I have just completed a very enjoyable 45 minute interview with a writer who has been asked to do a feature for PC Gamer UK. Unlike the recent articles that have talked a bit about Genesis, this is meant to be a 2,000 word feature which goes in-depth about the game, features screenshots, and much more deeply explores the Genesis gaming experience. The author hopes to discuss both what makes the game so special and worth playing to those who find it, and also what the wizards have done over the last decade to try to continue to improve and support the design of the game, and keep things fresh and compelling.
One of the things a PC Gamer article (this will be featured in the print-version) needs is good screenshots. With our game, that is a bit of a head scratcher! He, of course, wanted as many good-quality things that I could send him that Denis Loubet has done for us. That is the easy part. The more challenging part is to find some useful screenshots of our game in action.
So! I would like to reach out to you, our community, to see what we can come up with. This thread is meant to be a place you can do your part to help with this. Please - using the games official client (sorry, we will not want to feature your own highly-modded mudlet interfaces for this) see what you can do to come up with the very best screenshot of the game. What I think that might include:
- What you think is the best magic map image in the game in the map window
- A good example of interesting gameplay or human roleplay in the text window
- Not a bunch of spam or client trigger type messaging
- A nice clear, clean image with good image quality
