The Defiance website has been updated with a pair of developer blogs. The first announces the Outgun contest that will ultimately see the winner's real life likeness appear in a upcoming episode of Defiance. The second details how player feedback is utilized in development of Defiance.
This is different from direction. We have goals for Defiance, we have direction, and we have an identity for what Defiance is. These evolve over time, are implemented and then we gather feedback. Feedback can both affect direction and goals before we implement anything, or it is feedback on something that already exists in Defiance.
Does that mean we act on everything that we get through feedback? No. We process it and take it into consideration but it doesn’t mean it’s in line with what’s best for the game. (See also previous point on direction and identity.)So why discuss this now? I felt it relevant since we’re revising our development plans this week!
Find out how to enter the contest at the link above before heading to the feedback blog post on the Defiance site.
