One of many first issues we did was to put in writing down an inventory of various animals to incorporate within the recreation,&#thirteen;
We additionally made an inventory of setting options we needed. From that we checked out places the place the 2 would make sense, and we got here to the Himalayas. We would have liked to seek out someplace that had a historical past of battle someplace that might be politically unstable the type of place that you’d go to that was on the sting of the map. Locations which might be known as failed states.&#thirteen;
