How big is the influence of the first generation of gamers on the current development of games? If you grew up in the 80s – 90s, every month there is a celebration of recognition because old characters are revived. And if the developers themselves do not see the bread, a kickstart project will be started where the necessary money will be raised in no time to give an old favorite a new look. The gamers of the first hour now generally have a job and can invest money in a game and equipment.
Short of time due to open worlds?
We’re seeing it again these months with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. A gigantic success that will do the makers no harm, it first DLC pack is already on its way. Nintendo happy, gamers happy: win win situation. With the current technology on both the gamers and developers side, an incomprehensible open world adventure is being created. Twenty years ago you could play games, good luck with that nowadays. You choose other lines, characters anyway: it won’t work. You will only love multiple genres, how are you going to keep up with it all and also grab some daylight left and right? But what if your old heroes don’t just return?
Leisure Suit Larry
Anyone who bought his first games in the 1980s will of course know Larry Laffer. The nerd who always wore a suit and was chasing that one goal: defloration. Yes: a real 18+ game with questions at the beginning that you had to answer in order to play it. A trial and error women’s hunt that led Larry past the roulette and blackjack tables to make money. After all, women are expensive, both in bars and brothels. Was there a market for a new release 25 years after the first Larry? Sierra Entertainment took the plunge and LSL: Reloaded became the first major game to be funded through Kickstarter. In a very short time, 650,000 dollars were raised where half a million was needed: the game was a fact. Although no new game has been announced late Onlinecasinoguide.org we know that an online ****** has recently been launched called Larry ******.
The development of the latest Larry game shows that you certainly don’t have to wait for the big companies to come up with new ideas. NullSpace VR has also understood that and they also opted for a kickstarter project to go one step further. NullSpace is currently developing the Hardlight V(irtual)R(eality) Suit, which will make everything a lot more realistic. From the website: “Suit up to feel every explosion, gunshot and sword fight in VR.” Good luck if you play Call of Duty: WWIII later this year and this is supported. Sensors on various muscle groups of your body so that a hit is actually felt. In addition, it communicates perfectly with the virtual reality glasses and the game knows exactly where arms, legs and hands are located in relation to the head and torso.
Think about the possibilities for old and new games that were made possible thanks to this kickstarter project. So how are you going to experience an open world like Breath of the Wild? We already mentioned Call of Duty and we don’t want to think about Larry in a brothel. For the elderly among us, imagine if you had this suit when the very first DOOM hit the market….
Which old game would you like to see a remake of and what will the latest techniques add to it? Kickstarter maybe?
