A post on the Chivalry 2 Website
celebrates the upcoming seventh anniversary of the release of Chivalry:
, Torn Banner Studios' multiplayer hack-and-slash game that
was first released
October 16, 2012. They say they'll have lots to share soon about Chivalry 2
and what's next for the franchise, but for now, they offer a postmortem of the
first game, including a look at what went wrong as well as what they got right.
Word is: "Despite these flaws and mistakes, we look back on Chivalry today with
a mixture of pride and determination to capture the potential we left on the
table, as we continue our work on Chivalry 2." Here's their overview:
its launch, Chivalry was well-received as a cult hit and its unique appeal
launched our indie dream into the best selling title on Steam throughout the
week of Christmas 2012. Sure, it was rough around the edges in everything it
did, but it captured a certain special combination that somehow let it become
greater than the sum of its parts.
