What other games influenced the devs?

Postby edward » Sun Apr 08, 2012 5:15 am

I can think of one other on the android platform with very similar questing mechanics (albeit vastly insuperior ones) called fallen.. places? or lost realms or something ;) But this mostly reminds me of an old mega drive or snes game where the monsters also appeared on cards. That's just presentation wise. There's a lot of the usual fantasy mmorpg/rpg tropes at work here, I was just curious which ones were most influential to the game creators?

I'm sure other Venan-folk will chime in here, but when I was thinking about Book of Heroes development, I was thinking about a bunch of different games. First, I was looking at what was currently available as an RPG in the free-to-play space. In that sense, I played a lot of games like Mafia Wars, Kingdoms Live or Dragone Age Legends. As far as more traditional RPGs go, I'm a huge fan of early Final Fantasy games. I know people here at the office are also fans of Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment, Baldur's Gate, and the Diablo series. We wanted Book of Heroes to feel like an "MMO on the Go!", so we looked at our experiences playing World of Warcraft (for the Alliance!) and more recently Star Wars: The Old Republic (for the Republic!).

Well, I'm the odd man out, actually - I'm not really an MMO player (I played a bit of EQ2, but I try to keep that to myself), so a lot of my inspirations come from single-player RPG's. I'm a particularly huge fan of the Elder Scrolls games and stuff like The Witcher, but I'm also a big fan of older adventure/RPG's like Quest for Glory. So a lot of the quests and storyline pull inspiration from stuff like that :D

Guilty as charged for Hearthstone. Minecraft is for the kids though. Most of these games are either for them or for research.
