How do you feel about MARDEK so far?

◊ Posted by A β Pseudolonewolf

I've been updating the Alora Fane blog a lot with my progress on the new version of MARDEK, but I'm curious about what the general feelings are about it so far. I've made a poll to get an idea: ∞ LINK ∞

I really, really hope that it can turn out well, but I've been on the receiving end of so much scathing criticism in response to changes and new ideas in the past that I can't help but feel very nervous about the same thing happening again...

I think it's a great idea to reboot it. The series is really old (in internet time), and I get the feeling that the style is not "you" anymore; you're a different person now and have different, new, exciting ideas.

Go for it!

Mardek should be light skinned black. It would make more sense story wise.

You'll do fine man. We'll support you with moneys and moral if you need it.
What would have happened if Van Gogh stopped painting because people kept criticizing him? He never stopped and he's forever a legend. That goes for everyone else who is passionate about what they WANT to do.

Didn't Van Gogh also go crazy and cut off his own ear?

Yes, but for the love of his life as a gift! Pseudo must cut off the old story to give a new story as a gift to us! It's the circle of life man

I'm fine with all the changes and would be happy to play this when it comes out.

What I dislike are the things that aren't being changed: I think it's a mistake to continue calling it MARDEK, and I have never liked pixelated graphics.

I'll admit that I'm skittish about most of the changes. I'm not a big fan of the Mardek redesign at first glance, and I'll miss the open world design.

That being said, you've done an incredible job with everything you've done so far, so I have no doubt that this'll be great as well. It might not be the Mardek sequel I was anticipating, but I'm sure it'll be great nevertheless.

Since I'm fond of metaphors, so far it feels like anticipating a big slice of chocolate cake and instead getting a lobster dinner. It's not what you were expecting or looking forward to, but if you can shift gears and enjoy it, the food is still going to be fantastic.

Unless you don't like lobster...

On the other hand, what if you didn't want chocolate cake? (strange, I know, but some people are weird that way)
