Thread: Asmodee Set to Resurrect Summoner Wars App

  1. #1

    Default Asmodee Set to Resurrect Summoner Wars App

    http://www.pockettactics.com/article...k-partnership/

    Based on this interview, which dropped today, includes info about Playdek's and Asmodee Digital's new roles. Playdek will be responsible for ongoing development including new extensions [read: factions] for the Summoner Wars App.

    I'm personally excited for the idea of the app being completed and playing with second summoners. What's your take? Will this be enough to satisfy the hardcore players who have been developing community fixes?

    Wow, that’s encouraging! I would certainly expect new development to bring in new plyers on both the digital and physical games. I would also hope that the original game designers and forum officients would respond in giving this place some attention. I realize they are working on other things, but the market here doesn’t have to be dried up, and the rest of us have paid to be part of this experience for crying out loud.

    While I have no inside knowledge of the economics of the app industry, I would guess that the costs of developing expansions for SW far outweigh the costs of publishing and marketing it. Given Playdek has often seemed to be short of cash, I still have concerns that this deal won’t speed things up as much as we would like. Still, it confirms that there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon...

    This would bring me back! I miss SW, but the App needed attention...

    It's an unexpected new.

    I dare not believe this.

    That was his join date, not post date

    For a while I watched their website to and checked their SW tab, but nothing has happened or been promoted since then that I’ve seen.

    According to the article, Asmodee is just the publisher. Playdek is still the developer. So while Asmodee can potentially put pressure on the developer, or offer them an advance to develop, it would ultimately fall on Playdek to generate the new content.
