Right. Not only that, but it helps spread the development out over
multiple releases. One thing i've learned from Mysteries of the
Ancients is it isn't possible to necessarily include every suggestion,
idea, or desired feature in the initial release. That is just way too
much work. However, there is an easy solution for that problem, and it
is to create expantion packs or release updates to the game at some
point after 1.0 is released. So I've had this idea in mind for a while
now, and your suggestion to release expantion packs just cemented the
idea for me.
Obviously, for some games having expantion packs, whatever, wouldn't
work as it might not work into the storyline or into the over all game
mechanics well. However, I know several accessible games where some
sort of expantion pack would work quite well. Raceway is one of them
as it wouldn't hurt to create additional tracks, an online racing
mode, and possibly the ability to add custom cars to the game at some
point in the future.
