Jeff Vogel Discusses Avadon: The Black Fortress
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Sub Gamers has posted a new interview with Spiderweb Software's Jeff Vogel. The veteran independent developer talked about the recently released Avadon: The Black Fortress, indie game development, and the kinds of games he enjoys to play when he isn't creating new RPGs.

Since the game is class based rather than skill based - how did you ensure that the class’ power would be evenly distributed, and thus equally attractive for players to choose from? The skills of the classes Blademaster, Shadowwalker, Shaman, and Sorceress are so different from each other it would be hard to keep them balanced.

J.V: It is hard. It takes a lot of time. That is what testing is for. Lots and lots of testing and feedback. Fortunately, Avadon doesn’t have PvP, like World of Warcraft. The characters don’t fight each other, so they don’t have to have equal power. All I need is to make sure each character class is strong enough to survive the game. The power levels only need to be roughly equal, not exactly equal.
