Savage 2 Q&A
6:51 AM | Anthony Wang | 1 comment

GameDaily chats with Marc DeForest of S2 Games on their upcoming FPS/RTS hybrid title, Savage 2, set to be released for PC and Linux platforms this summer. The interview delves into the reasons S2 Games decided only on online distribution of their yet to be released game, marketing, and the future of online distribution.

BIZ: Ignoring retail for Savage 2 seems like a risky proposition. How does selling the game via digital distribution only affect your sales goals?

MD: The advantage of our development methodologies gives S2 a more reasonable development budget to work with. By having less expense involved in making the game, our sales goals are very obtainable as it is. We feel we will lose a few percentage points of our sales by selling only online, however the advantages heavily outweigh any minor loss of sales we might see.

The first Savage was released for Mac courtesy of Virtual Programming. Please click on the links below to read the interview and to learn more information.
