Depths of Peril - Interview @ GG Mania
Steven Peeler from Soldat has been interviewed at GameGuru Mania about their action/RPG with stategy elements, Depths of Peril:
GGMania: Can you give us an overview of Depths of Peril, telling us what the game is all about?
Steven Peeler: Depths of Peril is an action/strategy RPG where you play as the leader of a faction (called covenants in the game) where your main goal is to establish yourself and your covenant as the leaders of your city. Barbarians determine their leaders with battles to the death. The last covenant alive becomes the leaders of the city. To outlast the rest of the covenants you need to carefully use diplomacy until you are strong enough, and then you can declare war and raid your enemies to crush them. Did I mention that barbarians tend to be savage and vicious? :-)
Now if being in a constant battle for supremacy wasn't enough, there is also a world full of monsters that want to destroy the barbarian race and for that matter, all of the good races. So between diplomacy, wars, and raids with the other covenants, the player adventures throughout the world to gain experience, find better weapons and armor, and solve quests for the city. All of these of course help the player and his covenant in their wars with the other covenants by making them stronger.
