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.

      hello everyone, i'm new to this platform,  plus this map i was working on, took me about 6 days in total when it's come to map making, what inspire me is that some famous guy on the forum with xi as profile pic called age of history 2 as "risk ripoff", but without further a do, welcome to:
      RISK: age of history 2 edition

      +almost like aoh1, but way smaller.
      +no sea provinces yet, so it'll feel like old risk game.
      -some country placement may be wrong but it's not like risk was accurate to begin with.

      - six scenario as of right now (there'll be more to come, don't worry)
      0.2 update : + fixed the regional placement of the map.
      + added a new scenario: 1440.
      + a ton of formable nations, around 27.
      + created alot of city in different provinces.
      -  due to the lack of sea province in the map, there's only one province wastelanded in 1440.
      -  i accidently made H.R.E the number one in 1440.
      0.3 update: + fixed terrain placement slightly, and fix some continent placement *northern north America and Alaska ain't Asia*
      + 3 more scenarios added.
      + made a new civilization exclusive to one scenario (the requested one).
      - still no sea provinces as of now.
      note: the map was made with map editor 2 and edited with vanilla game.
      0.4 update: + brand new but probably stolen and modified a bit map: africa.
      + a new scenario for original risk map.
      - still no sea province for original risk map...
      0.4.1 update: + some minor fixes around connection between provinces.
      +  three new scenarios for risk Africa.
      + around 11 formable nations added.
      - still no update for original risk map (i'll get around for this sometime).
      download down below if you're interested:
      (for some dumb reason, the mod is undownloadable unless you're a member of this website forum, i'll look around this once the rar file getting heavy or something like that )

      Shop Soy: Der Kalte Krieg is an alternate-history scenario that I came up with. Althought some of the characters don't belong to me (I used characters from Nintendo don't judge me) the lore for this mod is 100% mine. The map is also inspired in the Thousand Week Reich and The New Order mods.
      This mod isn't supposed to be taken seriously since it's mostly made for fun and in the end I don't even own many of the characters, I might add an download link for anyone who wants to play it but I don't want to go any further from that (Legal reasons, I don't want Nintendo to sue me or something)
      I also accidentally used some UI from @Aryan when I tried to make the map darker, I could try to remove it but I'm scared to break the game so Aryan if you're reading this I'm just sorry, to compensate you from my mistake I would like to tell anyone who's reading this to check out @Aryan's Mods, they are simply amazing.
      If you have any question about the lore feel free to ask in the comments, I'll gladly answer 🙂 
       
      My plans for Der Kalte Krieg:
      >More then 100 events
      >Focus trees for: Germany, Soviet Union, Japan, America, Free France, Burgundy, Gotenland, French State, Mongolia, Dominion of Canada, Korea (both North and South), Sweden, Polish Home Army, India, British India, Italian Empire, Spanish State, Turkey, Greece, Serbia, Hungary, Romania.
      >5 new ideologies
      >New Formable Nations
      >Custom Background
      >More then 100 custom civilizations
