Supreme Ruler 2020 Q&A and AnnouncementPosted May 27, 2008 by Ryan Lodata
In a press release issued today, Battlegoat Studios and Paradox Interactive have announced that their geo-political simulator, Supreme Ruler 2020, has gone gold. To celebrate the finished state of the game, we have posted a Q&A we had with the developers. You can find the full Q&A by clicking Read More.
1) What sort of options will players be given in the Sandbox mode?
We are including more than one Sandbox/Campaign map with the game. First off players will have the option of playing part of our “Shattered World” storyline map wherein many of the biggest countries in the world are facing internal troubles – whether it’s the division in the U.S. over annexing the oil fields of Canada or a persuasive Moscow mayor trying to lead Russia in a resurgence of Communism. We are also including another sandbox that reflects the countries of the world as they currently are. So to answer your question, players have the option to choose what sandbox you play in (with a minimum of 180 different regions in the campaign), then what region of that sandbox you choose to lead. These decisions will obviously influence how you play since playing as one of the G7 nations of the world is obviously a different experience than playing as a third world region. On top of that you can also choose from different victory conditions; military, diplomatic, score, and more.
Yes we do. In our previous game (Supreme Ruler 2010) modding was possible, but it was very involved. We’ve worked to make more of the game elements modifiable, and now most of the regional data in the game has been done in a Database. This includes factors influencing relationships between regions, the economic and diplomatic situations, and much more. After release it is our intention to release a map editor and the databases to allow players to customize these elements.
3) Other than using NASA Satellite imagery for the landscape, what have you done to improve the graphics in Supreme Ruler 2020?
Every element of graphics was overhauled and improved. Our satellite imagery for the map is now at a considerably increased resolution, using more than 1.5 GB of raw imagery data. We’ve redone virtually every icon and graphic, redone the fonts, new backgrounds for the popups, and anything else we could think of to make the game look better. In addition, all of the military units and all of the map facilities are now detailed 3D objects so that definitely helps improve the graphic look of the game. A lot of effort has been put in to make Supreme Ruler 2020 “Look better and Sound better”, which also includes soundtracks that are flavored by the region you’re playing as.
