Steamforged Posts Godtear: Who is it For? Article

You can please some of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time. That’s just a general truth. Not every game is going to be for every gamer. But that does mean that every game should be for some gamer. It’s matching the game with the gamer that’s important. And, over the course of several articles, Steamforged is looking to show you what type of gamers they’re aiming their upcoming minis game, Godtear, at. The first of these articles is up now.

From the post:

When a new game comes along, it’s difficult to know what to expect. Sure, it’s easy to look at the visuals and read the soundbites, but games are so diverse and so varied that such things barely scratch the surface. Over a series of blog articles, we’d like to scratch through that surface a bit to show you what lies beneath. We’ll definitely dig deeper into the Champions that feature heavily in this character-driven miniatures game. We’ll also look more closely at the unique turn structure that combines elements of pitched battle games with elements of alternating-activation skirmish games. We’ll also provide ongoing information about how the game continues to grow throughout the Early Access programme.

In this very first blog of the series, however, we want to focus on who this game is for. It’s easy to get caught up in the rules and mechanics, but we really want to begin at the beginning – Who should get excited about Godtear?
