Gas Powered Games has announced a new fantasy RTS, named Kings and Castles. Here is a frightening video blog from GPG Boss Chris Taylor.
The press release says that Kings and Castles is “an epic real-time strategy game for the PC and next-generation consoles. This one-of-a-kind experience will let players take on the role of one of three powerful kings who are vying for control of an all-new, original fantasy world.”
In other words, something we have seen before in a setting we haven’t seen before. I’ll try to restrain my enthusiasm.
The interesting thing here, kicked off by that video of madness, is that GPG is planning on walking gamers through the development process step by step.
Future installments will take fans step-by-step through the design process, discussing the creation of prototypes, the work that goes into creating the visual look and feel, while others will cover the proper care and feeding of chickens.
I might not stick around to watch Taylor play with his barnyard pets, but I am actually interested in this behind the scenes stuff. When I see something cool, I’ll be sure to link to it.
