After completing my initial project, "Nations at Risk," I made the decision to embark on a new game, leveraging the invaluable experience I gained during its development.
So, what sets this new endeavor apart?
Comprehensive game planning and design. I'm committed to investing significantly more effort into game design before diving into the code. This means covering all phases, including research, meticulous planning, balancing, prototyping, setting up a closed beta server, and, ultimately, creating a comprehensive game design document with meticulous details.
Technology and code quality. No more cutting corners. This time around, it's all about doing things right and ensuring scalability is a top priority.
Harnessing the power of AI to continuously generate new, interactive, and captivating game content.
No rushing. My focus is on quality rather than quick wins. I aspire to create a legendary nation-simulation game.
Mobile apps. While it will remain a browser game, I also plan to offer it as a mobile app for both Android and iPhone users.
Potential collaborations. Although no formal agreements have been finalized yet, I'm open to the possibility of collaborating with others on this project, which would genuinely delight me.
Innovative and modern features. I aim to incorporate contemporary features and game mechanics.
So why am I undertaking this ambitious endeavor?
Simply put, I have an enduring love for this genre, dating back to my teenage years, and my passion for these games has never waned. I believe that humanity deserves a next-generation nation-simulation game, and I'm determined to build one.
As for the game's release timeline:
Currently, my focus is on research and idea development. The initial lines of code may start taking shape around February 2024, with the first closed beta version potentially becoming available in mid-2024. Beyond that, I can't provide further details at this juncture, considering the factors mentioned above.
Regarding a Discord server for the new game:
There's presently no need for a new Discord server.
