Espire 2 Hands-On: Sandbox Stealth Encourages Freedom & Creativity
Talking me through a demo on the Gamescom show floor, it’s clear what design philosophy the developers at Digital Lode have for Espire 2: give players as much freedom as possible.
Since the release of Espire 1 in 2019, the team at Digital Lode has grown significantly. This increase has clearly let the studio expand its scope for the game’s sequel, Espire 2, set to release in November for Quest 2. After playing around 15 minutes of the game, I get the impression that Digital Lode want to foster creative solutions and provide a toolkit that encourages experimentation.
