Epic Manager - Create Your Own Adventuring Agency! reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Early Access Review Epic Manager Is about running a Hero Brokerage Agency. You enter Into contracts with promising Adventurers and send them on "epic" quests. Fulfilling the Quests brings you everything an Agency desires: Fame and Money! Not only do You want to have both, but you also need it in order to be able to continue playing at all, because other Agencies want to put you out of business. At regular Intervals, the two Agencies with the fewest Fame are priced out of the Market (i.e. they are leaving). After the first Year, the best Agency moves up to the next higher League. And that is exactly what your Main Goal is. Through the Exit from the Quests, you can expand your Agency and make your Hero Group more effective, attract Traders or recruit spies who sabotage other Agencies. The RPG Element is that you send your Hero group to the Destinations of the Quests. In doing so, they can only run a certain Number of Fields per Round and at each Intermediate field, Chance Encounters can take place. These usually have several Choices (unless it is a Fight), which is extended by the Presence of certain Adventurer Classes. As an Example, a Thief can say that the Box is probably harmless to open. This reduces the degree of Difficulty that needs to be rolled on the Part of this Action. As with classic Pen and Paper. You lve up your Heroes, buy or find Equip, learn new Skills and combine Classes. The Tycoon (Manager) Element can be found when Expanding the Agency and Negotiating with your own Heroes. This can only be contractually committed for a certain Period of time and it is necessary to renegotiate after the Expiry of the Contract Period. Since the Heroes have (hopefully) gained a lot of Experience by then, they also want a lot more coal. Here you can offer Poker, and less Money or longer Contract times with the Risk of the Hero rejecting. It may also be that the Hero is not open to any further Negotiations and goes. In addition, you expand your Relationships with the Questers to include Bonuses and better Quests. I find the Dedication of the Developers to adapt the Game to the Wishes of the Community. To the feedback button in the main menu, Missing in many other Early Access Games, they also have an extensive Survey in which you can express Wishes, Praise and Criticism. Some of the Points I raised there have been changed after a short Period of time. For me personally, the Tycoon Genre has been a bit too little developed so far, but Epic Manager is already a lot of Fun and thanks to the NPC Competition you can still lose to the End. A Multiplayer Modus alá Civilization would still be the Hammer and would justify a Price of €186. Epic Manager definitely brings some Variety to the Steam Library.
