 I never played an RPG game before, so will this game have an ending? Am I confusing this with online RPG games?

Yeah, definitely not going to be an MMO, as far as we know.  I don't think RTG has the resources to even begin a project of that size and scale, much less actually continue to run one once it's up.

So yeah, the game will have a distinct story and an end, just like any traditional RPG game.

Yes, you likely do. :)

It's described as a game for "one or more players". In what way those other players come in, via online/LAN/split screen/same screen and shared keyboard/sitting on the same sofa reading the walkthrough, that's completely unknown right now.

 

I never played an RPG game before, so will this game have an ending?


Wait, does that mean you never played a single player RPG as well? :blink:

Of course it has a proper narrative ending! Probably more so than Dreamfall. :P

Hopefully we'll get some much needed news on the game in the coming months. Absolutely cannot wait to see what the team does next.

I'd be satisfied with a proper title for the game, for starters! :P

But that's likely not RTG's focus right now. Add DFC extras, kickstarter rewards and stretchgoals, then finish Draugen ASAP.

I looked it up. There actually IS some kind of Doomsday Vault on Svalbard. I thought that was just for the RPG. :blink:

Haha! I was sure you knew :) Yep, (for anyone else who haven't looked it up) it's a seed bank.

I really don't understand the logic of a seed bank if the world does become uninhabitable where are they gonna planet these seeds (Norwegian government logic)

It's a backup seed vault of food crops and other useful plants. It's not really for crisis on a global scale, it's so nations can have a safe place outside of harms way to store seeds and be able to rebuild in case of crisis where the seeds in their nation seed vaults gets destroyed. In fact Syria (I think) recently became the first nation to make a withdrawal.

We're getting close to the NFI grant revelation anniversary. Might be great to have a little more info about the game?

 

It's not like we're hearing much from the Final DFC Cut or Draugen or anything. :P

 

For now, it would be great to have a final name for the game... not just a working title... :)

Svalbard now has an official website where you can sign up for their mailing list and an official Twitter! The twitter apparently joined in September.

Wait, so the game's official title is just "Svalbard"...? :blink:

 

Huh. Short and sweet it is. But so great to see them finally boosting at least the teensiest signal about the game. :D

 

Oooookay, can we talk about the twitter portrait art now...?

Found this very informative about Svalbard. Pick your own favorite subtitle. We are un-patient, and we are from the un-dreaming.

Again? Don't these guys want to see Draugen first before they

 

I mean, that's a quarter million USD, right? Hmmm. What have they seen what we haven't yet seen? :)

 

And do you have a source for that?
