Normally I don't do topics for our podcast episodes anymore on BGG, but I figured this is a bit different.

We had a pretty long interview with Paul and Todd from FFG about IA in general. You can find the recording here:

Lots of background info on how IA is made, design concepts and even the testing process! I think it's worth a listen. Have fun

Anything in this that reconfirms the companion app?

Thanks!

FFG confirmed it at Gencon? Why would you need more confirmation?

I assume it's because of all the scare-mongering after the deleted tweet.

Rest assured, the app is coming and it is mentioned in the interview.

Yes. We even tried to coax Paul and Todd into revealing if it's similar to the Road to Legends app, but they couldn't comment

thx a lot for posting this.

Don't be afraid to raise attention to worthwile interviews (even if its bordering advertisement).

I think the whole IA-app-anouncement problems are due to the high profile IP owned by Disney and everything that comes with such products.

Rest assured FFG has a very high interest in releasing an app for Imperial Assault (it trippled Descent sales), they have been working on it and they can't say anything in public about it unless Disney gave them green light to do so, else lawsuits would ensue.

~"We're working on it and it's super-fun" sounds promising. Sounds more like RtL than just a companion app. I sure hope so!

It was interesting to listen to the designers talk about balance and some of the other things they have to think about when adding new expansions to the game.

I think they mentioned that big boxes take about a year to make/ship from start to finish. I also believe they mentioned starting it in Oct (I watched this yesterday so my memory on it is hazy), so we might see Jabba's in Oct/Nov possibly.

They also claim it's their best one yet (I'm inclined to believe them, campaign/game elements usually get more refined over time).
