Multiplayer and lan game

The game will be perfect if it will have the ability to play with friends (like icewind dale, neverwinter, original sin). Where you or your friend/s can take control of their heroes of their choice and walk throughout the story line. Please make the lan connect easy and comfy as multiplayer (if your friend is far away). 

This is the main mistake gamedevs make from game to game. Only one player and tons of uninteresting characters in party. I know that a lot of people don't like party at all (hello skyrim) and there is no necessary to have followers to get to the end of the story. Yes it can be more challenging but is very important to have this choice. 

The ability to play:

  • Fully one player without party.
  • Standard game.
  • Play up to 4 friends with their characters online or lan.

Hey there kortofertos!

You're not the only one who's been asking us about Co-op - and for good reasons. We perfectly understand people wanting to play with their friends, and we also think that it would be a great thing if we could do that. However, when making a game you also have to make rational decisions based on your team and your budget.

What I'm saying is, it's not like we're AGAINST multiplayer. We thought about it, discussed about it, and concluded that based on our current plans we simply can't risk it for our first game. Remember that we don't have the firepower that some other game studios may have^^

This is not to say it's impossible for future game, and good surprise can always happen.

@Tactical Myzzrym  Here's to hoping for a wildly successful kickstarter campaign that allows your team to add all the features you would like!

Definitively want MP in future. What helps a lot for single player is forms of hall of fame / statistics / recaps of how you did. Oh and if no MP perhaps hotseat would be possible (let players mark who owns what charachter and share playing etc then with steam game sharing or other mechanism you can plan together even if not in same place.)

I agree I see a lot of interesting beautiful games flop because of non-Co-Op Versions. Here's to a successful Kickstarter!

What is implied by the "Team Based" party? Is it some mechanic based around single-player then or is it just referencing that each character will have dialog options etc.

Definitely would love to see some kind of CO-OP in the future.

Couldn't multiplayer be a kickstarter stretch goal? If the devs can put a price tag on it?

If enough people want it and are willing to support the goal? Nothing to lose, right?

Except opportunity cost. In place of that goal they could have put in some other goal that would have been more popular. The problem with KS stretch goals is that each goal is not independent of all other goals because they all come as a sequence of goals where you need to fulfill the previous one before you can go on to the next one.

Solasta plays so good with Parsec I regularly go on Solasta adventures with my buddy in a different country. I host the game and he Parsecs to me. It plays like you are in the same room with a console and you're passing the controller for turns.

These guys inspired me to try it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwqMnEXR-MI

Yep! Playing with friends is really nice. Btw that's how I met my friends. We played together CSGO, haha. Good times. It would be really cool to be able to play for money. It is perfect to combine games with money. CSGO was my favorite game as a child, and now I make money from this game. I earn quite a lot every month. And everything is effortless, and much is based on luck. I just found some csgo referrals, and that's it. I get bonuses that go up to $ 1000. It would be great if more games had such opportunities.

I also love to play it with friends, it really becomes a completely different game in it alone. There would be more such games! Also you can check this non Gamstop casino UK for casino reviews

I've been playing with a buddy using Parsec. I host the game and we can both use the mouse and keyboard. We play 2 PCs each and take turns. It feels just like when (years ago) we shared a flat and passed many evening on the sofa passing a console controller between us in turn-based games :)

There is also a method discussed on Youtube where with a bit of moving files around you can get Steam to launch Solasta enabled for Steam Remote Play Together. This doesn't need any technology from the devs, they just need to enable it, but have decided not to.

I don't know if manipulating Steam  this way is officially tolerated or frowned on by Valve so I will not go into details. Parsec I can describe more, and there is a specific set of Youtube vids that have been posted for using it with Solasta.

Parsec has just been bought by Unity (I understand the intention is to support devs using Unity), so can we expect it to come to games made in Unity soon?

I hear really great things about Parsec (one of the most efficient among coop work [or gaming] software or remote sharing) and I believe the core features are free.
