Inspiring game in development: Chaos Chronicles

Postby youngneil1 » Tue Dec 18, 2012 12:29 pm

I just stumbeld upon this really interesting looking game project - good times for fans of the old RPG (turn based, SSI Gold Box inspired). Many good design considerations are laid down on their homepage, definetly worth a read to get addtional inspiration for IceBlink (and vice versa, I e-mailed them about IceBlink, fans of this RPG agme style shoudl rally as much as possible):

Yup, I have been following their project for awhile now. They post some good write ups about their development and design choices every once in awhile.

Beat me to it then - sigh, me being the slowest SMS typer ever as well as the only sentient being (besides the three eyed, multi legged salami living in my refrigerator) not on Facebook, I am still proud to have found out about this all on my own, yepp ;-).

I can recommend rpgwatch for news... Friendly site, which has been following chaos chronicles for a while. It's also where I heard about solenttar! :)

This does look great though. Just hope they get a good balance of exploration and choice in there in addition to the ace hex turn based combat... I can't say that without drooling....

Sadly, Chaos Chronicles seems to have hit legal problems....

Read that one, too :( . Looks like this bitComposer publisher is in serious trouble (they also are behind "The Citadel" as publisher which just did a totally buggy and surprise release on steam).

Very sad :(
On a positive note, at least iceblink will never have to deal with these types of problems :D
