The Bazaar is an upcoming digital strategy game where players engage in an intergalactic market and in battles to conquer one another in a competitive arena. It’s the first game being developed by Tempo Storm, an expert esports team and home entertainment organization that has actually contended in a wide array of game competitions, especially Hearthstone, League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, to name a few, established and led by Andrey “reynad” Yanyuk. And when it was announced in 2018, it was a traditional digital deck-buildinggame Now, not such much. In fact, as development has actually continued, the decks are gone entirely.
Beginning today, and continuing every Friday from till The Bazaar formally launches in 2021, you can inspect out a new behind-the-scenes video to get an in- depth appearance at the development of thegame The first video, called “Why Decks are a Problem,” runs just under 15 minutes and is live now, and in it you get an in- depth appearance at what The Bazaar is all about, consisting of how the original idea of the game has evolved beyond a deck-builder and into something else entirely.
“The problem with our game a year ago was that it started complicated,” Yanyuk says in the video. “I thought that was a good thing out of the gate, but in reality, it does just make the game a little exhausting to play. So we wanted to fix this.” He brings in lead design Ben Shumaker for even more insight into the design procedure and how they changed The Bazaar into a new idea that’s a digital strategy game– especially, with no decks.
“I know that this may disappoint some of you,” Yanyuk says after breaking down the design procedure and decisions that led to getting rid of decks totally. “I know that a lot of you guys are really bought into the idea of us making a digital deck-building game. But we honestly believe that to make the best game we can make, we have to fix that mechanic. It’s archaic, it’s outdated, and the only reason to keep it is stubbornness and nostalgia for deck builders.”
Much like The Bazaar, Tempo Storm’s strategy for these videos is for them to evolve and show the growth of thegame The videos will also feature continuous development of the game, offering fans with an in- depth appearance at what they can anticipate from hands-on gameplay prior to the title formally releases.
