A journey of discovery…

Darwin Games Going Forward…

G’day guys,

As work on the website continues, I am interested to find out what sort of things you guys would like to see happen to Darwin Games.

The 'Games' button on the Darwin Games website

To help shape the next step of the journey, please first of all, let us know if you’d like to see us establish our own forums OR yahoo group.

In the comments below, please let us know what you’d like to see in future posts on this blog. It could be things like more background story, designer diaries, artwork, painted miniatures, previews of any of the Rise of the Occulites games, more videos? Please let me know as this will help shape what we post in the future.

    I would like to see more background on the world. It is really interesting. Also, just about all of what you listed would work to get your ideas out to the public and keep us informed. Great job so far Ben!

  2. The background story is going to be key in my mind. Just think of the years and books of fluff GW has put together to create the world (WH) and Universe (40K) and how this underpins all design and releases.

    Notable heros (good and bad) from history or current days
    Special locations in the world
    Rumours and stories (fiction)

    Artwork is great – from simple sketches through to finished pieces are always interesting – consider background / village views rather than single figures

    One thing that has always interested me is the none combatants and day to day living aspect of the world – always a driving force for raids and conquest.

    Hope this helps

    I second (third?) more background on the occulites.

    Given that these guys (at least for the minis game, “Dawn”) sound like they’re roughly stone age/neolithic, I imagine societies are pretty simple and boil down more or less to tribes or family groups. But it would be interesting to know about their superstitions or religion (if they have one), ecology and behavior, food, what differentiates the clans (besides size and appearance). One thing that I always think of when it comes to prehistoric settings is also what other creatures they share their world with. Since they’re still kind of primitive, they probably have to interact with other animals at times, maybe to defend themselves or their food, or maybe as a means of competition for local resources.

    Andrews ideas are all good ones, too. Tied to the idea of special locations, it would be cool to have a map of where the occulites live. Doesn’t need to be an entire world map, of course, but maybe just the island or continent they inhabit, or whatever their territorial boundaries are.

    Those are generally speaking the kinds of things that I’d be interested in reading more about.

      I have a plethora of background and ‘scientific analysis’ of the setting’s creatures, tribal cultures and environments (including a map of the world that is contained within Darwin’s Pa’s property).

      I don’t think I’m giving much away by saying – just imagine what might be found outside of that property when Darwin is old enough to drive himself around!

      There is a lot to come and I can’t wait to share it!
