The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 463
Chapter 452 .pressure test
Seven days after the Spring Festival, when people returned to the company from home and resumed their work, Hatsune Games’ Steam Platform also announced the winning works of the previous Independent Game Awards.
Among them, “One Hundred Days of Love in the College Entrance Examination” won the award for the best text adventure work based on excellent evaluation and good sales, and the prize money is quite high.
Other games such as “Dark Dungeon” and “Blue Hill” have also won awards in their respective fields.
In this independent game award, at least three games with sales of more than one million were unearthed, dozens of games with sales of more than 500,000, and there are countless more than 100,000, and these are all independent games.
Because of this, many game-related media reported this award as the title of “The First Year of China’s Independent Games” and praised it vigorously.
At the awards ceremony, Xu Rui announced two things besides announcing that he will continue to hold the Independent Game Awards this year.
The first is that the Spring Festival special discounts on the Steam platform will be extended for one week until the Lantern Festival. In the following week, some of the award-winning works of this indie game will also be added to the ranks of discount works.
The second piece is the release time of “Monster Hunter”.
Actually, some media have a premonition about this.
According to the habits of Hatsune games, the announcement of a game will inevitably be accompanied by the approaching of the release date. They will not do things that do not eat cakes. In addition, during the seven days of the Spring Festival, the demo version of “Monster Hunter” is popular. , I believe that the release of the game itself will not run this year.
Many people have guessed that the period from summer to winter this year will happen to participate in the commercial war at the end of the year. From the production cycle, it is also very suitable.
However, Xu Rui’s words still surprised them.
“…I am honored to tell you that “Monster Hunter” will be released on June 16th this year. Yes, this time is exactly two years after the release of “Breath of the Wild”, but in fact, We have spent a longer time designing and polishing this game, and I hope everyone can have their own joy in this new continent.”
As soon as Xu Rui said this, the flashlights under the stage began to click non-stop.
The game that I thought would not be released until at least the summer vacation in August, can be played in June of early summer.
Hatsune Game is really ready this time!
“In addition, before the game is officially launched, we will have two tests to test the load level of the server. Of course, the millions of simultaneous online during the Spring Festival is equivalent to a test in advance, but we are in a rigorous attitude. There will still be two tests in March and May. Among them, the test version in March will be updated with two additional tasks, so that everyone can experience this complex and wonderful world in advance.”
The online function of the demo version of “Monster Hunter” is not always open, but only lasts for a week, that is, until today of the award ceremony. After that, although the demo version can still be used to destroy the dragon, but the online function It’s gone.
The test Xu Rui said is mainly for online functions.
After these seven days of games, many people have discovered that if “Monster Hunter” is played by one player, it is an extremely **** action game that tests the level of operation and mentality. If played by multiple players, not only the difficulty will be much lower. , And more joyous, similar to the feeling of chaos.
At this time, people noticed that “Monster Hunter” was originally a “multiplayer battle” type of action game, and online is the complete body of the game.
This time, “Monster Hunter” has released three trial versions in a row.
General games try their best to hide the content before the game is officially released, and even some games will keep the gameplay secret, and the trial mode of “Monster Hunter”, which is open for players to play, is extremely rare.
According to the thinking of the conventional game company, probably two or three kinds of weapons will be provided, and the monsters are weaker and smaller, instead of the Exterminating Dragon that appears on the cover of the game.
But Hatsune Game is not afraid. It opens all fourteen weapons of the game for players to use. It also introduces the courageous Exterminating Dragon. In just 15 minutes of hunting, people feel the core charm of the game.
Shen Gushu of the **** software Dragoon Studio was quite surprised when he saw this demo version.
He tried several games. According to Shen Gushu, the completion of this Exterminating Dragon is quite high, whether it is interaction with the environment, interaction with the player, the entire battle process, even if it is regarded as the final boss of the game. Not at all abrupt.
How many bosses of the same level as the Endless Dragon in the Hatsune game?
Shen Gushu feels that eight bosses of this difficulty are the limit. Unless most of them have the same skeleton and only the skin-changing monsters with different appearances, eight monsters with rich elements have been designed. The design team will take at least two to three years.
For example, Shen Gushu’s own game “Astral Witch”, this game has six big bosses with different mechanics, ten middle bosses that have a certain connection with the mobs, plus many mobs and decryption levels, which is already costly. They have spent more than three years of development time, and part of it is to change skin monsters Astral Witch” will be released in May this year. After Shen Gushu saw the release date of “Monster Hunter”, it was always Half a sigh of relief, at least for more than a month, “Astral Witch” did not have to be compared with “Monster Hunter”.
For pure stand-alone games such as “Astral Witch”, the first month of the game’s release was the highest-selling game, and even the first week of the first release may have sales of more than 70% of this month’s sales. After that, unless it is Discounts or game content have caused any hot spots on the Internet, otherwise the growth of sales will generally be extremely slow.
“It’s bad luck for the Soren group.”
Shen Gushu laughed, and the action game “Storm Swordsman” from the second development department of Suo Ren Interactive Entertainment was released in August. If the quality is not good enough, it is likely to be hammered by “Monster Hunter”.
Due to the addition of the online function, if the content of “Monster Hunter” has the level of “Breath of the Wild”, no, even if it is only 70% of the level, it is enough to firmly occupy the players’ game time in half a year. It can be said that the Hatsune Game Selection To be released in June means to leave the first half a year to other manufacturers, and for the remaining half a year, I want it all.
Thinking of this, Shen Gushu, who was still laughing at his competitors, suddenly felt helpless.
He has already assumed that “Monster Hunter” will sweep the game circle and defeat their work.
