Message From The Devs: "Of Bots and Men"
Hello boys and girls,
We've been collecting a lot of feedback from you in all corners of the internet. We thank you very much for supporting our game and helping to shape its future. Keep posting: we are listening!
One thing that has popped up in Beta and is popping up now again is the AI Bots.
Our stance on AI Bots has been the following:
** Dungeonland was designed as a multiplayer game. The AI Bots exist as practice/learning tools and to fill temporary gaps when a player is late or drops mid-game. **
You must keep in mind that we are a very small team. We can only work in so many things at any time, so any time we spend making the AI bots better means less time we are spending making the Multiplayer portion better. We are currently developing an updated roadmap of Dungeonland, to plan ahead and figure out which aspects of the game we will improve in future updates.
Since YOU are the costumers, we want to hear what YOU think. How important are the AI Bots to you right now?
Do you play with Bots most of the time? Do you use them to fill up empty slots often, or do you actually play Dungeonland as if it were a single-player game?
Would you be willing to wait on other improvements to DM Mode, or new Adventure areas, while we improve the behaviour of the AI Bots? If we were to improve them, what would you most like to see improved?
This is not intended as a poll, only a discussion. We want to hear what you have to say about it, but ultimately the responsibility of making a decision is ours.
