MacGamer has posted an interview with Jeff Vogel of Spiderweb Software, creators of the Exile series of RPGs. The discussion centers around GeneForge, the next title in the queue for Vogel and a sharp departure from the much-loved traditional RPGs Spiderweb is known for. Accompanied by several 3D renders of game characters, the article discusses the plot, gameplay and inspirations behind this unusual title. Here's an excerpt:
What's the basic plot of GeneForge?Read the rest of the interview for more details, and visit the Spiderweb site for information and demos of their past games.
You are a member of the guild of Shapers, a secret clan of wizards with the ability to create and mold lifeforms to suit their purposes. You have been kidnapped, however, and taken to a remote area. It is an area closed off and forbidden by the shapers, because it contains a number of rogue creations, dangerous and powerful creatures they don't want anyone to know about.
You've been brought there by a man who wants to steal the secrets of the shapers and use them himself. You will have to decide whether he should be fought or helped.
Is the GeneForge world in a fantasy setting like Dungeons and Dragons, or a futuristic setting?
It's a fantasy setting, but with technological elements. They sort of exist side by side.
