Crafting The Storyline For StarCraft II
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 4 comments

Blizzplanet has posted a new interview with StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty lead writer Brian Kindregan. The game developer discussed a variety of topics in relation to the game's story including branching storylines, the status of some famous characters, and whether or not choices made in Wings of Liberty will have an impact on the Heart of the Swarm expansion.

I’m not sure if you can talk about this, but let’s say you’re playing Heart of the Swarm – does it make any checks to see what choices you had made when you were playing Wings of Liberty?

We do have that technology *laughs*

A lot of the backstory seems to be expanded through the manga and the novels – what have the writers introduced themselves and what were they told to introduce? For example the Voice in the Darkness and the Dark Void character, which came first – was it an internal decision for the writers to put in, or did the writers put it in and you guys thought it was a good idea?
Most of what you will find in the manga are one off stories that are still a part of the universe and expands our knowledge of the universe. It’s safe to say that the Voice in the Darkness and the Dark Void are two different entities. As far as Blizzard works with the authors there’s a lot of back and forth and a lot of talking. It’s not just Blizzard telling these authors “Hey, can you write a book about Nova? Thanks! See you on the other side.” And I would like there to be even more communication than that so that we could really bring the manga and the novels to be even more intertwined with the games. That way we can introduce stuff in one that pays off in the other and vice versa. that’s definitely something we are doing and want to do more of.

Head over to the links below, which may contain spoilers for those who have yet to finish StarCraft II's main campaign.
