likelyhood of expansions here on BGA?

Post by ferion » 02 January 2018, 17:18

I know it’s probably VERY early to ask, but I do it anyway :-)

Is there any chance for an implementation of (any of) the expansion(s)?

Hi ferion (if you are still around :) ),

Thanks for your suggestion!
Hum, frankly, I would say less of 10% :/
The thing is I commit myself into a long process to develop the original game I am not really willing to dive back into that. The next logical move would be to develop Echoes, which is a wonderful expansion (the most worthy I think), but there is so much to do:

-Introduce new basic mechanisms: bonus icon, forecasting, echoes effects...

-Code the brand new 110 cards (inclunding the 5 new special achievements). Their effects seem to be more complicated in average than the those of the base game.

-Update the graphics of the game. The Asmadi graphics used in BGA are already out-to-date :( even for the base game. The icon layout changed. The frame for dogma effects changed: there is now an additional frame I'd must deal with when writing over the card for translation. This is a tricky-boring job really because it does not add any functionality to the game itself.

If there is any motivating dev around, I would be delighted to explain my code though, so that it can continue the project!
For the moment I prefer to involve more time into developping another game for BGA (a classic card game), that is quite refreshing :)

Thanks!

Tcheby

Cities is (by far) the simplest of the expansions. If you start anywhere, that's where you start.

Tchebychev, I am interested in adding one of the expansions.

Do you think you could give me a kick start? Also, I'm not sure how I would create the equivalent of a feature branch in the dev studio. I don't want to muck with your great work while I'm trying to learn.

Still any need for beta testing? I love the game and would be happy to volunteer some time.

Anyone still working on the expansions? I'd be quite happy to test-play any of them if needed :)
