Frozenbyte's next game

Postby Wizard » Fri Jun 17, 2005 11:52 am

Lets discuss what Frozenbyte's next game will be after Shadowgrounds.
I hope it will be a Action Racing Simulation RPG with RTS and TBS elements! That would be cool! :lol:
Now seriously, do you think that they are going to continue with action line and make Shadowsgrounds 2 or will they use the name Preyground for a new game? Or will they start making something totally new like racing game? Or will they fail and goto bankruptcy?
Discuss! And devs can also take part in the discussion :wink:

Personally, I think that if Shadowgrounds is a success they will either make an expansion pack or Shadowsgrounds 2. And hopefully they will use Preyground name for some other game :)

"All of the above", that would be a sight :lol:

Even if Shadowgrounds gonna be a really good game (wich i think its gonna be) doesnt it meen that it will sell very good. I hope they marked the game as much as they can, and im sure gona do what i can.

i hope there next game gonna be a action game, because they look to be very good at that type of games. who knows, they might be killer at makeing rpg games too.

It might. You never know. I know this dev. who has been in gaming business over 10 years making RPG's and he sells quite a lot of games eventhough he doesn't have huge marketing department :)

Quite propably it will be a action game. Don't see them trying to take risks by making totally different game though they might suprise us.

Heh, great topic.

We'd love to do an expansion pack or Shadowgrounds 2. It really depends on how the game sells, and how publishers react to it.

It might be that we will do a "small" project after Shadowgrounds, and then come back to the Shadowgrounds franchise if there's enough demand.

What that small project might be remains to be seen... we have tons of ideas and it's really about picking the best one. I think we will always have some action elements in our games but we're quite "open" to other genres also.

One thing's for sure; we will not go bankrupt. We've basically made Shadowgrounds from our desire to get into the industry (Finnish sisu 8) ), so we have not taken huge loans or anything. Everything we get from Shadowgrounds goes directly to us and to new projects.

I voted RPG since I love RPGs but what I like about Shadowgrounds, is that it's one of the rare games where you actually view things from above and it's an action game, not like Sims or whatever those things are called. I think that this game will sell pretty well and I've told many friends about it and some of them have said they might buy it and one said he'll just download it off the internet but I'd like to kick his rear end :D

My vote goes for ADD-ON!
( including multiplayer support, new monsters, items, vehicles and a level editor! )

And add-on or number 2 would be awesome! I really love this game! New monsters is a must - one's like those snakes where they just suddenly appear are awesome!

And lots of upgrades, or even an upgrade tree for each gun that would be a good concept.

Also something to make it easier to mod, and customize, i.e. I do a lot of 3D work in 3D Studio Max, and something that allows me to use a 3D program (I hear that you use Lightwave 3D, so that would be easy enough for you to creat a plugin for) then export the models to be used in Shadowgrounds.

I would loved to see one more rts game what would look like same as Hostile Waters. I loved that game so much that when years passed I had played it around 70 times through. And MAAN I loved it EVERY SINGLE TIME. It is just so mind blowing. I could play it even nowadays because it is soo superior game.

Only thing what I wanted to it after 60 times of playing it through was that you could build your fighting machines at same way like you build your robots in robot arena 2.

Or at least you could build your machines from finished parts and mixing them you create your own air, sea and land based fighting machines.

Actually, though I chose ACTION, maybe a rts set in a similar world would be a good idea, the graphics of shadowgrounds would certainly lend themselves to a good old fashioned RTS. I get a bit frustrated with the new crop of RTS that seem too bogged down in lenghthy cut scenes and cinematics, I prefer the older ones like Dune 2 and populous.

Yeah, a RTS based on Shadowgrounds, how cool does that sound?

Dune 2... Were there some guys called mentats babbling a lot of about something? I'd rather watch cutscenes and cinematics of Command & Conquer and Homeworld :P

Shadowgrounds is a great game in and of itself. Most of the other genre types are saturated. I'd like to see an expansion with multiplayer coop (internet), and lots of use of vehicles, and such things # for example: one person drives, and the other operates a gun on the vehicle.

Expansion pack all the way. 8)

Game developers really need to stick to where their good at. For instance, crappy game develoers can stick to their stupid simulations, decent RPG creators (D&D, Black Isle, etc.) can stick to makin awesome RPG's...and good ol' Frozenbyte can hopefully get in on the creation of some nice Action games...
