the phrase draconia derives from the Latin dracones, which translates as “beast.” That is, a beast would be an animal that is large, wild, or dangerous.
As more and more animals are put on reserve in order to be hunted for sport, it seems that we have a beast in our lives that is both wild and dangerous. We, as humans, can only imagine ourselves in a different position, or so we think, but we don’t know the truth.
The truth is we are not like other animals, we are not wild nor dangerous. We are, in fact, the closest to animals that we’ve been given a human body to inhabit. But while we can understand a great deal about animal life, we can’t understand what it’s like for a human being.
What we can understand is that animals have a much easier time understanding the concept of death than we have. With a lack of comprehension, many of them seem to be happy. We are not. We are not, in fact, as much of a threat to other animals as we are to ourselves.
Death in Deathloop is essentially a game. If you want to play it, you need to kill eight Visionaries, with death as your ultimate goal. That’s a lot of killing. However, you can’t kill them all in one sitting. Instead you have to find and kill eight other Visionaries as quickly as possible. Each of them has a different number of targets to assassinate, plus there is a boss in the end. It’s actually a lot of fun.
The dragon has a rather strong personality and is an actual threat in Deathloop. You are not just killing dragons, you are killing other creatures. If you have the Dragon Slayer trait, it will allow you to kill two other creatures at once.
Deathloop is a lot of fun. Its also a lot of work. It takes a very large team of people to complete. If you want to see how it’s done, check out this video of the team working.
This is the sort of thing that makes me a bit sad for the studio. As a co-founder of the studio, I can’t say I’ve ever been a fan of any of the games it has made, but I do feel that they have done a great job of making a lot of interesting games in the genre. I would love to see them continue to make games in the genre, the kind of games that I grew up with.
I think that if you ask the question, “can you make a game that makes me cry?” the answer is yes. A game that makes you fall in love with the protagonist you created, or with the story you were told by the creator of the game. I am a huge fan of the Dragon Age series, and if you want to know why, check out this interview with Jason Fryer.
