Volition’s Evaluation of Agents of Mayhem Will Be “A Little Bit More Intense;” “We Are Certainly Capable of Doing Great Products That People Love”
Volition, the studio behind the Saints Row franchise, released a new IP based in the series’ universe, titled Agents of Mayhem.
As any studio would do after releasing a game, they all sit down together, discuss the positives and negatives reported from their fanbase and the studio builds upon the positives while trying to fix the negatives and implement more meaningful content into their game to please their fans. Volition’s Studio Development Director Jim Boone was recently interviewed by GamesIndustry, where he revealed that the studio plans on analysing Agents of Mayhem a little more “intense” than they normally do.
At least in the immediate term, as you might imagine, there is going to be a lot of analysis. We will be taking a look at Agents of Mayhem and working out the kind of things went well, and what we need to improve on. I don’t think it’s a secret to say that it didn’t meet what our expectations were. So our initial steps will be a lot of self-reflection of the types of things we want to improve upon. Because we are certainly capable of doing great products that people love, so it’s not a question of talent or whether we have it in us to do great things… we’ve been doing that for a long time.
Whenever we finish a game, we always conduct our big post-mortems about all the things that went really well, and what we can improve on. With Agents of Mayhem it is absolutely no different, but it might be a little bit more intense.
We shared our thoughts on the game when it came out, so make sure to check our impressions piece as well as our Before You Buy video to decided whether to get it or not.
