Gaming in this day and age is a lot different compared to how gaming was 10-15 years ago. Unleashed Fear is a game based on the old school classic gaming that took place “many” years ago.
With Version 3 of Unleashed Fear we hope to combine the new-way of gaming, together with the old school classic gaming style. Continue reading this blog article to find out more on how we want to combine these two realities and how this will change the game itself.
In current day and time there is a lot more possibilities when it comes to playing games and how to construct games.
Back in the days we had big computers with low resolutions, less powerful video cards/memory/CPU and much less resources in general. (Remember browsing the web in IE?!)
Nowadays there’s endless of possibilities, mobile gaming, big and small resolutions touch screens and zooming in options, instant communication with servers and pretty much endless resources.
Our plan is to combine the old classic text-based game-play together with live communication, endless features and of course a much more pleasant experience of playing the game on different devices.
The plan is to re-build the design of the game entirely to make it easier to play the game, more pleasant and enjoyable to play the game and to instantly receive help playing the game. (For new players mainly)
We also want to bring live communication to the server into the game, which will allow for a live chat-box/messaging system, which will allow receiving notification on mobiles/tablets and which allows a much more pleasant way of playing the game. (Less clicking, instant updates and much faster)
Once the live communication and design have been completed we can start working on building apps based on the core of the game, apps that will allow you to easily maintain playing the game in an enjoyable way. (Mobile websites can be slow, not the best of resolutions and the easiest the manage)
These are the 3 main ingredients for Version 3, however we didn’t even mention the countless of new features this could offer for the game.
Below you can find a full list of upcoming changes, these changes will contain a small description together with possible examples or previews.
- Some features might still be changed or adjusted if needed.
- We would also like for you to leave your comments and feedback regarding the upcoming changes, we’d love to hear your opinion!
- Suggestions made by players have been taken into consideration and have been applied as much as possible in the upcoming changes.
- Time tables are currently unknown due to side projects and a very busy real life situation.
- This post will be updated in case anything changes.
