The developers of cRPG Solasta: Crown of the Magister have released a survey and are looking for player input into the future of (tactical) adventures. Worry not, the team is still working on Solasta but would also like to know players’ tastes before they walk down a new path.
The survey closes at the end of November. You can find it here.
“Alright, so! Let’s talk a bit about game development. As you all know, making a game takes a lot of time… and often quite a few people too! People with different areas of expertise, meaning you can’t really ask a Concept Artist to start fixing bugs all of a sudden. While Programmers & QA are still on the prowl hunting down bugs and fixing them after the game launches, Level Designers may be working on new maps for a future DLC. Meanwhile, the Creative Director is already writing down ideas for potential future games. All of that to say, not everyone will have the same tasks during the life cycle of a game.
Game companies rarely keep working on a single project once their game is out, as not everyone has a lot to do in post-launch! So, since most studios want to keep everyone active and involved, some folks are going to start digging at new projects. And that’s where our survey comes in, we’re curious to know what you guys like when you’re looking for new games.”
About Solasta: Crown of the Magister
In Solasta, you take control of four heroes, each with unique skills that complement one another. Every hero expresses themselves in the adventure, making each action and dialog choice a dynamic part to the story. Players will create their heroes just as they would in a pen-and-paper game choosing their race, class, personality and rolling for their stats.
Discover the shattered world of Solasta: explore ruins and dungeons for legendary treasures, learn the truth of an age-old cataclysm – and stop it from happening again. Delve into long-forgotten dungeons to unearth ancient artifacts, but stay watchful of light and darkness: many dangers hide in the dark, but a light can attract monsters. Some enemies have darkvision, some may flee from your torch…
The game recently received the Primal Calling DLC, adding Barbarians and Druids to the roster.
