I Have A Question


#1

My question is: If for some reason all of your settlers in-game die, what will happen.

Will there be a Game-Over screen, or will the game spawn another settler?


#3

I’d say that’s fairly simple. You lose, it’s like that zombie plague they’ve mentioned in that if everyone dies then you lose. I don’t think that a new game plus feature as it were has been mentioned though so it’s likely that you just lose.


#4

I think that yes you will just lose but I think that a lot of people will find a way to salvage at least a few villagers and start fresh in the same world.


#5

I think i remember someone saying it had been conformed there wasn’t gonna be a game-over.
I do hope this is not the case though, the more risky /hard something is the more rewarding it is. especially in sandbox games like stonehearth.

@Nico This is a misinformation to my understanding. There will be a “game over”. Based on some information from the live-stream you really need to mess it up and disregard all the warning signs Stonehearth will give you… but you should be able to lose the game.

@voxel_pirate has the right of it… if there werent an end game scenario, how would one determine when the game was… over? :smile:

digging through @Geoffers747 Q&A thread reveals a few tangentially related comments to that effect, but nothing specific i can find yet… although, i am almost positive its the case…

Will there be a goal or primarily objective to reach in the game or
will it be pure sandbox? - Livestream - 1:50:13

“A big priority for us is to give you motivation … it won’t be as
clear as there’s a primary objective so it is definitely a sandbox
game, but we want a clear motivation from the start such as why you’re
here and how to progress.”

It would be pretty stupid if you die and you have to start over from a new world.


#9

Why? This is for sure a question of personal preferences, but people could experience it as more challenging if there is a threat of losing, no?


#10

Doesn’t have to be a new world. You could have the option to either stay in that world or start in a new one.


#11

@voxel_pirate

Maybe I worded it bad, but what I mean is that many people, like me, hate it when they have to start over when something goes wrong, like dying.


#12

ahh, i think perhaps you are referring to “roguelikes”, where death wipes out a game… yes?


#13

The good thing is that Radiant is aware of the different play-styles and they want to allow to play the game as you want. So there will be a mode where nothing bad can happen, so you cannot “die”. For players who like some challenges, there will be other options available.


#14

Well, now that my question is answered, can a mod please lock this thread?


#15

ask, and ye shall receive… :smile:
