Porting a turned-based, tactical RPG - Solasta: Crown of the Magister from PC Steam to PC Microsoft Store.
Solasta: Crown of the Magister is a turn-based tactical RPG based on the SRD 5.1 Ruleset. In Solasta, a player takes control of four heroes, each with unique skills that complement one another. Every hero expresses themselves in the adventure, making each action and dialogue choice a dynamic part of the story.
The game was developed and published by Tactical Adventures. Its launch date is May 27, 2021.
Working on this project consisted of two parts: plugin development and porting. The first part took place in 2020 when we helped Tactical Adventures with plugin development: LipSync. Two of our Knights were involved in this task, and it took two weeks to complete it.
The second part was porting. The project's main goal was to make the PC version of Solasta compliant with Microsoft Store requirements by uploading a new GDK API from Microsoft, uploading the Mod.io plugin for user-generated content and passing Microsoft Store certification, which basically means porting the game from PC Steam to PC Microsoft Store.
Porting lasted approximately 2,5 months and engaged 2 developers and one QA specialist. The game is now available on Microsoft Store.
