A bunch of screenshots and a shiny new trailer were released for the upcoming RPG, Natural Doctrine.
So far, Natural Doctrine (which is being developed by Kadokawa Games) is looking to contain some pretty standard, if a little old school, elements. These include turn based combat as well as the inclusion of magic both in and outside of battle. Where Natural Doctrine changes things up a little, though, is the theme. As you might be able to gather from the title, the theme of ND is natural selection.
This presents itself in a way we have seen before, a basic humans vs aliens scenario, with both of them fighting for supremacy. Still, that’s not to say that the idea of “natural selection” isn’t going to be used well and even if the humans vs aliens idea is a little tired, it does make a good backdrop for “survival of the fittest”.
This is a premise games have touched on before, such as Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, but I can’t think of one that has it as a central, overarching theme.
