This project is an interview with the developer of the new indie game that you are interested in. This time, we will deliver a mini -interlocked show to developers “ Demeo: PC Edition “, a dungeon TRPG “ Demeo: PC Edition “, which started early access to PC/Mac for PC/Mac.
This work is a PC version of the Dungeon TRPG, which was released in 2021 in 2021. We will form a party of up to four people and challenge the dungeon. It also supports online multiplayer and crossplay with the VR version. It has already been supported in Japanese. Please see the play repo for detailed games.
“Demeo: PC Edition” is being distributed early for 3,090 yen.
— First, please introduce yourself. What is your favorite game?
TOMMY PALM (TOMMY) Hello. This is Tommy Palm, the founder of the Resolution Games CEO. He is also a game designer. He has been involved in the game industry for more than 30 years since he began to program Komodor 64 as his hobby since the 1980s. He has been in charge of more than 30 concept creators and game designers. The VR version of “DEMEO” and the PC version will be the latest work as Resolution Games.
There are a lot of my favorite games, but some of them are “Nethack”, “HEROES OF MIGHT & MAGIC III”, “Final Fantasy Ticks”, “Pikmin”, and “PUBG”.
――Why did this work developed?
TOMMY First, “DEMEO” was released as a VR only title, and early access to PCs was started the other day, but in fact, the development of the development dates back more than 10 years. Many of the development members, including myself, always dreamed of reproducing the old -fashioned table top RPG experience in video games. I actually wanted to get into the game and experience RPG in a more immersive way. This work embodies our dreams, and for VR and PC, I think that it can provide nostalgia firmly.
―― Please tell me the characteristics of this work.
TOMMY There are some other wonderful digital table top games now. However, many of these works lack the most interesting part of interacting with other people, which is a real table top game.
This work was developed first of all the skill level and the social online multiplayer experience that all play style people can enjoy together. He succeeded in digitizing the table top RPG without impairing the splendor of playing while enjoying the conversation using a pen and paper. And now, we have rebuilt it from scratch for PC gamers so that PC gamers can fully enjoy this.
This work “DEMEO: PC Edition” reproduces everything in the top RPG, from rolling the dice to the point where the frame is moved. In particular, I focused on conversations and exchanges in virtual space. Nevertheless, the hurdle to actually play is lowered (the trouble of finding a big table, anxiety to eliminate the frames, and the trouble of preparing the perfect sweets, etc…. You need to prepare it for playing this work).
――What kind of person do you want this work to play?
I want everyone to play Tommy! It also supports crossplay between VR and PC, so more people can enjoy this virtual experience. Whether you are a beginner in this genre or a dungeon master level player, everyone who likes table top RPG, those who like RPG -style board games, and those who like tactical RPGs will enjoy this work. In this work, the time spent together by players creates a story. It changes a lot every time you play, until you play with each other, teamwork, and group adventure. This is due to the play style of each player and the semi -random elements of this work.
――When is an early access planned? What elements will be added in the future?
Transplanting TommyVR works to a PC was a new experience for us. Still, I think the first one was good in DEMEO. Feedback from players is very important, and it is important that the UI and operation methods are in line with the expectations of PC gamers. I think that early access gives you the opportunity to develop with the community and make this work the best. On top of that, the early access of this work is scheduled for about a year.
Regarding the elements to be added in the future, we plan to add more content on all platforms. The development team is working on the update with all his might, so please look forward to the details of the details.
――Please tell us your impressions released as an early access.
TOMMY There have been many very valuable feedback from the community. Like VR players, we will work on development so that PC gamers can provide perfect works.
— Is there any work influenced by this work?
TOMMY Yes, there are many games that have played as a child and have built a passion for this genre. We played a lot of RPGs like “DRAKAR OCH DEMONER” and “Mutant” in spending a childhood in Sweden in the 1980s. On the other hand, when it was in the United States, I was really addicted to “Dungeons & Dragons”.
――What had an impact on the development of the new Coronavirus?
TOMMY Certainly, the new Corona has influenced the way of development. Most of the development was to work remotely. However, in such a case, the splendor of VR is demonstrated. Even if I wasn’t in the same place as the other members, I felt like I was together, and in fact, we were developing this work in this work. For example, he had a weekly development session with Mike Booth (he is one of the creative directors of this work and is also involved in the development of “Left 4 Dead” and “Counter-Strike: Condition Zero”). Lives in California and other members are in Stockholm. Still, it was as if everyone was developing in one place.
――Is it okay to distribute or monetize this work?
Tommy Yes, it’s okay.
– Finally, please give a message to Japanese readers.
TOMMY I am very happy that this work was released for Japan. Thank you for your support. We will deliver a lot of “DEMEO” this year, so please look forward to it!
