In this episode:
In Episode 85 I am joined by Jonathan to discuss some of his concerns about Wild West Exodus. Jonathan recently posted to the WWX forums with a thread titles “Griping and Whining” and I wanted to get some more of his views from that thread. Overall I think it’s a great discussion and stays very balanced between concerns and positives in relation to the new game WWX.
Following my talk with Jonathan is Question 3 of the Developers Corner. The Developers corner is an 8 part series of segments where Bill has picked out a series of questions to pose to game developers. Three game developers participate in this first series, Toby from GCT, Romeo from WWX, and Dave from BHG. In these three developers we have a new but established game (Bushido), a newly launched game (WWX), and a game still in development (No Future). All three game designers talk about how they tackled the specific scenarios presented in their games. Q3 covers the balance between the Story/Fluff influences on development and the game rules influence.
