Many gaming companies like to think they take their fans seriously.
In practice, many lock away what matters most-their actual game development.
At Skara-The Blade Remains we are involving fans by offering interactive development forums as well as the chance for some select fans to enter the game as actual characters.
As our CEO says: Our goal above anything else is to create the dream game that any gamer would love to play. We started with a clear concept of how it will function, as a free to play MOBA and we want to see the rest take shape through interaction with people by sharing ideas."
We have installed forums on our website, where we post information about various features of the game as it is developed. Any interested fans can login and ask questions or post comments. Developers read the comments and respond.
We have also followed through on an idea we brought to the E3 video games expo in L.A: a ‘be the main character of Skara' contest.
People who attended E3 had their picture taken, the photos were posted on Skara's Facebook page. The photo with the maximum number of likes won.
The results have recently been announced: Diana Espinosa, a presenter on video games for Freax TV (@DianaFreax) from Panama, won with the most likes.
The development team will use Diana's features to create one of the characters that thousands of gamers around the world will use to play the online and offline modes of the game.
Chances to literally enter the world of Skara aren't over. Other members of the fan community will have the chance to design the rest of the characters of the history mode in Skara through contests that will be launched through the social networks of the game as well as the official website.
So join us on our facebook and twitter page and be involved in the creation of Skara - The Blade Remains!!
