Raven Chat Transcript
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
3D Action Planet chatted with some of the developers at Raven Software yesterday afternoon to talk about their just-released for the PC Star Trek title, Voyager: Elite Force. A transcript of the entire affair has been posted, so you can read their answers to a number questions about the game. It is in the usual, slightly-crazed IRC-style chat style, but here's an excerpt to give you an idea of what to expect:
What made you decide to allow the player to play as either gender rather than just a guy? Given all the work is doubled with the cinematics, I thought that was a nice touch.The ability to play as either Alex or Alexandra Munro is just one of the many impressive features in the game. If you'd like to see the developers answer questions in their own words, head on over and read through the rest of the transcript.
Cosmos[RAVEN] Actually, we came up with a fairly simple, easy and automatic way to exchange the models, skins, sounds, text, etc
Winter[RAVEN] It adds to re-playability for one thing...and it also allows players to further identify with the main character...whether they are male or female.
Nexus[RAVEN] We also didn't want to disappoint our female fans
Terata[RAVEN] A few things are specifically different for the two characters, items in Munro's quarters and such, but mostly it was automatic.
