Let's talk about our upcoming plans for Eador.
Starting with the "elephant in the room" — tutorial in Imperium. Lack of any guidance for new players on Imperium's release was one of the more obvious shortcomings overlooked by the previous team. Because the game came out as a stand-alone expansion, we can't just let it stay that way.
So we've created a completely reworked tutorial (in comparison to MotBW), to make the game more accessible and clear for everyone — even those who never played Eador before. We've closely looked at how streamers approached Imperium for the first time, and in some cases they had to spend about 5 minutes to find how to end their turn. We hope such problems will no longer arise.
Along with the tutorial we'll try to include fixes the most annoying gameplay errors in the next patch — coming next week.
We also noticed that many players (even from Genesis times) enjoy creating their own "sandbox" out of the game: lock AI in its own capital, so that it wouldn't bother them, and just explore the map however they like. This led us to creating a new separate mode, that we called the same way — Sandbox.
This mode allows you to create your own little campaign with a set of parameters. AI's behavior can be tweaked to your liking, so it would be possible to play on a gigantic map while only exploring provinces, fighting guards and collecting rare sets. We'll talk more about this mode next week.
The Sandbox Update is planned for release before the end of May. We also have more news and announcements for Eador on they way — stay tuned!
This is an update from the new Snowbird Games administration.
This week, main investor of Snowbird Games studio took decision to dismiss the development team. Reasons for this being the unsatisfactory results of Eador. Imperium, as well as the slow development rates of Blood & Gold: Caribbean! — two primary projects of the studio. Right at the start of 2017 the investor did an independent code examination and had a talk with developers. As a result, it was decided to let go of the people behind both of these projects and invite new specialists.
New administration is not yet ready to announce its immediate plans on further development. It is also unclear whether the Snowbird Games brand itself will be preserved. At the moment people from the renewed team are preparing their own feedback on Eador and Blood & Gold. After agreeing on what's the next step should be with administration, new plans will be posted in this blog, as well as in Steam community hubs of both projects. This blog will be kept as means of communication with the audience for the time being. New information should be provided during the next week.
