Fanstratics – Update #26 – Basilisk and NO sci-fi elements
Fanstratics Troop: Basilisk.
With an origin shrouded in a mysterious evolution of serpent scales and hen feathers, the Basilisk is the only non-Chimeran Troop able to turn Enemies into stone. Lithe and lethal, it is faster than the snake-like Medusa, but less focused when attempting to turn Enemy Troops into stone. Able to engage multiple targets, in specific occasions, the Basilisk’s smoldering stare is a quantity over quality Assault.
I put the Basilisk in front of Justin at least twice before, and each occasion, he nudged it aside as he just wasn’t ready to tackle it. This month, he was ready. We tried playing around with the eyes, but different iterations simply got in the way of his overall design. So, as is somewhat common, less was more, and I’m very happy with the final result. – Greg Fulton
Fanstratics Question: You mentioned that the game will not have science fiction like in HoMM3, referring to the large number of players who do not like it. There are very few such players in Russia and no one takes them seriously. Now the main complaint about Fanstratics among HotA players is that the game will not be techno-fantasy (mixing of sci-fi and fantasy). While the game is at an early stage of development, it may be worth making a vote about it among subscribers?
Firstly, while I want Fanstratics to be thought of as spiritual successor to HoMM3, I don’t want it to be viewed as a Might and Magic ‘rip off’. Incorporating a heavy-to-moderate science fiction element, into a fantasy universe, would certain open it up to this criticism. Secondly, I have already laid the creative foundation upon which the Fanstratics world is based. I am happy with what I’ve done, and look forward to its gradual reveal. While it is not science fiction… it is not stereotypical fantasy. Hopefully, you will like it, and enjoy it. 🙂
