Neverwinter Nights Sequel Q&A
8:26 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story
The Bioware community forums has posted a question and answer session with Ferret Baudoin, Obsidian Entertainment's Lead Designer on the RPG sequel Neverwinter Nights II. The sequel is currently in development for the Windows platform, with a tentative release date sometime in 2006.
The Q&A session covers many aspects of the game in development, from the ruleset to be used to publisher Bioware's involvement in the project.
Baudoin had this to say about the biggest challenge facing Obsidian:
Our current big challenge is that we are switching gears from pre-production to full production. The game plan is set, so we're deciding what systems go "online" at what point. Regardless of the production stage, however, the toolset is robust enough for us to make our levels and dialogues, and to set up our quests, although there may be multiple passes through some of the levels as new features are implemented and become available to us. There are a lot of industry veterans on our team and most projects go through this phase - we've got good plans in place to deal with it.Although no formal announcement has been made about the release of Neverwinter Nights II on the Macintosh platform, the developers have expressed interest in releasing the game on the Mac and Linux platforms.
Head over to Bioware's forums for more information about the sequel. Stay with IMG for any new information on the development of Neverwinter Nights II.
