If you guys can’t enable full-modding into the game, consider creating simple tools for people to “inject” new events, items (with sprites/custom icons and customizable mechanics currently used in the game), professions and maybe even monsters with changable faction(so you could eg. introduce new types of Orcs/Goblins/Undead/Bandits/Neutral monsters).
Seriously, I’d pay 20$ for such toolset, and I’m pretty sure there are a lot of people who’d do the same.
From the economical perspective – Active modding community equals bigger sales.
Also, you seriously should consider small DLC’s to keep a good reputation with fans of your game. I don’t think it would take a lot of work to release something per quarter and I’m 100% positive that this money would help you out with your next project.
C’mon Overhype. Your first baby is so great, why u do dis? ;_;
I keep my fingers crossed as well. A lot of people on other boards are talking about this too. BB was a dream come true to a lot of us, and we feel that this game has a lot more to offer.
