Victory at Sea Pacific

victory-at-sea-pacific‘Evil Twin Artworks’, the award winning indie team behind PC RTS classic, ‘Victory At Sea’ discuss the difficulties in developing an open world sandbox for their upcoming RTS, Victory At Sea Pacific.

When we first started developing Victory At Sea Pacific we took the stance that it would be similar to the original, where you focused on one fleet,” said James Carroll, Director at Evil Twin Artworks. “However as the scale of the game increased it became obvious that the player would be better off taking control of the entire Pacific Theatre.

One of the hardest aspects of building an open world RTS covering the entire Pacific war was creating a sensible system that would allow the player to manage the whole thing. If we had any brains we would have made the top level turn based, with the individual battles played out in real time.

To prevent it from being overwhelming the player is introduced to the Bridge in stages, bringing a huge amount of control and customisability, as well as emphasising the cat and mouse aspects of running naval battles over such a vast area.

‘Evil Twin Artworks’, the award winning indie team behind PC RTS classic, ‘Victory At Sea’ discuss some of the mechanics behind the ports and shipyards in their upcoming RTS Victory At Sea Pacific.

The lifeblood of the upcoming Victory At Sea Pacific campaign are the 70 plus ports available to the player,” said James Carroll, Director at Evil Twin Artworks. “We’ve added more levels of strategy around them than in the original, we wanted them to be more than something that is there to be attacked. The features include searchlights that can track hostile aircraft at night, and airfields that give the player greater scouting and attack ranges.

Not only a safe haven in a storm, they are an important part of the offensive in Victory At Sea Pacific, making them vital for sending convoys to supply the frontline.

victory-at-sea-pacificETA discuss the 120 ships and planes available on launch in their upcoming Real Time Strategy

In planning Victory At Sea Pacific we knew we wanted sizeable fleets that players could build from,” said James Carroll, Director at Evil Twin Artworks. “The original Victory At Sea ended up with 80 ship classes, but due to the huge difference in scale we knew we needed to give the player greater options in Victory At Sea Pacific.

Evil Twin have so far created over 120 ship classes and plane types for launch and are already developing more.

This game has some unusual ships coming, including the Japanese I-400 submarine,” continued James. “It was the largest Submarine of WW2 and was capable of launching planes!
