As we near the release date for the Starborne: Dissidence Update, I thought I’d put together a post detailing our workflow and design goals with the redesign of the politics panel. This is one of Starborne’s heaviest UIs with a storied history to say the least, and I’m really happy to share some insight into the anticipated upgrade.
We’ve all heard it before: “Game developers should innovate.” – and when something finally changes, Gamers don’t like it. What gives?
I don’t want to get lost in semantics – because this title is already pretentious enough as it is – but “innovation” has become a blanket term used by people who are unable to name their actual complaint, and you should never take it at face value.
