Today’s Episode

A promising game, Star Citizen seems to be in trouble. I love space sim games, but, this game may never see the light of day. A new report showcases the damaging saga of Star Citizen. There were lots of people that supported this game, but, Chris Roberts seems to have bitten off more than he could handle. I hope this game comes out. I hope it’s great. This game may turn out to be another No Man’s Sky. Only time will tell. Gamer’s should be excited because the holiday season is almost here. October is the official start of the gaming holiday season. Game on!

Checklists can help drive storytelling, but, it lacks that creative element. Game developers should try to find a balance in this process. I’m not saying have no deadlines, but give enough time for developing a story. Stories are great in an abstract form, but sometimes developers lose something in the process. This is of time constraints or budget. I think it’s time to look at the story again because your game suffers from terrible a story.
