Ability dependencies

Video game concept

Abilities, skills, research subjects, etc. have dependencies on other such before they can be made available (e.g. shield charge requires the character already can do shield bash).


Alternate names: Skill dependencies, Research dependencies

The first video game about Ability dependencies was released on March 15, 2001.

Kalypso Media Digital, 2K Games and LucasArts has published most of these games

Note that this is NOT for dependencies on earlier levels of the same thing, such as bash lvl 3 requiring you to take bash levels 1 and 2 first. Or purely logical dependencies, such as revolver speedloading requires basic firearms skill.
