    This news is most exciting! I can't contain my chills!
    Your Facebook seems inviting and promises some thrills.
    I hope this secret project that has long been developed
    will be a popular object in which many get enveloped.
    Here's hoping that this new game will be both fun and meta.
    Oh and by the way-can I be in the beta? :)

    I was tempted to say something on fb about that, I couldn't help laughing when I saw it. It fits the post perfectly!

    Hmmm... I wonder, what could possibly go wrong with this sort of idea?

    (As an aside, this is but one of the reasons why women generally live longer than men and, yes, it's a kind of revenge ;)

    Also, spot the cat in the background? Man, that's one cat that's seriously prepared for disaster)

    Advice to Hans: Walk away. Walk away as fast as you can; don't even bother turning off the mics :)

    I hope it's an hack and slash.
    An action RPG could be great also even if I think Runic Games is really good at making hack and slash.

    Looking forward for what you've been working on! New Hack'n Slash? :D

    Well, as I remember, this is not a hack and slash.

    I think this is a sandbox with arcade fighting.

    I beleive a good sandbox games with a good fighting system could be good too. If that's the case, a lot of people will compare it to Trove !

    What's a sandbox game?

    Do fighting games still make profit? I believe there was a recent Mortal Kombat release did that work out good?

    PC port of MKX is still a mess, but the game sold well across all platforms.

    Killer Instinct is coming to Windows 10(Free to play), Tekken 7 is X1 and PS4, and Street Fighter V apparently had enough pre-orders to mess up the beta servers(or Capcom/Sony just messed up), Sony and Capcom has been Marketing SFV much more than Capcom did with all versions of SFIV, also SFV has a PC version(beta for it starts in fall).

    Sandboxes are games where you are free to do whatever you want (or well, that's the idea), without having to play the story quests. Games like GTA, Minecraft or Skyrim would qualify.
  • ZiddersZidders Posts: 14,345 ✭✭✭
    I don't think I'd count GTA as a sandbox game. You can't really do all that much aside from the main missions in it. I don't count running over people and doing crazy stunts as the sort of thing people envisioned when they came up with the term 'sandbox' game. I also don't think Skyrim qualifies either. Everything in the game is scripted and the creative aspect of it (modding) takes place outside of the game.

    I think Minecraft is one of the few and best examples of a sandbox game that we have and even then it's limited. There's only so much the average player can learn to do without depending on others or outside information. To me a true sandbox game would be one that is as close to reality as possible.

    I disagree. GTA and Skyrim are both 'sandbox' games in the sense that you have the freedom to go where you want and do what you want (within the confines of the game engine and features that the game offers) while ignoring the story missions entirely. I can see what you are saying by only including Minecraft, but I think having an overly elevated standard for what is/isn't a sandbox game is just wishful thinking on your part. My opinion is you don't have to be able to reshape the world into the image that you want for a game to qualify as a sandbox game.

    I too remember they were talking about doing something different. Max said something about maybe wanting to do a sandbox RPG, Minecraft inspired. Less monster slashing, and more resources & building. I am not sure the current hack & slash audience fits into that, though. Lowers the tempo way too much.
