    Ok, so it is save to say that if you are not super indie (Iron Tower) or studio saved by Kickstarter and than maybe also bought by Microsoft (Obsidian, Larian, inXile) you are out of the CRPG making game.

    Multiple projects seems odd for a group with 13-or-so employees but I suppose you have to have multiple irons in the fire to not get wiped out. :M

    I think the way a remote work studio like Digimancy operates is you have a very small core team plus a bunch of freelancey associates who might be doing part-time work for other studios. So you can afford to keep putting together and pitching prototypes until something works out.

    More than two years passed and they barely have anything to show for it, such a shame. I doubt they've done much work on those other projects but I hope they have something tangible soon.

    I don't know if this has been said already in this thread, but "digimancer" sounds like something your pleased girlfriend might call you :)

    Our game was indeed canceled by the publisher, and we had to let about half our team go. (Ugh.) Digimancy is still alive, though, and we’re talking to other potential partners… and continuing to work on our internal game. (My co-owner and I created a rough prototype back in 2019-2020 before we signed the publisher project.)

    I wish you and your studio the best of luck. I hope things work out for you guys.

    Will you be show off your cancelled game to new publisher, or will you be pitching a new project.

    Whatever it is, Godspeed.

    It's probably the mix of words "digital" and "necromancer" which probably stands for "digital mage" in a way.

    The suffix mancer comes from the greek μάντης which basically means diviner, and can be affixed to pretty much anything, from pyromancer and necromancer to oneiromancer and yes, digimancer.

    Good luck and I hope your studio and you can make something on par with the Mask of Betrayer.

    "Internal game" sounds very promising with respect to whether it will end up something I'd want to play. Hopefully we will hear more about it soon.

    Too bad Paradox pulled the plug. Is the game you keep making based & redpilled RPG with strategy elements? Or some Fruit-Ninja 2 for MetaVerse

    Kinda weird to be asking people what kind of worlds we'd like them to make when they haven't made a single one yet.

    > What kind of worlds and stories would YOU like to see us make?

    Full of soy, agenda, homo faggots and diverse cast. With a ton of balance and unnecessarily long, unedited texts. What else do you think we want in 2022? What are you some kind of biggots or racists over there at Digimancy?

    Ironically, this is exactly what they'll deliver anyway, no matter what you tell them.

    Must have hired a PR manager, that's all. It's all fake to create bydlo hype.

    I've never played a Ziets game (Mask of the Betrayer, Dungeon Siege III, Wasteland 3) that had "unnecessarily long, unedited texts" or political lectures. :M
