Last Regiment is an upcoming fantasy-themed strategy game with simultaneous turn-based multiplayer and single-player campaigns following the story of a Portellan named Olivia, set in a post-apocalyptic world with Dragoons, Artillery, Orcs, Pirates, Chainsaws, and more! Form regiments of heroes and units from various factions, lead them across hex-based maps, and fight your enemies for control over all the lands and structures.
Currently being developed by Boomzap Entertainment, Last Regiment takes the best parts of the studio's previous title, Legends of Callasia, makes a bunch of neat changes for a faster, deeper, and more strategic game, and allows player to design their own levels through its built-in map editor.
Someone on Discord asked us: How come we never see your other games and we only hear about Last Regiment and Legends of Callasia? The quick answer is: our other projects are with publishers, who own the rights to our games. This brings us to a discussion about how the game development industry works, including the developer-publisher relationship.
There are two (or three) ways to make games. One is first party publishing, wherein a publisher makes the game and figures out the whole process of getting the game out to the consumer. The other is third party publishing, wherein someone else develops the game, and the publisher runs it through their established processes, platforms, and pipelines. Either the developer (who may not have the resources) approaches a publisher to distribute their game, or a publisher goes to the developers and asks them to make a game.
There are three important parts of this deal: prepaid payments, backend royalties, and IP ownership. This final one pretty much explain why we haven’t continued making our successful hidden object franchises, and why we don’t promote our newer games as heavily as we do for Last Regiment.
Spreaking of the game, we are continuing to work on getting the game from “good” to “great”. Here are some of the code, data, and UI changes we’ve done in the past week.
