Godsforge Development Interview with Kyla McT

Godsforge released May 1st. Today, we interview game developer/producer Kyla McT about how the game went from prototype to reality. Find out about sparkly dice, heartbreaking trays, and making iconography delightful below!
 
What caught your eye/made you decide this game was worth producing?
Kyla: I could tell how much work had gone into it. Often prototypes I play are kind of slapdash, and sometimes that can even be a good thing. But I could tell that Brendan had put years of work into this game: the mythology, the creations, the balance. We changed quite a bit over the development of the game, but the element costs of the spells and creations barely changed at all. It was already such a rich world and well-balanced card set when it got to me.

Was there anything on this game that you obsessed over?
Kyla: The iconography, for sure. I’m all about readability and usability, but this game has such a unique look that I wanted to make sure the icons went along with it. It’s not always easy to strike that balance. Here’s a snapshot from development showing some different looks I was playing with, for the element cost on my favorite card.

It’s important for the theme that you know these elements that you are crafting have names: fire, light, bloodstone, godstone. But ultimately, playability won the day and I took the name of the elements off the icons to make crafting them a little bit less complicated. Iconography (for numbers) in development.  

What’s something you put a lot of thought into that might not be obvious at first glance?
Kyla: Honestly I put a lot of thought into everything! I’m not sure what’s noticeable and what’s not. The name, maybe. Names seem so straightforward and obvious in hindsight but we discussed a lot of possibilities for this game. It was called Etherium Forge when I first played it. There are a handful of other games out there right now with “forge” in the title but I really felt like forging these creations was integral to this game in a way that I couldn’t find another word for.

Tell us about trays.
Kyla: Agh! Trays and dice. I learned a lot about plastic with this project. It was a little heartbreaking to see Tom Vasel’s Godsforge unboxing and he’s got a broken tray. I haven’t heard a single other report of a broken tray, so that might’ve just been bad, bad luck. But I’ve learned since then that you always want to specify PET plastic for your trays. I’m an organizer so I try to make thoughtful, useful trays.

What’s something you learned on this project that you’ll apply to future projects?
Kyla: To trust my instincts. I really appreciate - and am instantly drawn to - art that’s different, that doesn’t look like other games out there. I’ve done that before on Atlas projects (Hounded is a good example - I fought to keep the game designer’s original geometric art on that game) but I really took that to the next level with Godsforge and Diego. His work is so original, so striking, so modern, I fell in love with it immediately. It felt like a risk at the time - what if my tastes are too “out there”? I’m so glad the feedback to it has been as positive as my initial opinions.




Can you share a surprise/challenge/setback? How did you overcome it?
Kyla: I wanted sparkly metallic dice! None of my manufacturers would do them. Looking back, I think it might have been a gaudy choice. I’m really pleased with how the marbleized dice came out.

Favorite card, component, or piece of art?
Kyla: My favorite piece of art is hands down the Shadow Gorgon [pictured above]. She was one of the first pieces of art completed and I fell in love with her right away. When I’m playing though, I’ll always try to get Scepter of Fortune out first if I can. 

Godsforge was designed by Brendan Stern, produced by Kyla McT, and published by Atlas Games, with art by Diego L. Rodriguez. You can learn more about it here!

  61. We have seen students seeking help from a Matlab assignment expert to complete the assigned task. But, isn't it supposed to be done by them, then why do they seek help? There are plenty of reasons that force students to trust others rather than themselves. The first reason that influences students to ask for help is the lack of knowledge in the subject. Every student can't be talented in all subjects, and hence, to get the work done in the right way, they choose Matlab assignment writing help,. Another reason for which students pass on their tasks to experts is to get better scores.
