First of all thanks you very much David for spending sometime with us and to give us some words.
Before speak about the Reawakening, I have to say that I love RTS, but how do you describe Dreamlords? In a few phrases, what do you say to “sell” it to those who don’t know the game?
The Reawakening is a unique blend of two very popular genres: RTS and RPG. If you like those, you’re in for an extremely nice surprise! But don’t take our word for it, have a look for yourself!
Do you think the game is projected to a special sector of gamers? From your point of view is a difficult game?
The Reawakening will appeal to many types of players but of course primarily to those into RTS and RPG games. It’s a bit different than most other games but if you are familiar with strategy games you will soon get a feel for how it works. As you will lead a whole civilization it’s a bit more challenging than running around with a single character and level up but our players appreciate that we give them something they actually have to think about ;)
Around the matter because we are here. Why Lockpick Entertainment decided to develop this expansion set? ¿How long has the expansion been under development? And the most important question for our readers, ¿when can we expect the reawakening of the dreamlords?
Well, first of all let me clarify that The Reawakening is a standalone follow-up to Dreamlords, not an actual expansion.
We started planning for it early last autumn and have been hard at work since October and you should expect to see The Reawakening sometime during Q2 2008.
Watch this space. ;-)
Did you find troubles in the development process? Are you satisfaced with the result?
Well, there are always hurdles in any process and this project is no exception, but in all we’re happy with the progress so far. We learned a lot from the development of Dreamlords which has helped us. Also, the aid from our players has proved to be invaluable.
And yes...we are more than happy the way The Reawakening has turned out.
What’s the state of the closed beta right now? Are you building the game over the players?
We’ve been in the closed beta stage for a while now and things have come along exactly the way we’ve wanted it to. When saying this I mean that the game has been put to the test and we’ve discovered both bugs and some balancing issues. Perfect. :- )
About the game, what are the main changes that the Reawakening offers to the player? Any special feature to mention? What can you say us about the new user interfaces and about the facelift for Dreamlords in general?
The major change is of course that The Reawakening is completely free to play. The interface has been revamped and we’ve tweaked the rules to allow for an even better game experience. As for new features, there are quite a few awaiting the players. We can’t really reveal that much right now, but one sweet detail is that you will be able to bring your Dreamlord with you all the time and that you can equip it with various exciting gear and cool stuff.
