Turn Frequency and Pricing
#12
Nice post, good history Kal. I knew most of the designers back then. Jim Landis was interviewed by Flagship and called Alamaze the best PBM and said he wanted to surpass it with Legends, which is a completely different kind of game as Kal said. Ed Schoonover did HW and Duelmasters. RSI as I may have mentioned before engaged me to do their AD&D license but it got bogged down in their programming shop. GSI had Earthwood and got rights to Middle Earth. They attempted to buy Alamaze and when that didn't happen they kind of reverse engineered it and there was MEPBM. I think their main designer was Ed Greenwood (something like that). By this time Alamaze was with Phil in NC. BTW, Jim Paisley who was with GSI back in the Earthwood days is the fellow who did the Alamaze map. While Legends could get as high as $20+ per turn, notoriously expensive games came from Schubel & Son, where everything you did (seemingly) cost $3.50: move, attack, build, investigate - $3.50 each. Flying Buffalo, met Rick Loomis and his programmer at Origins. They have very simple games and built their rep on running everything on time, not so much on the quality of games. All these games were priced on a per turn fee.
