In conceiving our “Warhammer 40,000” video game plan, we have long and hard thinking about which factions will become the center of the conflict. Our goal is for each faction to define the core mechanics of the game and make it stand out in a unique and interesting way.

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanic

We chose Adeptus Mechanicus, which allows us to be creative and super metal. These guys are crazy (pun intended). They will do everything in their power to discover new technologies, often sacrificing thousands of lives in order to obtain technologies that may be equivalent to today’s electric toothbrushes. They also enhanced the human body, making them look like a fusion of Dr. Octopus and Dr. Borg.

Then, we flipped the table into the villain’s mentality. Our goal is to choose a race that allows us to talk. We want to humanize the abilities of bad guys so that they are more real. Sorry, this excludes Tyrannosaurus Rex. We also considered Orks, but they are a bit bloodthirsty. It is really hard for us to sympathize with creatures that attack their own kind, because they they like it. We landed happily and happily in the powerful and ancient dynasties of the undead.

The Necrons and Adeptus Mechanicus factions have a lot in common. Both of them seek immortality. Necrons has done this, but at a huge price, Mechanicalus is still looking for it. The difference between the two is their core belief. “Machinist” will never completely replace all organic organs, even if they put their brains in a jar and enhance all other functions, they must retain some humanity.

Because of their similarities and ideological conflicts, they work very well together. From an artistic point of view, this is also great, because green and red are complementary colors. It is safe to say that the stars must be aligned here, and factions have been selected.

Create a tailored narrative and knowledge in one of the largest sci-fi universes in the world, and do it right.

We believe that when you are using IP as popular as Warhammer 40,000, although we are all passionate about the brand, we are not enough to write a story. So, with the great help of humble pie, I searched for a narrator who not only had to write the narrative, but also integrated with our team. Enter Ben Counter.

With Ben, we know that we will get quality. He is one of the biggest writers in the Black Library. Look at “Galaxy in Flames”, this is a novel. He also emphasized to us that he wanted to bring the gritty dark good times back into the narrative, and he did it! An additional benefit is that Ben is a big fan of video games. Therefore, at the moment he was talking about game design, he just paused.

For us, obtaining professional talent is great. Ben’s years of experience in writing and playing games and an in-depth understanding of the 40K field are much more than the four times the accumulation provided by the team.

Maintain a compelling narrative while creating themed game mechanics

One of the keys to Mechanicus’ success is the synergy between game mechanics and 40K knowledge. For example, we looked at Tech-Priests and thought: “Those guys can “stuff” supplements in it and make it a reality.” We know that Necrons has the ability to repair itself, so it can repair itself, and now it has become The core of the game flow.

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanic

There are a large number of such examples, from knowledge transfer to game mechanics. When we look back, they now look so obvious. We spent hours scrolling through the codecs to find a good way to create juicy mechanisms or logical links to justify our unique experience. My favorite fusion of knowledge and mechanics is the legendary Cognition Point system.

Cognitive points are created to motivate players to move on the map and engage in close combat. With other turn-based tactical titles, you have cover. This will make you safer and safer than ever. We are not standing fans, and in 40K, close combat is very important. Cognitive points enable players to move more frequently, launch their most powerful weapons and use game-changing abilities.

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanic

The technical pastor will record every experience and link the theme with the knowledge point mechanism. They can then share this information with other members of the team in real time, as if they were all connected to the same Wi-Fi router. These data enable them to grasp the knowledge to improve combat effectiveness.

Therefore, even if our main focus is always on skills, we always ensure that the skills are consistent with the knowledge. Through this link, the game can enjoy immersion, is the perfect combination of game design and IP, perfect match!
