I recently posted on Indie DB about my project, Subvert, regrading a change of direction. This was in response to community feedback, industry vet advice and, above all, a team consensus.
In a nutshell, we’re starting over, but not really. Cryptic, right?
The new Subvert will most likely have a different title/subtitle and will be a completely different type of game. At the same time, we’ll be keeping a surprising large portion of the initial design in place. We’re basically trimming the fat. We want to stay true to the core principles of the game, but take on a project of the right scope for our team. As much as we’d love to make the game we originally envisioned, it’s not in the cards right now, and making a half-assed version of that wouldn’t be fulfilling to us, the players or anyone.
I will share more in the coming days about the specific changes, but I expect to be posting much more on this blog about them and to post progress every step of the way.
I’m sure some people will dislike the new direction, but at the end of the day, we need to stay true to ourselves and execute on OUR vision.
Before the rambling progresses, I’ll leave it here.
Have a kick-ass day!
