Vanguard - Interview @ Stratics
Stratics talks with Sigil about the company's upcoming MMORPG, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.
Stratics: How did Vanguard start? Were you having lunch one day and the idea struck? Or was the game a long term plan from EQ days?
Sigil: When Sigil was founded, the original dozen or so employees wanted to make the next step in online gaming. The phrase “third generation” stems from this desire. With EQ, they proved it was possible to create a massive 3D world and have it be a success. With Vanguard though, it was the opportunity to create a MUD-esque style game, knowing what worked and what didn’t in first and second gen games, with the most modern and advance graphics. This time around, we know what to expect and we’re planning Vanguard out for the long haul. As for where the inspiration came from – it’s just the game we’ve wanted to make. The game we’ve always wanted to develop but lacked the advanced enough technology to do it until now.
