Thank you

Post by loveisourhope » September 7th, 2018, 5:27 am

I just want to say thank you to the developers for making a free, open source, highly customizable creative platform. I know maybe you guys can't see it, but it is truly a blessing in more ways than almost any other game available. Just because it isn't extremely popular doesn't mean its not awesome. I wish popular games would follow this model of free design, creativity, and user based evolution and development. Truly guys, thanks and ya'll did/are doing a great job. <3 Don't ever sell out!!!!!

I agree with the above sentiments as well. I play this game more than the ones I have purchased. I think this game represents the idea of "open source" beautifully. I also like the fact that this is the world's game with people all over the world coming together without pay to create something wonderful.

> I play this game more than the ones I have purchased

I think this is only one part of the larger issue (payment/monetization).

The other part is that ... if you look at the games that are available today, most of them are about
some 3D element - ego shooters, or even this game where you are mostly exploring the oceans
and crafting things. It's a lot about 3D.

Oldschool game variants such as turn based strategy games, won't be created by the big companies;
perhaps some Indie studies but mostly it's not in the interest of the big companies, since they want
to reap in a lot of money for their investment. So in some ways wesnoth keeps an old genre alive.

Perhaps the underlying engine may be used to re-create other old games; many of them were turn-based
or had a strong turn-based element. And if you look at many add-ons, they also incorporate new elements
or different elements, such as RPG-style elements, inventory systems and so forth. It would be nice to
see this be expanded - perhaps not for the main wesnoth game, but for building a platform of addons.

yeah, i love wesnoth for allowing me to recreate almost any other game here... and for some types of games wesnoth has some extra to offer.. they might play better in wesnoth luck/terrain world.
pity that it takes time :D but its possible!
