Half way up the cliff a troll clubs me to death.
Did not know you could respawn at a tent.

Tried to retrieve my corpse and the troll killed me again.
With no way to get back, I asked for help in Global.

Got a summon and some help almost instantly.
A veteran player helped me out and probably prevented me from quitting the game."

 

 

If the story is too long:

"For me, Wurm feels like a digital home, where coming back is always a bliss."

 

Edit, forgot to answer these questions!

 


1. Char name:   Xheth - Main

                            Gaspacho: Vyn Priest

2. First contact was around 2012, second try was 2015, started my own deed in 2020 and been playing almost daily since.

3. Coming back to my digital home. The Community.

4. Getting killed by a troll several times. Veteran player helping me get back my items.

5.

1. Ben
2. 2014 on and off
3. If you cannot make it, you can roleplay it... but don't worry, you probably can make it.
4. Each conversation, each fight, each trade and service, each adventure I made and took in this game mean a lot to me, it is not just gameplay that keeps you here.

One of my favorites from back when Unicorns had colors.wurm.20181004.2321.jpg Also I have a ton of screenshots in the Screenshots feed that you are more than welcome to use. I've seen some good oldies posted by others in there too.

I'm a crusty old vet who's been playing this game on and off for 10 years. This is still one of my favorite picture simply because of how old it is. This was from back in the day when we stood on our horses and all dressed up as little green men. Unfortunately I do not have a lot of saved pictures from back then but I do have this one.
