❓Manuela Felisbela Oliveira is asking: How many hours/days do you spend to make an expedition event? How many workers are needed just to make an expedition?
🏰Hi, Pavel here! I’ll be happy to tell you about how we prepare expeditions for you.
It all starts approximately 6 months before the expedition is planned to be released. At this stage, our narrative designers come up with the concept of the new expedition and a basic plot, and game designers decide how the players will travel through the location and what objects they will interact with.
Next, our artists get to work and draw locations, objects and rewards – that is, all the beautiful things that you see in expeditions.
Then we – narrative and game designers – take over again and start shaping the expedition into what will eventually appear in the game. Game designers place obstacles, put together quest chains and make sure that the expedition will be fun to play. Narrative designers detail the plot of the adventure and write gripping dialogue.
At the final stage, our programmers add all this into the game, and game testers make sure that you don’t run into bugs and experience the expedition at its best, the way we planned it.
And after all these steps comes the most important stage, the one that it’s all about: our mayors start playing the expedition 🙂
As for the number of people involved, it might differ from one expedition to another, but I can safely say that at least 22 people work on each expedition that you play!
