Zantai joined us briefly on the GD discord today and had a few interesting - if vague as usual - things to say.
Zantai: My primary task is not gd these days. It’s also not the town builder.
powbam: so what yer really saying is that you are working on a new unknown game and you aren’t going to tell us what it is even tho its GD2.
Zantai: Gd2 would require significant ramp up by programmers before I even touch it.
I imagine gd fans will be interested in what I’m working on.
I’d be up for doing an RPG in the gd universe some day. One idea we tossed around for that was a prequel in the pre grim dawn era.
powbam: can you say if this game will also be using Unity?
Zantai: It won’t
I totally want to do a gd rts. But it’s not that, maybe some day
One idea I had was to do a faction system where you can get some sub units/structures from a shared pool of factions
powbam: so can we expect a more official announcement of this game in 2020?
Zantai: Maybe, depends how much progress we make
powbam: and this pretty much confirms GD expansions are for sure done. Even tho ive already felt that.
Zantai: I thought I’ve been pretty blunt about a possibility of a gdx3, hah. All things considered, FG did very well, but it just doesn’t make sense for the team and for the game to bloat things with a third expansion. A 10th mastery would just blow up items."
So what exactly is it? Will we hear more in 2020? Stay tuned!
