Paradox Interactive has released a seven minute documentary video that goes over their development history, starting with Europa Universalis. From there, the team reveals how each game is connected, and how they try to improve upon their predecessors.
Of course, the video serves not only as a look back, but as a look forward as well. Runemaster is the company's upcoming RPG--a first for the studio. The video shows some new footage of the game in action, a procedurally-generated adventure that spans the six worlds of Norse myth.
With five expansions already out for Crusader Kings II, game designer Henrik Fahraeus admitted that it was becoming "pretty hard to figure out new ways to add to the game." But, that's exactly what he's tasked with doing for Rajas of India, the sixth expansion for Paradox Interactive's game. "We felt that we have to do something really drastic here, so we decided to expand the map fifty percent bigger and push it to the east."
One of the criticisms Fahraeus has of the original game is that the borders of the original map were "fairly unnatural," with "a lot of interesting countries cut in half. An area that should be interesting suddenly became uninteresting." And that's rectified with Rajas of India, which as the title suggests, adds India.
