Interview to Lukasz Jakowski

Recommended Posts

Here's the rtf version of it:AoC_Interview_Eisen.rtf

The game changed his life. He dropped out of college and created the Age of Civilizations II himself
 

It is possible that you have not heard about the turn-based strategy of Age of Civilizations, which appeared on mobiles. Łukasz Jakowski's game turned out to be a great success, which changed the life of the creator. He dropped everything and left for the Bieszczady Mountains created Age of Civilizations II.

 

As the creator himself writes, his game has a simple rule: easy to learn, hard to master. The player's task is to unite or subjugate the world with the help of army and diplomacy. The era after the era passes through the history of mankind, from the first Civilizations to a distant and unknown future. In Age of Civilizations II also has an extensive editor, where you can create entire scenarios and maps.

Returning to the original, AoC came out as a premium game and achieved tremendous success, because it was bought by over 100,000 players. This allowed Łukasz Jakowski to drastically change his life. Where did the idea for historical strategies come from? I asked.

"Even before I started to create games I was interested in history, which was and still is a great curiosity for me. My favorite game genre has always been strategies, so the choice for my own production was simple 🙂 "- says Łukasz Jakowski.


 

How big was the success of Age of Civilizations? The game only went on mobiles and in the premium version, which is payable. Pretty risky move, especially on Android.

"The first part of Age of Civilizations came only on Android and Windows Phone. It was an adventure for me, an additional project in my free time during my studies, which turned into something more. The reception of the first part by the players exceeded my expectations, I did not expect such results and I was not ready for it. The success was so great that I decided to stop my studies in the third year and focus on the development of the game and activities. "- says Jakowski.

 

How did the unexpected success of the one influence the decision to issue a continuation? On November 21, you debuted from AoCII on PC, and also on Android and iOS. And from what I know, you created the game ... yourself.

"Without the success of one, it certainly would not be Age of Civilizations II. The stability that the first version gave me has allowed me to work on the second part for almost three years. And yes, the entire AoCII project was created only by me. "- says Łukasz Jakowski.

Create a game and succeed yourself, sounds like a beautiful dream of many creators. If you want Łukasz Jakowski's dream to continue, you can buy Age of Civilizations II on Steam. Especially that the game costs only PLN 14.99.

      I have begun work on a probably 1000+ province map of the Roman world. Unlike the hoi4 map project, this one will not be abandoned. In fact, I might even restart the hoi4 map someday.
       
      Map I'm using:

      Checklist
      Map: 10-15%
      Growth rate, regions, etc.: 10%
      Scenarios: 1-2%
      Fleshed-out scenarios (events and other things that will require more than /map): 0%
      Total: 4-6%

      I want to inform you about the development of a new scenario. It will be like " another world."
      What will happen in this scenario? First, the action will take place before WW1. The United States and other countries will support the independence of not only Ethiopia and Liberia, but also other colonies. Africa will be free, Asia-partly South America, North America. Portugal would retain some of its colonies, but Angola and Mozambique would become independent States. Great Britain will lose a number of dominions, with the exception of the British Raj. And the colonies will get the status of dominions. France would lose its colonies and also give dominion status to countries: French North Africa, French Morocco, French Guiana. With Spain, the situation is the same. The Qing Empire will not lose cities: Hong Kong, Macao, Qingdao, etc. because of this, there will be no civil war.event "the fate of Hong Kong and Macao", a new vassal "Portuguese Raj" and an independent country "French Raj"
      Additionally* there Will be a new event "African revolt" (for France). There will be a civil war in Spain. There will also be a new event, "the beginning of WW1". Because of the Austro-Serbian relations, WW1 will start again
      Due to the fact that the scinario done in Addon+, there are some problems that I will solve in the near future.
      I hope you enjoy this scenario. Sorry about my English.
