RPG Planet recently had the chance to interview Anoop Shekar, the Assistant Producer
for the recently-"gold" RPG Summoner. Summoner, for those unfamiliar with it, is an RPG that centers
around a character named Joseph, who has the ability to summon various demons.
Though Summoner information already abounds, the interview does uncover some interesting details
regarding the concepts behind the game itself. When asked about the ideas and influences that brought
about Summoner, Shekar has this to offer:
There have been many influences for Summoner. Influences include books such as the Lord of the Rings and the Earthsea trilogy and Shekar also goes into detail about the combat system, noting that combat occurs in real-time, and that
game like the Final Fantasy series and Planescape: Torment. We also
used quite a bit of Chinese and Japanese mythology.
players can switch between characters at will to direct their actions. The Multiplayer aspect of the game itself
will allow up to 4 players to adventure together through three levels of difficulty.
