DeepTrouble 2 was a much bigger game than the others, especially regarding graphics. Lots of enemies and structures were modeled, fine-tuned and incorporated into the game. As with our other games, a custom editor and other tools had to be developed for creating the game levels.
DeepTrouble 2 was also the first game where we included some easter eggs. It’s always interesting to see if players will find that kind of stuff and as a player it’s fun to find easter eggs.
It can be interesting to compare the original DeepTrouble and DeepTrouble 2 to see how much the graphics features and level of detail increased within just a few years. It also took much longer to develop and it’s a trend that continues. As hardware gets faster and more advanced the technology in games becomes more and more complex and they take longer to develop.
