Neverwinter Nights Interview
3:11 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

In the midst of all of the MacWorld excitement, there is actually other news worth reporting. WomenGamers.com has a new interview with Bioware's producer for Neverwinter Nights Trent Oster. We haven't heard much about NWN since E3, so it's worth heading over to get a little refresher course on this game. In case you're wondering, Neverwinter Nights is a 3D RPG that is attempting to fully recreate the pen-and paper-AD&D experience. It will feature amazing graphics, an intuitive interface and a simple but very powerful 'module' editor that will allow you to create your own worlds. Here's a clip from the interview:

Tell us a bit about the Dungeon Master interface. How much will the DM be able to control the game? Is it possible for the DM to switch
camera views to see different world areas, or to find separate party members?

We are still in the middle of designing the DM interface and a large number of possibilities are still up in the
air. Our goal is to allow the DM to interact with the game with the same omnipotence he/she would have in
the pen and paper system. To this end, the DM has to have quick access to all the creatures in the game, so
a quick encounter should be easy to drop in on an unsuspecting party. The DM also has to have a method
for keeping an eye on the players and watching their progress.

Be sure to head over and read the rest of the interview. You just can't get too much of Dana Scully, Warrior Princess...
