Lords of the Fallen - Interview @Power Up Gaming

by Couchpotato, 2014-11-12 02:06:36

Power Up Gaming asked a few questions of Jan Klose the Creative Director of Deck13.

Hayden Waugh: Where did the idea for Lords of the Fallen start?

Jan Klose: It was back in 2011, and it was a million ideas that slowly shaped into a single one, and that was to put all our focus on a single element, tactical combat, and to create everything else around that.

HW: Would it be a fair assessment in calling Lords of the Fallen a mix of Dark Souls and Warhammer?

JK: Well, we really try to do our own thing and not to just take what is already there. That said, we do love games like Warhammer and Dark Souls, but you will also find aspects of a lot of other games in Lords of the Fallen; some people mention Zelda and Darksiders.

So, I hope despite being a tactical duel-based action experience, people can judge it as a unique title.

HW: From the footage I've seen, Lords of the Fallen seems a very testosterone-driven game. Are there any female characters to balance this out?

JK: There's especially one female NPC accompanying the hero through the story, but you can't play the game as a female character – we would have loved to do that but it would have doubled our work in quite a lot of areas.

Still, we'd love to do that in the future, as other Deck13 games also featured female player characters.
