Myth III: the Wolf Age Interview and Screenshots
7:36 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story
Following XGR's interview with Scott Cambell of Mumbo Jumbo on Friday, they've posted the full informal chat in mp3 format along with a number of screenshot's from Myth III. The interview has been separated into 5 parts (each around 5-10Mb in size) with a brief summary of each, so those with slower connection should be able to listen to the sections which they are most interested in.
The first clip covers the background of MumboJumbo, how it was formed by members' of Ritual and Contraband and Scott's background in gaming. Following this we have some info on what Scott actually does within Mumbo Jumbo and more Myth III specifics. We also hear, straight from the horse's mouth, that Myth III has just reached Alpha and is expected to be complete and on store shelves in November! This extremely quick development cycle - approximately a year - has been partly due to the tools received from Ritual and Bungie which enabled the team to start designing characters and levels virtually straight away. There's also plenty of background info including how in this game, being a prequel, you get to play the Fallen Lords such as Soulblighter in their initial incarnations. A thousand years before the era in which the original Myth is set, many of the characters we know and love were hero's rather than the bad-guys that they eventually become.
Take Two are publishing the PC version and MacSoft the Mac version, Scott imagines that MacSoft will be aiming for a simultaneous Mac/PC release but this is currently an unknown. As far as the developers, Mumbo Jumbo are working, everything is being built and compiled simultaneously as they go along. There's even mention of the OS X version. This is definitely a good sign and shows what commitment and Mac experience the team have.
