Greetings, Fellow Citizens of Iskendrun,
This is a quick announcement to let you know that the influence period for Chapter 1 will be wrapping up in just under two weeks, on September 10.
That gives you two more weekends to complete Chapter 1 in order to make your mark on Iskendrun’s Balance of Power and the city’s leaders!
Once the Chapter 1 influence period ends on September 10, the Balance of Power and other under-the-hood influences will be locked in and will no longer change (you can still play the game as much as you want!). This will let us begin parsing your decisions and writing Chapter 2!
As a reminder, this is how the system works:
A chapter is released, with a several-week period where player decisions influence the state of the game world via the Balance of Power and other under-the-hood methods
After the influence period is up, we lock in the Balance of Power and other decision vectors as they stand
We then use this information to write the next chapter
You can play up to the most recently released chapter after the influence period is over, including alternate branches of the story; it just won’t affect the next chapter’s story
We release the new chapter, and the cycle repeats!
If you have any questions, please let us know in the forums (this announcement is cross-posted on our Steam forums)! Now get out there and make your presence felt!
