Bioware Celebrates 4 Million Registered Members
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

BioWare, developer of the Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights series, announced last week that it had reached 4 million registered community members on its website. To celebrate the milestone the company has released a Baldur's Gate retrospective article featuring comments from developers, a new Aribeth's Farewell wallpaper for NWN fans, and a contest to win a trip to the Penny Arcade Expo.

From Baldur's Gate Ten Years:

Luke Kristjanson, Senior Writer:
"I remember when our publisher realized the scale of what we were making. They took 8x10 sheets of paper out to their parking lot and laid out a map of the game areas. Then they reevaluated the testing plan. Ten years since release—over twelve since I signed up to help write the thing—and I remember long nights, way too many kinds of pizza, and feeling like I was being allowed to make custom monkey bars for my favorite playground. I wanted to show there was a history to the place, that because of all the detail—and despite it— you could take it new directions and make it your own. The most gratifying thing is the enduring love or hatred for the characters we created. If that sprite/portrait combination can seem genuine or get under your skin, that's a story well played. Swords for everyone!"
