An interview with the developer of the new indie game I’m worried about this project. This time, DOOR 407 Development, Siege Durable Strategy, “ Diplomacy Is Not An Option ” to Developers, will be delivered to the Developer.
This work is a strategy game that combines elements such as city creation, tower defense, RTS. The player struggles to protect the castle and the feasibility from the enemy of the Castle, one Castle. In the main battle element, from the castle wall and the pussy machine and the bow and arrow, it is noted that a long-distance attack is set up, and tactical thinking is required such as remaining the enemy army placed out of the castle and removing the enemy army in the kill zone.. Be careful of the sanitation environment in the castle so that no plague does not occur, or the resources calculated from the territory well, and focus on the administration are also essential. At the time of article writing, it is not Japanese.
“DiPlomacy Is Not An Option” is early access delivery for 2,570 yen.
– First of all, please introduce yourself. What is your favorite game?
Oleg Hello, it is a lead game designer in this work, and is an OLEG that is also a joint founder of Door 407 studio. The development team is located in Russia. Most of the members live in Moscow and Zerenogado (small town in the Moscow region), and the remaining members are scattered in various places in Russian.
“What is your favorite game?” Is a difficult question. I have played a lot of games so far, so choose one game is not a simple task. Especially I like quite a wide range of games. Strategy, urban construction, and sandbox games are often playing, but sometimes I will play a game like a shooter. I’m always done, but I enjoy playing. Finally, add to “Pyramida” indie strategy game and “Death Stranding”.
-Why did you start developing this work?
As I mentioned on OLEG, I played a lot of strategy games. There is also a love, and it is important to understand what it is. The game I made for the first time “Ancient Planet” left a lot of bright and vivid memories, and now I enjoy the development of this work. I’m really lucky that I was able to create an enthusiastic development team for this genre. One member is working on RTS for PCs, but not only for work, but also enjoying and developing from the bottom of your heart.
– Please tell me the characteristics of this work.
It is a place to fill OLEG dead warriors. (Lol)
– What kind of person do this work do you want to play?
Oleg I made this work to be delighted by the old strategy game fans. Even though I was thinking of playing only a few turns only in the evening, I was a guy that was in the morning when I realized.
– How long have you been planning for early access? What factors will be added in the future?
The specific plan of the OLEG official release can not be announced yet. Currently, we are collecting feedback and suggestions from players, and we are looking at the correct direction of future development. Depending on the number of systems to be added to the game in the future, it will be officially released in September this year or will be in the first half of 2023.
In the future, a single player campaign consisting of 12 missions or more is definitely added. One of the selections greatly affects the expansion of the game. For example, a specific unit type is added to the player’s list. Alternatively, you can get the ability to build a special building.
Also, both the enemy side and the player side, of course new factions are also added. There are also some ideas to give diversity by the castle’s siege. Therefore, you have to introduce a new system. At least one new mode, and endless mode are also added. In fact, some of them will be added with future updates without waiting for the formal release. We are also examining the most demand map editor from the players.
– Please tell me the impression that you have released as early access.
OLEG I think I was able to work well. Immediately after the start, the user score was 96%, but it has fallen to 89% over a week. However, it is a good result more than expected. Initially, there were technical issues and balance issues. Since the start of early access, bug fixes are made by 24 hours. It is a fact that there was a bug and a balance problem at the beginning of the early access, so it was affected by evaluation and sales. Perhaps this work has a lot of potentials to sell more. Now I am preparing a release scheduled update in the near future, and this hotfix improves the quality of this work and I would be more satisfied with fans. Then you can finally take a break.
– Is there a work affected by this work?
OleG The list of affected games will be quite longer from the old “Knights and Merchants” and “Stronghold” series. Of course, I can not forget the impact of “They ARE Billions”. Campaign plots are influenced by the world history, and specifically, how different cultures have been affected by each other?
– Is there any plan to support Japanese work? Is it possible to translate?
OLEG officially released I would like to add Japanese, and maybe it may respond earlier than it. Odori translation is very welcome. Previously, community members made great calibration work. If you want to participate in localization work, please send a message directly with Discord (my nickname is DeepSpace). Or you can contact us by email.
– Did you have an impact on development by new coronavirus?
OLEG Development Initially, we had no office, and during the pandemic and its limitations, work from home did not affect. However, more than half of the team members got a new corona, and several people were quite serious symptoms. This has affected development and development periods.
– Is it okay to deliver and monetize this work?
OLEG What kind of delivery is also welcome. There is no problem with profiting at all. Please enjoy the viewer as you like using our game.
– Lastly, please give a message to the Japanese reader.
I’m glad that PC games are becoming popular in OLEG Japan. As long as I knew, I think that the household game consoles were popular for the Japanese gamers. But conversely, I have only played the PC transplanted version of the Japanese game. From an action like “Mario” and “Bayonetta” series, I think that everyone in Japan is more good at the game, from actions like “Final Fantasy”. Japan’s games are often difficult to challenge. I am happy to be able to satisfy you as a challenging challenge that this work is good.
