I also think that the "Goodbye and Good luck" comment and attitude is wrong...

This person has some very valuable comments and points he is sharing. If you are developing something of this nature like TD It is wise to listen to all comments.. Not just the ones that pat you on the back.

.

first off you should have read my other posts...it is in this thread..just look a little harder

For the record:



Thank you for posting the info Druegar. I am amazed and impressed the Dungeon was as good as it was considering the loss of family and and now friends. Cancelled instead of failed? That is to bad! Really! I checked it out. Wow! I wish I could buy It! Are they going to try again? I love mini castle stuff..

I've heard that a lot, especially since I was the DM in the spider/treasure chamber room on the puzzle side. I think it was intentional; the parties aren't expecting a combat, and that helps to entice them to the treasure table to be surprised by the spider behind.

My feelings exactly. I feel it has become too big, too much about the spectacle and tokens. I wish it would scale back and refocus on the adventure, story, and interesting interactions. They certainly try to keep those aspects going, and often their efforts strike true, but I feel these aspects aren't getting enough attention while other things (tokens and production values) are being overemphasized.

I suppose one could say that this is a matter of preference, but I think the majority of casual gamers would prefer a more consistent and solid story and relevant puzzles over spectacle. But I suppose even that might be a matter of opinion. :P

I want to keep the tokens and production value but would also like a better story and theme. Easier said than done, especially when I'm not the one doing it :)

Yes.. Exactly! Lets put it this way. Willy Wonka offers only one tour through the chocolate factory. True Dungeon offers you several.
