Etrom - Post Mortem @ RPG Vault
P.M. Studios' Fabio Belsanti has penned a post-mortem on their comic-styled action/RPG, Etrom, for RPG Vault:
As I mentioned before, our main objective was to create a 3D Diablo-like game with an original story and setting, including some innovation in the gameplay. With such a mix, we would have tried to captivate both Diablo players and the most demanding RPG fans. In theory, we - and I particularly - would have been better off targeting more of a niche audience, but our inexperience led us to try to create something that would appeal to almost anyone who loves narrative games with some RPG elements. So wrong! By crossing all target audiences, we attracted, but at the same time disappointed, almost everybody.
