Kings and Castles Monthly DLC Plans

IGDA Perspectives Newsletter includes a "studio spotlight" on Gas Powered Games, where studio head Chris Taylor discusses his company. On the topic of Kings and Castles, he explains how they plan on taking DLC to "a whole new level," saying: "Kings and Castles is an opportunity to explore a new business model … first we release the core game, and then each month, we release new content, or monarchs. It's taking the whole downloadable content model to a whole new level, but we might also bring some aspects of microtransactions to it as well." Thanks Big Download.

It is as if he honestly believes people are excited by the notion of paying full retail for a game, followed by monthly costs and possibly microtransactions on top of that. I can honestly say I think he is truly out of touch with reality. Is he thinking to himself, "Why would people pay $50 or $60 when they can spend twice that or more?"

It's a lofty goal, but maybe he will be able to 1-up Hellgate London. Time will tell...
