The Pleasures of Age of Decadence at RPS
Interview - posted by baby arm on Thu 22 January 2009, 02:12:19Tags: Iron Tower Studio; The Age of Decadence
Rock Paper Shotgun is sporting another Age of Decadence interview. In this edition, VD talks about the demo, Oscar admits he used to think Final Fantasy 7 was the greatest RPG ever, and Kieron namechecks the Manic Street Preachers.
RPS: It’s been a while since we’ve last talked. Care to bring RPS’ readers up to date with what you’ve been up to? What’s Age of Decadence’s progress?
Vince D. Weller: We are slowly getting there. A combat demo should be released in a few months. The demo will be set in an arena district of one of the towns and will show what the game looks like. You’ll fight different opponents, ranging from local scum and captured criminals to gladiators and professional fighters looking for easy coins. You’ll fight against single fighters and groups; fast, lightly armored opponents and heavy, ironclad juggernauts. This should give you a good feel of the combat and give us plenty of feedback to work with.
In unrelated news, the game was voted as the second most anticipated RPG by RPG Watch readers. We were offered a good publishing deal by a large North American publisher, although I’m not sure if that’s the direction we’d take. And a French gaming magazine did a several page AoD article/interview. Needless to say, we appreciate this support.
