Hot Seat game support

Post by Wildfire » Thu Jul 18, 2013 9:31 pm

When Pandora goes live, will there be an option on game setup for a hot-seat game? Multi-human players on the same game computer? Just realized I didn't see where I could add another human player on game setup.

I have to agree on this!
What's very good with turn-based strategy game is that they technically allow you to play with friends on one computer.
Not providing this feature would leave part of the fun out. It is not the same to play over a network, or all in front of the same computer, looking at your friend in the eyes while you're stabbing him when he's already attacked by the AI :twisted:

I guess you could do it by launching a server and multiple clients on one machine, but it would be quite a pain to achieve something that could be added to the base game.

I would love to add it, but I don't think we will have time for release. Hopefully after.

Nice. I also would like this, along with a scenario editor.

Even if it doesn't go with the release for deadline reasons, I would love to see it in a future update.
IMHO, it is the best way to double the fun of the game!

Bringing back this topic, as I’ve had some friends interested in Pandora now that a French translation has been added.
So, any news on this? Is hot seat multpilayer planned to be added at some point, or has the idea been dropped?

Them buy it, with the last patches (thanks for the german fan) it's an excellent game!
(before that, the last expansion had made it worst, for the devs didn't balance it enough).

I can't speak for the developers, but I would say: There is no need for hotseat mode, because one can already do hotseat by launching the game multiple times.
