As an ongoing project, real investigations from Point‘s YouTube channel will be fictionalized and added to the game as downloadable content, so there will be plenty of new material to play and the game will stay up to date with the news.
And as the story grows, it feeds back into the game. When one of those Planeswalkers, Gideon Jura, died in that new novel, Wizards of the Coast released a set of eight new cards commemorating his life and powers. The company called it a “Signature Spellbook”—classic Gideon-related cards with new art. You see how this works, right? The game can generate and absorb story. “A game mechanism is a kind of cosmology, whether you want to recognize it,” Kelman says. “We want to create a cosmology that honors the game mechanisms without literalizing them.”
Google re-emphasized that you’ll be able to use any games you purchase, even if Stadia is discontinued down the road. At the same time, Doronichev said Google is “super committed” to the platform. “We have hundreds of passionate people who have spent years building it. We’ve invested a ton in tech, infrastructure and content.”
