Fallen Earth interview
Fallen Earth interview [ Game -> Interview ]

More info on Person: Christophe Watkins | More info on Game: Fallen Earth

Christophe Watkins has been interviewed at MMORPG.COM. He's the Vice President of Icarus Studios, the company making Fallen Earth, a PA RPG.

What's the word on community? I.E. when are we getting an official forum and when will the development team be communicating more actively with its followers?

It has been our strategy and desire from day one to show, then to talk.

We have self funded this company and game, and we spend money very cautiously. All of our money until now has been spent where it matters, the game and the underlying technology and tools.

We release information when we know 100% if and how any particular feature or element will be in the game. Opening forums too early only amounts to increased hype, saying things you might not be able to implement, etc... all of which can lead to frustration later on.

The bottom line is: we are EAGER to communicate more with our fans, believe me, but we feel we don't deserve your time and attention until we have something to put in your hands and play with. We're picky and we want to do it "right" and not rush the game launch. There are so many games to choose from these days, we want to make sure we meet the high expectations of our fans and deliver what they've been waiting for, a killer game. Simply put we want to take the best strategy and action of Shooters, and the rich story depth and character development of RPGs, and put them all in a massive zoneless world with a beautiful ecosystem.

I am having a hard time being interested. Though the only MMORPG I've ever liked is World of Warcraft...
