Just make sure there’s a closely cropped yelling soldier as the icon

i'm a Finnish sudent of game development and went to a IGDA lecture where SuperCell told that they don't inow why but it seems your game sells better of you have a screeming dude on the thumbnail

differentiation is a risk, better to just do the same thing. also ideas are hard

I wish there were more 2D base building games that also had boss fights. if that wasn't clear from the two game-specific threads I talk to myself in more than the others.

also I kinda think the gambit system in FF12 was the best rpg party combat mechanic ever and that should be in all of them. which reminds me to go get xenoblade chronicles 2 like ciderpress said.

xenoblade is nothing like any FF game even 12 tbh

I thought you said the combat was a little like the gambit system? I'm easily confused. Anyhow I was not aware that mine is apparently a popular opinion: https://csgmagazine.com/2017/05/27/final-fantasy-xii-the-zodiac-ages-gambit-system-is-the-greatest/

i definitely wouldn't have been the one who made that comparison

xenoblade combat is like some weird mix of a MMO or MOBA and a combo brawler, where your character auto-attacks and you have abilities on cooldowns but eventually you're also trying to combo and animation cancel all your abilities into each other. it's pretty slow and rhythmic for a real-time system but still faster paced than a turn based system. it's hard to describe accurately since it's so unique relative to other JRPGs.

it also makes heavy use of QTEs, but in a good way? it's very weird
