Bunroku (the “new Gekokujo”): Updates and a Developer AMA!

Content of the article: "Bunroku (the “new Gekokujo”): Updates and a Developer AMA!"

Hey all, this is a message from the developers of Bunroku (formerly known as the Way of the Sword), a mod in the works for Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord. We know how excited you are just like us about the mod. For those of you who haven't heard of Bunroku yet, it's a mod set in 16th century Japan during the Sengoku Jidai and more or less the spiritual successor of the Warband mod Gekokujo. Anyways, read on for more…

What's been going on?

In recent weeks we've had a few reforms and expanded the team as well as our Discord server which has been tidied up. In the span of a few days we grew from 250 members to 800 members in the server, an impressive feat which would've been impossible without you lot. Similarly, the development team has grown from a mere 4 developers to 50 developers all working in different departments to bring you Bunroku.

Hiring developers!

With that out of the way, let's get down to business. We're looking for developers of all sorts and moderators for the Discord. The following departments are in need:

  • Public Relations and Moderation
  • Historical Research
  • Writers
  • Coding & Programming
  • 3D Art & Design
  • 2D Art & Design
  • Audio Engineering, Sound Design, Voice Actors and Musicians

If you've got the time and skills needed, join the server and follow the application process there (fill in form, send to Glue via DMs and wait). We also need moderators from different time-zones and are looking for those who speak non-English languages to help out with our community. In addition, it must be said that we're not looking for casual developers who want to chip in when they have time – we need developers who can contribute actively and reasonably.

However, if you don't have any skills to offer, then worry not! The biggest thing you can do for us is to get the word out. The community is absolutely vital to us and you can do your part by spreading the word to your friends and other platforms. Link included at the end.

AMA and links

Finally, we realise that many of you are bursting with questions and so we've opened up an AMA (Ask me Anything) thread here for anything you might want to ask. Before we get started, we are strongly encouraging you to join the Discord server. Here you can be a part of our community, talk to the developers and receive regular updates on the mod's progress.

We've also had many discussions in the team about the name and the setting of the mod. What's certain is that we will set the mod in the Sengoku Jidai. The name may also be changed one final time from Bunroku to another name. Keep tuned for updates on this.

In conjunction with this thread we're also releasing a new article on our Moddb page as a general update. This link will be included when it's out.

With that out of the way, just post your questions here, and a developer from the relevant department will see to it. Otherwise, until next time!
