Today’s TS Q&A info:
Participants: Lennart Sas, Arno van Wingerden, Tom Bird
Host: Daniel Goldberg
It is at midday their time, which is just under 3 hours away as of this post.May 20, 2018 at 07:30 #272436
Just under 4. As i post now, its 3.5 hours awayMay 20, 2018 at 07:40 #272440
Oh damn, your right, im only 1 hour away from their timezome, doh!
I shouldn’t be looking at these things at 7am lol.May 20, 2018 at 07:55 #272445
Happens, especially in the morning (:May 20, 2018 at 07:57 #272446
…Unless they’re running early again.May 20, 2018 at 08:05 #272448
Hopefully, they do not speak about karaoke or favourite books. I believe people are more interested in the new game rather than backstories. 🙂May 20, 2018 at 08:56 #272455
Iirc, the chat today at 12 is supposed to really be about the game. There some stories about game development in general with sikbok at 14:00.May 20, 2018 at 09:08 #272457
Honestly, I get the impression they’re taking questions from the floor this time, so there’s probably only so much fluff they’ll get away with. 😛May 20, 2018 at 09:37 #272471
I´m really looking forword to this since it looks like a succsessful next evolution step in terms of game mechanics.
About the setting…not so much. I would´ve preferred continuation in the same genre, and continuation of the story. Still, if you are making it, it will be awsome.May 20, 2018 at 09:41 #272473
The sci-fi setting is obviously a choice, and although you can’t really see those people here on the forums (since these forums are primarily populated by people that like the fantasy setting of AoW3), we have met people at the Con coming up to the booth that were not into fantasy stuff at all but are very enthusiastic about sci-fi settings.May 20, 2018 at 10:00 #272476
Looks pretty but i have to admit the sci-fi setting is not really my cup of tea.
However i do believe Triumph did the right thing with a fresh setting, as much as i wanted to see Age of wonders IV i think the time for it isn’t right yet, this game gives the opportunity to try new stuff and see how they work out so that(hopefully) a future Age of wonders IV can truly improve upon AoW3.May 20, 2018 at 11:28 #272492
They needed a 3 hour Q&A for planetfall, me thinks 😛May 20, 2018 at 12:32 #272506
Dire Penguins almost confirmed.May 20, 2018 at 13:45 #272523

Glad to hear the game is ready to be shown. Funny the first thing I said when they were talking about a new game was “a sci-fi AOW” and here it is (but to be honest I expected a 4X space style game with planet exploration). The Sci-fi/fantasy genre worked for the Warhammer universe, so why not for AOW! I can’t hide I am disappointed because I was waiting for a real AOW game (without Dark Elves AOWIII never really did it for me) – Still if Triumph makes it it’s going to be fun and very polished.May 20, 2018 at 15:07 #272577
Can anyone on the floor get confirmation if the Quartzites are a dwelling species or a monster den independent creature?May 20, 2018 at 15:10 #272578
It’s not confirmation per se, but I’m pretty sure they were described as nonsapient, so I doubt they’re a dwelling.May 20, 2018 at 15:17 #272579
Yea i went back and rewatched and saw the same thing which has me wondering now.May 20, 2018 at 17:56 #272596
It seems things are slowing down after an eventful weekend (it was eventful even for some of of the peeps who stayed at home, I think… did you even sleep last night iHK?) and since I don’t know where else to post it, here are my final weekend remarks:
- A big thank you to the forum peeps who kept posting like crazy here: BBB, Gloweye, Bob5… you brought us not only information but also some of the excitement you must have felt there in Sweden;
- A big thank you also to all the Triumph peeps. I really thought we were getting AOW4 and was hoping for that, but it’s clear that Planetfall is a lot like AOW3 gameplay/mechanics-wise and it’s good to see so many familiar faces working on this game. The little I have seen this weekend gave me a very, very good feeling about Planetfall.
- What’s going to be the best place to discuss Planetfall from now on? The AOW3 forums where somewhat hijacked for Planetfall this weekend, but Planetfall will get its own forums pretty soon I’m guessing. I also saw something about a paradox-forum-thingies-award on aow-planetfall.com, so we’re going there I assume?
- Speaking about aow-planetfall.com, how do I get the wallpaper and especially the 2 songs by MICHIEL VAN DEN BOS!(!(!))?
- I’m not looking foward to leaving these forums for some other place (it’s pretty sane here, I think 😉 ). Is there any other place where the old timers gather?
- @ Triumph peeps: the Q&A session today was a bit short, could you perhaps take a look at some of the questions posted at http://aow.triumph.net/forums/topic/aow-planetfall-collected-knowledge/page/2/ and answer whatever you like to answer (most are iHK’s, you can safely ignore all of those if you answer my question 😛 )?
Cheers all, it was fun!
And now we wait for *gulp* 8 months or maybe even *double gulp* over 1,5 years…
Edit: forgot to mention Tombles – he was especially cool again, I thought. I laughed 🙂May 20, 2018 at 20:46 #272607
And yes Dr_K, Ray is also involved in this project : D>
Are you guys going to be doing Dev Journals again for this game, or is that yet to be determined?May 20, 2018 at 21:01 #272608
A developer *may* have mentioned dev diaries…May 20, 2018 at 21:21 #272612

What’s the alternative though? Staying silent until release?May 20, 2018 at 23:47 #272622
What’s the alternative though? Staying silent until release?
Maybe. “Builds suspense” that way. Could have also just ended up doing various press releases.

Many thanks to you guys for the live reporting from the con.May 20, 2018 at 23:57 #272623
On the Steam page I saw Spanish being one of the languages that are going to be included. That would be a wise move, me thinks.
Is this correct? Can someone confirm?May 21, 2018 at 00:16 #272624
Afaik, nobody asked the devs about languagesMay 21, 2018 at 03:12 #272626
Afaik, nobody asked the devs about languages
I asked Sikbok when he was talking to a pdx lady about it. I don’t know if you remember seeing her Gloweye, was a blond girl wearing a dress, socks and sandals…anyway turns out she is the odd contact for localisation.
Anyway I asked about Chinese and Spanish. She seemed very positive they’d both be in. I made sure to tell her that there was/is a vocal group demanding Spanish on the steam forums.
Obviously this isn’t a binding thing. It was a 5 minute conversation I had on Sunday morning so sorry for lack of details.

I’d prefer that fans make localizations. I’ve almost never played AoW3 in Russian, because weird localization and ugly fonts.May 21, 2018 at 09:23 #272652

A turn-based game related to Overlord 14 (7% )
Entirely new game 37 (19% )
Fantasy 48 (25% )
Science fiction universe (e.g. space) 25 (13% )
Other 2 (1% )May 21, 2018 at 10:17 #272660

I just hope the way localizations were made during the endphase of AoW3/its expansions is going to be handled in a similiar fashion, that is, any user being “easily” able to add localizationMay 21, 2018 at 10:45 #272665
Damn, I have a problem… I was planning to go into cryo until game release, but my fridge is too small. Anyone has a spare giant fridge I could borrow for up to a year and a half? Thx.
