Nate Birkholz Discusses City Of Heroes
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

MMORPG.com has posted a new interview with Paragon Studios' Nate Birkholz, Producer for the comic book themed MMO, City of Heroes. The article covers a variety of topics including limitations of the superhero genre, player response to the good vs. evil dynamic, and the future of the game.

MMORPG.com:Do you find the Superhero genre limiting? In terms of setting, characters, good vs. evil?

Nate Birkholz:The superhero genre is remarkably broad. It incorporates science fiction, horror, fantasy, history, military, action, adventure… Even a little romance and a healthy dose of sex. We’ve told stories about alien invasions, secret societies, unrequited love, magical talismans, Orwellian dystopias, and scientific hubris. We’ve let players become paragons of truth and justice, infamous miscreants, as well as epitomes of fallen virtue or unlikely redemption. We have drawn lines in black and white and filled between those lines in endless shades of gray. So I’d say we haven’t found the limits yet.
