Stardock Future Gaming (from 2013 perspective) [UPDATE 4]

Thursday, September 26, 2013 by Frogboy | Discussion: Stardockians

In the good old days of gaming, the game studios weren’t public and so they could give little sneak peeks and teasers of things they’re working on. 

Unfortunately, the number of indie studios is dwindled and so there’s very little spontaneity in what companies share (which the Xbox One unveil showed us can be quite a bummer).

Below is just some artwork from a few of the things that are in development.

I truly like the parrot, and I think I have a pocket watch that looks just like that... Think everything is looking pretty nice.

Has to be Society right? Although the blue chick in the bath-robe looks very Fallen Enchantress.

Sins of a Fallen Enchantress?

 

I think you may mean Sins of a Galactic Enchantress!

Gal Civ 3, Another Elemental Expansion, Stardocks first try at a space RTS, or "Empire Builder" with some original IP. Demigod 2

The top one looks quite sinister.

Great, I don't know if I can handle another "stalking" charge...

Is it too early for "shut up and take my money"?

What I don't understand is why a developer can't just....tell us what they're working on.

Is there some sort of strategy that I'm not aware of?

Will you be announcing something soon, Frog?

They don't say anything because if in the middle of development something happens, by not saying anything they have nothing to come back and say sorry, but we will no longer be adding this to the game.... keeps the expectations of the game as we don't know what it will be, and when the game is closer to coming out more of the mechanics are set and thus they can begin to describe what exactly they have. In development stage all they can say is that they are working on creating some awesome games that will be set in fantasy and space.

Another reason developers do not say anything is because somebody may take the idea and finish a poorer version of the game and steel the thunder that may be their game they are creating. So, the game will no longer be novel and would probably lose sales as such. Patience is the right word here. Patience.

I think it's more about a studied implementation of marketing. They control relatively precisely where and when their marketing resources are put to use, in order to build the maximum amount of hype and exposure. Instead of driplets here and there, they probably prefer "big" reveals so that it gets covered in internet media.

Brad's good at creating hype, too. Part of the reason Stardock has been so successful. He shows people awesome stuff. One of the perks of being the CEO, I guess.

Is that not Sins? I understand thats primarily Ironclad´s game, but i recall Mr. Frogboy saying they did not go for Homeworld IP all the way, as they already have Sins in their "portfolio". So i doubt they would be doing another space RTS to compete with their own brand.

OFC, it could be something more in a mould of Nexus, vastly different from Sins and not really RTS, neither Empire Builder.

My guess those spaceship screens are from next Galciv. But perhaps they could be future Sins - related? Can we get more info on this, please? I am eager to hear, what are the current plans for Sins brand.

Because no matter how much they tell us, people still ask for more.  If they tell us more, people then ask for even more.

And if they were to tell us absolutely everything, that still won't stop the questions, instead they'll get:

-when will beta start?

-when will it be done?

-etc.

and the even worse:

-why isn't X in the game?

-I don't like Y, can you change it to YY?

-Add Z or else the game sucks

And after game design plans change, as they always do, we'll hear:

-you promised A and took it out, the game now sucks!

-I liked B and now you changed it to BB, change it back please!

They can't win, and when you can't win, saying less is generally better than saying more, and we players have only ourselves to blame
