When it comes to digital vs. dfx, this is a really great question. This question is based on the idea that digital is the latest, highest, and best thing we have ever known. Digital is the latest, greatest, and most brilliant thing available. But with the current state of technology, dfx are more accurate, less expensive, and more reliable than digital.
Sure, there are a few dfx developers (and some dfx enthusiasts) who still enjoy the old school game design tricks of digital. These are people who continue to use the more primitive game design methods of creating levels and designing characters. But for the most part, the dfx crowd seems to be moving on to the newer, more modern methods of design and development.
This new game design method is called “dynamic design.” It’s a form of game design that uses a “coding language” called “dynamic programming” (DPR). “DPR” is a programming language that uses the “dynamic” keyword to change variables and return different results from the same set of instructions.
Although the dfx community is focused more on the new game design method, the digital crowd is also interested in the old dynamic design method (see below). This is because the digital crowd uses dynamic programming in their games as well. The dfx crowd is interested in the old game design method because it allows them to have new rules for a game that they never thought existed.
We recently announced that dfx will make a new game, called FFXIV! It’s a new version of the game that we announced last year, and it’s based on the old game design method. You can read more about that here.
They’re also the first game to use the new design method for a real-life game. In FFXIV you would start with the base game and build out your empire in the style of the old game. DFX will allow you to use the old method in a new game you will write for a new crowd.
That sounds awesome. I can’t wait to see this new game.
FFXIV is due out in the Fall of this year, and so if you want to check it out, download the free game and you will get your very first taste of the new design method. It isn’t the best in terms of graphics, but it is a great way to get a feel for the new method.
Its a new game, so the design method (or lack thereof) will be changed. But it is one of the best examples of game design I’ve seen, and one I hope will be used in more games.
We’ll also get a quick rundown on FFXIV, just to remind everyone that it is a new game. The game is expected to release sometime in the Fall, so we shouldn’t have to wait too long to get our hands on it. The gameplay is very similar to the previous games, so it should still be fun. It is also worth pointing out that FF6, FFVII, and FFXVIII all used the same design method.
