New possible projects in the works
« on: 08 March 2020, 09:23:14 »
Zantai joined us briefly on the GD discord back at the end of December and had a few interesting - if vague as usual  ;) - things to say.

"Zantai: My primary task is not gd these days. Itís also not the town builder.

powbam: so what yer really saying is that you are working on a new unknown game and you arenít going to tell us what it is even tho its GD2.

Zantai: Gd2 would require significant ramp up by programmers before I even touch it.

I imagine gd fans will be interested in what Iím working on.

Iíd be up for doing an RPG in the gd universe some day. One idea we tossed around for that was a prequel in the pre grim dawn era.

powbam: can you say if this game will also be using Unity?

Zantai: It wonít

I totally want to do a gd rts. But itís not that, maybe some day

One idea I had was to do a faction system where you can get some sub units/structures from a shared pool of factions

powbam: so can we expect a more official announcement of this game in 2020?

Zantai: Maybe, depends how much progress we make

powbam: and this pretty much confirms GD expansions are for sure done. Even tho ive already felt that.

Zantai: I thought Iíve been pretty blunt about a possibility of a gdx3, hah. All things considered, FG did very well, but it just doesnít make sense for the team and for the game to bloat things with a third expansion. A 10th mastery would just blow up items."

So what exactly is it? Will we hear more in 2020? Stay tuned!

Medierra also said this in response to questions in another thread which were added into the above linked thread as well

"We have 13 devs but only 9 of those ever worked on GD or itís expansions. The rest were hired for the town-builder and another project. ; )"

powbam: Is that ďotherĒ project the one Zantai is working on?

"No, Zantai is working on the other, other project. Grava is working on the first other project."

Crate are currently looking to hire a Senior/Lead Engineer and a 3D Artist. 

https://www.crateentertainment.com/jobs/

Crate also said on their Facebook page in response to a question about GD2 that the Unreal engine may be being used for a project.  Another comment said they were working on a new generation of the GD game engine.

So we have:
Zantai's  project which should be of interest to GD fans, but isn't GD2.
Grava's project of which we know nothing more.
A possible project using the Unreal game engine.

It pays to keep an eye on Crate's job adverts.   ;)

"Crate Entertainment is seeking an experienced and creatively-driven artist to help produce monsters for our survival horror game and take a leadership role in defining the look of and modeling characters for our fantasy RTS project that is early in development."

So
Zantai's project which we now know is a small (cough, cough) GD related standalone game
A survival horror game - maybe Grava's project?
Fantasy RTS - using the Unreal game engine?

Don't know.  All I know is there are 4 positions they want to fill on their website.  Have a look for yourself in the link further up.

u were right Medea, its incredibly vague.

Even the website write-up is strange & goofy, i had to search on urban dictionary many of their terms lol

Maybe even their VC backers are gamers (although I doubt it).
