- Last Train Home — a game about the Czechoslovak Legion — will be released on November 28, 2023.
- Ashborne Games has focused on the part of Czechoslovak history that has never been explored before.
- We Interviewed Petr Kolář, the Managing Director at Ashborne, to get insight into Last Train Home.
One of the most challenging tasks for video games is to portray historical events in a way that doesn’t undermine history yet still manages to deliver a strong narrative. Ashborne Games has conceptualized the idea of a game depicting the brave Czechoslovak Legion, which, as you would expect, has not been explored in another game before.
For the uninitiated, Ashborne Games is a recent addition to the THQ Nordic family, which is popular for dozens of noteworthy titles. As such, the expectations for this game are at an all-time high, especially for RTS lovers. eXputer had the opportunity to interview the Managing Director, Petr Kolář, in recent times over email to cast a lens on the challenges of depicting such a strong story along with behind-the-scenes information on the game’s development.
Read ahead for the full interview containing Petr’s invaluable insight on the Last Train Home.
Ashborne Games has ensured that this depiction of the historical occurrence doesn’t taint the legacy of the heroes from the Legion and still delivers the major events to players. Another interesting thing that Petr talked about was how the studio considered the RPG and RTS genres for this game. Since RPG often becomes a big-scale project, the studio chose RTS as a stepping stone.
Imagining a role-playing game revolving around these events does seem very appealing, but we mustn’t underestimate the potential of real-time strategies. And while it will only be available on PC at first, the game’s success can lead to console releases. So, if you want to support the studio, you can dive into the demo and determine whether this is a game for you.
