I just read a post in the pub discussing indie game development. Consumer confidence is low and took another blow with another Too-soon-to-be-released mmorpg named Atlas. People tend to continuously get fooled by marketing adds.
They can't seem to grasp: It's a cartoon NOTHING TO DO WITH GAME PLAY. It's a web site and synapse NOTHING TO DO WITH GAME PLAY.
Countless times over again, going on 20 years this trick works. True it's survival for development.... But facts are facts the players are left in the cold. Poke-and-hope with a huge chance for let down.
Why here, Why now ? I sat here for 20 minuets reflecting on hope.
From here i'll keep it short: - Stormhaven Studios 100 % - Visionary Realms 60% - All others 0%
Nothing to do with content, but confidence of quality.
