The Flock Dutch game goes offline when players die




The Dutch multiplayer game The Flock will be removed from the sales over time. This is a deliberate choice of the developer, as the remaining players can then denouement of the story in-game experience. Then the game is played out and takes it offline.

Jeroen van Hasselt development studios do Vogelsap details about the course of the story of the game from the canvases . The idea behind the planned, complete closure of the game is that there is a limited and specified amount of life is not yet available for the players. Every time a player dies, a whole life and falls off the ‘population’. When lives are on the game from the sale, and will allow players who have already purchased the game, experience the denouement of the story in multiplayer.

In this way, the developers do not just want as much as possible withdraw from extinction concept of the story of the game, but also create something that “it is worth remembering,” Van Hasselt. “A multiplayer game can achieve immense heights, but then players lose their interest, and dies a multiplayer game almost always a quiet death. We want to correct that players wait for the end of this mutliplayergame in tension while they wonder what’s going to happen.”

In The Flock, players take on the role of members of The Flock, creatures that are reminiscent of the Hunters from Left 4 Dead. The creatures look for in a level to the Light Artifact. When a player wins this artifact, he turns into a human-like creature. It is then important for the rest of The Flock to that player hunting, murder him and to steal the artifact. Conversely, the humanoid players can precisely with the beam of the artifact causing the members of The Flock damage, but only if the player they seem when The Flock is moving. When they stop, nothing happens. However, if the human player focuses on one member of The Flock, he is just totally open to attack from another. The last player left wins the game.

The Flock is made by a number of students from the School of the Arts in Utrecht, and in the third quarter of this year at Steam. How much the game will cost is not yet known. The population counter of the game will be seen in-game, on the Steam Store page and on the subreddit The Flock.
