Default M&M: Heroes VI - Interview @ Hooked Gamers

March 22nd, 2011, 14:02
Might & Magic: Heroes VI Lead Level Designer Julien Pirou and Associate Producer Max von Knorring have been interviewed at Hooked Gamers:
Hooked Gamers: In Might & Magic Heroes VI, there will be a heavier focus on developing your character and players will be able to (quote) “create the hero you want to embody”. It certainly sounds exciting, but what does it all mean? And how does the Reputation system fit into all of that? What does it do?

Max: In previous Heroes the random factor was quite high – when your Hero was leveling up, you had a choice between several skills but they were picked randomly. So at times it could be frustrating because you could never build the Hero you wanted.

Julien: In Heroes VI we wanted to propose something a bit different, where you can always see all the paths you can take to build your Hero, so the choice is really up to you. And of course we’ve brought back the Might and Magic classes for each faction.
The reputation is another way to emphasize the fact you can now build your Hero to reflect your favored playstyle. A Blood Hero will be more an aggressive, damage-dealer kind of Hero, while a Tears Hero is more about support and economy.
More information.

I rarely play anything that isn't pure crpg, but I've always made exceptions for HoMM and King's Bounty. I still haven't played either expansion, saving those for a rainy day.

Obviously a typo with Max von Knorring.

No one asked the question….where is the main series of games…might and magic?

If you don't stand behind your troops, feel free to stand in front.

I think you just answered it

It's all about "dollars", and they obviously don't consider that style of crpg to be profitable enough to meet their expectations in today's market.

Let's think this to the end : What does this kind of thinking mean for today's markets ?

“ Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction.“ (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
