We focused several levels towards the Villians so I jumped at the chance to make a Golden Queen level. She is voiced by CCH Pounder and I am a huge fan. On top of I deeply love the Egyptian video game art style.
The first thing I created was the secret under the pit of sand area, intended to surprise and shock players who thought they were failing.
Next, we needed new mechanics, so I recreated the floor tiles from the Mists of Pandaria vaults area.
Lastly I used a mechanic I had created for the expansion Midnight Museum (which wasn’t an expansion at the time) that was pretty heavily inspired by Dishonored. Stealth gameplay!
