Many people don’t know this but the original Elder Scrolls series was actually quite a different beast from what the most recent entries in the beloved franchise is now. In fact the original creator of the Elder Scrolls world isn’t even with the design team anymore, instead he has chosen to start up his very own company, Oncelost Games, and is focusing on creating a brand new game which will be more in line with the original vision of TES.
Julian LeFay (the so called ‘father of the elder scrolls’) has stated that the game they aim to create will be an open world RPG that will focus on creating a fantasy life simulator rather than just another dungeon crawler. Having worked on Arena and Daggerfall, the first 2 entries in the Elder Scrolls series, these games had great ambition but were severely held back by technical limitations at the time. Now with better technology available to them and a stellar reputation to push them forward I really believe they could create an amazing game that will live up to what the creators claim about it. I just hope that it ends up being what they say and not another dissapointment in the series. This game might even end up competing against the sixth entry in the Elder Scrolls series by the time it comes out, I am interested to see how that pans out.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
