Excited about Avellone being involved, just concerned about the studio not having any experience. There have been some rather dodgy rpg's released recently by some small relatively unknown studios. The dwarves and Sword Coast come to mind. I certainly don't have any high expectations even if CA is involved. Just hope he doesn't destroy his reputation over this.
What reputation? He seems to work on any game that he is asked to work on at this point. His career at the moment seems to be more of a glorified KS stretch goal than an actual narrative designer.
I would love him to focus on a project or two, instead of writing for multiple games at once. Then I could actually expect something from a game he is working on, instead of wondering how little work he actually did on the project and how he was paid and used to get some name recognition for the game.
I think that's the point It would be fantastic if he had complete control creative control of a game. He still had a good reputation currently, which will suffer if he continues the way he's been going.
Well, he also doesn't get any younger, so maybe he will keep this up for a while, to recharge his creative batteries? Let's wait and see.
As for the game:
- They aren't experienced as I understood it. Some of them worked on the old rpg "Evil Island" and "Heroes V". They just have to heave a game like this in their current team. Let's see, how it turns out.
- "Kingmaker" does read like one big stronghold-quest. Works fine for me! I love me some rival barons to battle and my homebase to defend.
- I'm interested in the setting. Isn't the Pathfinder one of those weird worlds, where my medieval warrior can fight monsters from space? That sounds pulpy enough to be very fun and could give them some ideas for interesting set pieces.
- I'm curious how much threads will ask the developers, if they have any romances planned .
