Default Re: Game questions


To clarify: It wasn't my intent actually, to reinvent older games. I sometimes like to extract certain mechanics or elements of a game (or games) I liked in the past, and "rewrap" it with some unique ideas of my own, or take it in a different direction than the original games did.

Nanotech is a good example; it took some ideas from a past game, but eliminated (what I felt) were annoying flaws in the design of the inspiration game (in this case, the unbalanced fighting and weapons in the late game, the "arcadey" nature of the game at times, the tedious micromanagement of the end game) and made it a pure planning/strategy game, and added the laywers, judges, and the other elements to flesh out the detail.
