More or less suggestions already back in 2017 but maybe no attention payed due to everything was still Bheta and development. BUT…
I really do miss the classic intro’s of both AoE and the AoE 2. With advances in cinematics it should not be hard to remake those intro’s and make them absolutly world class!.. I mean they can reseruct Governor Tarking and Princess Lea with CGI in Star Wars. Sure we can make a more epic intro then the current one…
It was actually one of my biggest dissapointments when booting AoE and AoE2 to see they didn’t reworked the intro…
I think it’d be cool, but something that I’d only watch once or twice, to be honest. Making a 3 minute video would, indeed, take a fair amount of time and resources. I’d prefer, for now, that time be spent on the game itself. Maybe someday in the future, after the game is more polished, stable, and has more cool embellishments and they don’t have much else to work on… then, yes… an remake could be nice to see.
This is similar to my old post about how I wish there was an AoE museum type of section in the game, to take a walk down memory lane. In my post, I mention the original boxes and the original manual being viewable in-game, but even more, whatever insights, interviews, or media they might have of the original production during early Ensemble Studios days would be quite cool to see in an “Museum” type of area of the AoE2:DE game. In this area, could be access to the original intro movie in its original form, and possibly your re-made version.
Lol, I don’t remember seeing 1m 42s part, where a treb crushes a couple poor military units
Here is remastered intro as a mod. I would prefer development budget to be spent on improving gameplay, not making movies. If they can get some extra budget for making movies by people, who would otherwise not work on the game, then fine.
Well, they may be a small company and certain positions could very likely be staffed by freelancers, especially positions in the art department. In that situation it could be possible to not hire as many art department staff as programmers etc. to focus on game-breaking issues.
The point I’m making really is that I don’t see why anyone would want an updated intro movie for a game that doesn’t even work properly. Like, why have this lovely nostalgic remastered intro movie for a game that disconnects you ever other game you try to play it???
Doesn’t make sense to me. If the game had non-game breaking bugs then yes fine, but I argue that the bugs are so severe no one would want to jazz up the intro anyway.
