For fun I did a poll on Twitter: https://twitter.com/WinterwolvesG/statu ... 4627612673
Of course I can put only 4 options there.
Anyways, I think the results on twitter matches better my popularity experience. Indeed, fantasy aside that's always going to be the #1, sci-fi is much lower than in this forums, and after doing several games (Bionic Heart, Planet Stronghold) with sci-fi setting I can say that, at least for me, sci-fi is the worst setting possible
I know, I'm surprised especially to see slice of life so popular but in the end, both Nicole and Roommates were pretty popular so I think that poll is much more accurate "overall" (so not just my fans).
This doesn't mean I'll NEVER make sci-fi games again but for sure, not "big" sci-fi games. That's certain. Also I think depends which sci-fi we're talking about. For example, is a series like Black Mirror sci-fi? I think yes. And I think is very different from, let's say, Battlestar Galactica or Mandalorian
