Longer Ruin Runs
« on: January 31, 2019, 03:11:53 AM »

My Time at Portia [MTAP]

My biggest peeve with MTAP has been the very small (and fragmented) Ruin explorations (or Dungeon Crawling if you prefer) you set out to investigate.

The thought of exploring dark and damp ruins of a past empire, searching cluttered rooms and abandoned warehouses full of rotting and broken crates, for that one piece of relic. With only the light from your small lamp to illuminate the dark, forgotten places of the world, and emerging victorious, covered in the goop of your vanquished foes! Running scared through mobs of cranky, if not deadly, critters as you make your way back to town to sell (or claim) your hard earned prize. That's the mental image that sprang to mind when I first saw the media for MTAP.

I love MTAP. I really do. And if the Developers love this game as much as the players do, they need to take a good look at the roadmap set out for it. If it doesn't include something that looks like what I just described above, maybe they'll need to have a rethink.

Otherwise, MTAP will just be another one of those 'nice try, but not quite there in the end' games which litter the byways of history.

The current Ruin Runs are short, segmented sections. Why is this?
Is the Game Engine incapable of producing a complete level for the Ruin? Or is it a tracking issue with Mobs?

I would suggest that it would be far more immersive if each 'level' of the Ruin be made as a complete single stage without loading until you find the stairs to go up/down levels. Think of games like DOOM.
