6:11 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Telltale Games has released a new internal interview with Law & Order: Legacies lead designer Ryan Kaufman. The developer discussed the process of turning the long running television series into a game. Law & Order: Legacies will feature a "dream team" of investigators and attorneys from the long running Law & Order television franchise, and will give players the chance to solve a case with their favorite team.
"When you work on a licensed game, itís really great to have a license you truly love. And Iím a big Law & Order fan, so diving into a game based on the tv series was an absolute blast. I watched the show mainly during the Briscoe/Logan/Curtis era, so it was natural to include that time period as part of our overall story arc. But the great thing about L&O is that you can dip in almost anywhere-- any year, any era-- and immediately know whatís going on. I have a huge amount of respect for the show creators and writers that they were able to keep it interesting within a standard format Ö for 20 years!The Mac and Windows PC versions of Law & Order: Legacies will be released "early this year."

We knew right away the most important thing to do was capture the distinctive feel of the show. Law & Order has an incredibly quick rhythm to it; the dialog is clipped and tight, and the scenes rarely last more than 2 minutes. It was a challenge to offer a game experience with a similar full gallop pace. We also knew we had to really make you feel the moral choices and compromises being made in court. Law & Order is always great at sparking debate about how justice was (or wasnít) done in any particular case.
