Restoration Games is going to Return to Dark Tower
"Daviau and Childres—along with Jacobson and Restoration’s Tinker-in-Chief, J.R. Honeycutt—have been working behind the scenes for months to develop the core game mechanics. The game strives to provide players with interesting choices about which quests to pursue, how to best use resources to keep the growing evil in check, and when to make that final decision to assault the tower. Jacobson revealed that, while the game is still early in development, one of the reasons for the announcement’s timing was to allow them to do significant playtesting without fear of the story leaking."The only detail we know that's been set in stone is that this new iteration of the game will be cooperative. Rob Daviau is quoted via press release in saying, "We always believed that, had it come out today, Dark Tower would have been a cooperative game. The real threat is that imposing tower. It will take all of the players working together to defeat it." This is a very cool development, and I agree, cooperative games like Legends of Andor have accomplished some of what Dark Tower originally set to achieve within a framework of one of the most classic fantasy tropes - an adventuring party. This shift is a good fit for Dark Tower, and with the team of rockstar game designers and developers at the helm there's a lot here to be ecstatic about.
