Lords of Xulima
September 30, 2013 - Numantian Games
For those who would like to know some more in-depth information about Lords of Xulima, we would like to invite you to our blog where we have written our thoughts about some of the more fundamental elements that make up our favorite games. On the blog we explore the various ways these elements have been implemented in the past and how we have decided to approach them in the creation of Lords of Xulima.
Here are a few of the topics we have written about while developing our game:
Pre-Made vs. Custom Characters
This is a very interesting topic for us. When characters are premade it give the writers a chance to make them really well rounded and developed characters that can have interesting conversations with the other members of their party. However, this makes it much more restrictive for the player. On the other hand, if the player can create all of the party members, then that limits the amount of dialog and personality that can be written into the characters.
Death in party based RPGs
What happens when a member of the party dies? Can they be resurrected? At what point, if any, is it actually 'Game Over'?
Food and Resting in RPGs
How can the group be healed? Is it enough for them to be able to rest anywhere on the map? Do the party members need to eat as they are out adventuring?
This game mechanic requires a fine touch. When implemented well, it can create a suspenseful atmosphere in the game, a sense of danger that keeps things interesting. Implemented poorly, it can make the game tedious and frustrating.
Balancing in non-linear RPGs
This is a complex topic and one on which each development company has their own philosophy and approach. Here you can learn how we are managing balancing in Lords of Xulima.
Please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or comments.

Numantian Games is happy to announce that our crowdfunding campaign will launch on Monday, September 16th.
We hope you enjoy the six and a half minute video that we prepared for the campaign. The recording is in English and we are also including subtitles in English and Spanish so that we can reach as many people as possible.
Here are a few images from the video that we would like to share with you. Some of the creatures from Lords of Xulima are so egocentric that they couldn’t resist running through the studio and stealing a bit of camera time!

The development of Lords of Xulima has been progressing at a good pace. We’ve finished about 60% of the game’s content, many testers are already playing the demo version and there is currently nothing on the horizon that poses any danger to the game’s ultimate completion and release.
So… Why Crowdfunding?
Basically, there are three optional features that we’re not certain if we’re going to be able to include because of their costs: Original Soundtrack, more languages and more cool content.
Lords of Xulima is our first production and even though for us it’s the ideal role-playing game into which we’ve put all of our passion and thousands of hours of work, we really don’t know how it will do commercially.
For this reason we’ve decided to start a crowdfunding campaign to try to include these features that would improve the game and make Lords of Xulima a much more well-rounded production.
The campaign will launch in a few days. We will make a new update as soon as it is published.
