As you may already know part of our overall strategy is to build mobile games and use them to gain visibility, players, and try out new features. One way in which this strategy is going to help improve our browser games is through the cross-feeding of features that we think can work. To this end the ‘Quests’ system from ZM/GnG (and kind of Coliseum) will be making it’s way to the Starcrash world.
We know our web-based community though, and we know we need to take it one step beyond. So I have been coming up with clever ideas and making the system better as I attempt to bring it in line for these games. Now the quests have a bit more story and cohesion amongst them. Also they add interesting bonuses that players will appreciate getting on a daily basis.
We ran contests across the games which provided some good ideas and inspiration. I have pretty much finished drawing up the quests based on your ideas and want to give special thanks to the players whose ideas were used.
These players will also be awarded some points and Days as thanks:
- Star Pirates
Odo fitz Gilbert
- Spy Battle
- Gates of Camelot
Can’t wait to show you guys what I’ve been working on, but it will still be a few days yet.
