STORY

I suggest you to make something only a software legend could possibly do ( Well i have the plans and faith it can be done with a helping hand ); a strategy game of course ; Billions of players in one single world map interacting with each other ( Using cloud and distributed parallel processing ), cross platform in every sense ( use vulkan ), so graphically intensive and real world stimulation ( use c++ to do the heavy lifting ); A game which can be played both online and offline ( Just like the matrix film - you can transfer all object between your personal computer and the online world ), so much addictive and endless possibilities. I prefer the GUI somewhat like the Age-Of-Empire’s ( light and easy to grasp and understand ) with the advances in Rise OF Nations ( But everything should be scaled in-order to create a reality sense. It takes time and pain ; But the result would be sweet and rewarding ; If you are looking for a cake walk i suggest you check out game engines like unity for this one. ( But for the above game you have to build it from the base - right from the game engine ):- And remember one thing --we have millions and billions of similar strategy games in the market most of them shutting down with empty communities to support.

Consider my opinion as an expansion plan; so let’s storm the ideas about a game for 1000 and upgrade it later to a whole new level. As my teammates have mentioned - java is indeed a great programming language both portable, powerful and easy to work with :- but when roughly estimating the computational resources at the server side it really frightens me. Java is a rapid application development programming language :- if you write games in java it indeed work but lags performance; i would like to remind you from the facts that most of the 3D games are build using cpp and c ( also same with the game engines ); so resource and computational cost when using java is to be brainstormed to a great extend before starting development. But we can certainly consider java as the front end… Reminder :- java codes can be reverse engineered and manipulated to a great extend

Have you guys considered using React Native / Node.js / Socket.io (Javascript) , I would assume you want to make this as cross platform as possible to have the biggest reach, this way you write the game once, have a single code base, but export to multiple platforms like iOS and Android (will actually let you use both Javascript and native OS language together, ultimately it all compiles to the native platform).

#Node.js and Socket.io/WebSockets can easily handle a server of the size you need in real time. Also if you want to make it 3D, there is an option for that as well:

Thank you for your insight! There is a full web development stack called meteor that includes node.js and react in the stack, with other things like mongoDB. I think it would be a great option to consider.

I think if you could make something similar to crusader kings 2 online mmo. That would kill it.

I am planning to make this game the choice of gamer. It’s up to a gamer what he want to be, politician, driver, army commander, politician, Educator, City planner etc… virtually anything is possible in this game. Giving them the ultimate freedom.
