* Why CRPGs should let you control a 6-person party!

* The benefits of small vs. large development teams

* Why CRPGs should be about balance, with no one element (combat, story, characters, etc.) standing out.

* Why AD&D 2nd edition was tough to implement and the advantages of 5e

* Why you might want to reconsider having a voice actor for your player character

* Why Neverwinter Nights Toolset is still better than Unity or other tools for prototyping a modern CRPG

* Are we just getting too old to appreciate modern triple-A CRPGs?

Matt Chat - Kickstarting Free Software

by Myrthos, 14:47

On his blog, Matt Burton discusses free software and game development and if an open source game can be kickstarted.

First, a bit of history. As some long-time followers know, I used to be something of a cheerleader for the free software movement, doing cover features for Free Software Magazine and writing articles on it for Armchair Arcade. At the time, I was convinced that GNU/Linux was the future I wanted to fight for, and that anything other than 100% free software was unethical. To put it short, I had drunk the Kool-Aid.

My views started to shift partly in response to an email exchange I had with FSF founder Richard Stallman. Stallman told me that even he didn’t think games ought to be free; just their code. Creative assets (music, graphics, etc.) could and should still be protected. The impression I got was that his fight for free software didn’t include entertainment; just utilities, instructional material, or other “useful” wares.

These views shifted further when I began learning more about how real-life game development worked. In particular, I learned that most games aren’t written from scratch; rather, they rely heavily on proprietary packages, libraries, or entire engines they license. In short, they aren’t in a legal position to make their code free. Arguably, you could insist that developers avoid doing so, but that seems to be imposing an unfair burden on them in my opinion.
