    Combat - Indie Corner

    Welcome to the first issue of Indie Corner, a column where we let the indie developers talk for themselves. The focus of our debut issue is combat and how to make a fun battle system.

    Great concept and addition to our line up. I love it.

    Ayup.

    I look forward to a new crop of thoughtful combat systems. It sounds like everyone interviewed is putting together challenges that I won't be able to play while I watch TV or read articles. This is a good thing.

    One of the things that drives me nuts about D&D fans. They like to complain my 33 rules doesn't have nearly as many spells, but come on! Everyone always settles on a small handfull of spells. PnP or video games, it always boils down the same way.

    I like what they did in Crimson Alliance, and I think Diablo 3 sort of does the same thing, where pieces of equipment include bonus levels to spells and abilities that can alter how the ability works (something I incorporated). Instead of having a vast array of spells you don't really use, you have one spell that can be altered in many ways, plus those ability levels are way more meaningful than +5 Strength and Stamina.
