may have launched with a bang, but that bang appeared to be less of a gunshot and more of a car backfiring. Vogster Entertainment
was met with somewhat mixed reviews
, moved to a free-to-play model
, and found itself banned in Australia
. But the game persists, and executive producer Matt McEnerney recently sat down
to discuss issues ranging from the Australia ban to the game's focus.
In a rather refreshing moment, McEnerney flatly states that the game is not for everyone, going on to state that those players who fall under Bartle's classification
of Explorer or Socializer will be less likely to enjoy the game. It's a positive mark of candor, and certainly helps strengthen McEnerney's points on what the gae is trying to do and what it's best at. The interview also covers the current endgame option, whiich focus heavily on PvP amidst the game's warring families of gangs.
On the Australia ban, the producer's statement is essentially one that the government can ban the game from shelves but not hard drives -- which strikes us as a little criminal, but when you're talking about a game called CrimeCraft
, do you really expect much different? Those interested in the game should take a look at the full interview
, which is a bit more honest in places than we've come to expect from the genre.
