The Digimon Survive, which was first released in July 2018, was expected by fans for its outstanding producer, the game of the game, the serious atmosphere of the game, and the differentiated graphics. After the children who were participating in field learning, they went to Digimon because they were unknown. Unlike the existing Digimon series, which has evolved as the user desired, it is characterized by the adoption of a system that changes from the breakdown of evolution and the story in the game according to the player’s choice.
Digimon Survive, which will show another figure in the Digimon series, and why is this challenging game? In a written interview with the lower Kazu Masa producer, I was able to listen to a short story. Digimon Survive will be released on July 28th as a PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and PCs, and the PlayStation and Nintendo Switch version support Korean.
Q. The release period continued to be delayed. What is the reason.
The team in charge of the first two years was developed, but the progress was not good. As a result, the new team continued to develop, and most of the data could not be used. In the end, the development period, which was expected to be two years from the beginning, increased to four years.
Q. I chose a classic genre of text adventure and Tactics Battle. I wonder why the classic genre is mixed in the latest series.
It was decided in consideration of the fact that it is a game genre familiar to the main targets of Digimon games and a genre developed by small teams. Digimon Survive was a challenging title, so I was able to try this.
This work focuses on the text adventure, which is focused on stories rather than a nurturing game. In addition, there are eight major characters, so we adopted a strategic battle, a genre where several people can participate in the battle at the same time.
Q. What is the way to play the game of Digimon Survive?
In the text adventure part, the game is played by talking with the characters or investigating objects placed all over the background. Each chapter consists of two situations: ‘free behavior’, which develops ties with friends during the limited behavior, and ‘exploring behavior’, which is a scenario event. Strategic battles corresponding to the event occur about 2-4 times each chapter.
Q. Text adventure has a great share of the story. Please explain the story of Digimon Survive.
The story of Digimon Survive is different from the bright and positive Digimon series. Therefore, if you expect Digimon in a bright atmosphere, you can feel a little unfortunate. The characters of this work are not chosen as the main characters of the animation, but they are caught up in the end, and they are forced to make various choices in unwanted situations.
The story of the ‘Jewish’ of boys and monsters tested in such dangerous adventure is depicted in Digimon Survive. Boys and girls who came to study on-site learning suddenly caught up in the fog that occurred, and they arrived at this world where strange creatures and monsters appeared.
Suddenly, in a harsh situation thrown into danger, they are caught in fear and doubt. In the process, he raises ‘Jewish’ with monsters from another world and finds a way to survive. The player will join the game through the game.
Q. Unlike before, it is dark and heavy. Why did you make this challenging choice?
It is the same as Digimon’s royal road that children cannot return to this dangerous world where monsters run.
However, the harsh the situation, the closer the death is, and the human ego (Ego) is increasingly surfaced. The choice that falls in such a state reveals the player’s mind indirectly. We wanted to experience how the choice affects partner monsters through the game and feel immersive.
** Q. It was a story of abduction, so it would be a work for core fans. But rather, I think it might be an introductory series because it is a story that can be understood without seeing the abduction, that is, the main story.
Digimon Survive is drawn as the main character, ‘weakly’ people who would have only been supporting if they were other titles. Therefore, it may not be suitable for the introductory series. On the contrary, it can be seen as a work for those who sympathized with the perpetrators and victim characters of the sub-character-related events, not the main character, while encountering various Digimon series.
Q. I wonder how many endings in the story are prepared and how much it is play.
I think it’s about 25-40 hours per route. It depends on the text and difficulty, but it is expected to take 80 to 100 hours when clearing the entire root, including the digging elements.
Q. I wonder how many Digimon is available at the time of launch.
Digimon Survive is not a cultivation game, so it did not weigh the number of Digimon. The total number of monsters is 113.
Q. There are so many fans of Digimon in Korea. This is because I have been with Digimon as a child. Now they are adults and are waiting for Digimon Survive. I would like to give you the last greeting to Korean fans with Digimon for a long time.
As the series continued for a long time, many developments and stories appeared in Digimon. Among them, the game has the advantage of being able to play the worldview and story created by various ideas. The game is hoping for the game to bring Digimon’s new charm.
Digimon Survive is a particularly different work of Digimon games. I think it would be happy to have fun playing Korean fans who have been supporting Digimon games for a long time.
