GameSpy Hosts Black & White II Developer Diary
6:23 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story

The well known gaming site GameSpy has started to host a developer diary for Lionhead Studios' upcoming strategic god simulator Black & White II. In part one of the diary, John McLean-Foreman, storywriter at Lionhead Studios, describes the art of brainstorming that lies behind the creation of a game such as Black & White II.

A small excerpt:

Lionhead prefers to do relaxed brainstorming sessions away from the distractions of the office, phones, and e-mails. This method has historically worked very well for Peter on games like Syndicate, Dungeon Keeper, and Black & White. Apart from being good fun, it really gives everyone an opportunity to relax and voice opinions that they might not otherwise get a chance to share.

As is the case with all such sessions, a bad idea, or often a joke, will spark another idea that sparks another, and another. The idea begins to clarify, and become more focused.

If you want to read the full, two-page entry in the diary, just click the link below to reach it.

It is still unclear if we will get a Macintosh version of Black & White II, but we pray to the gods that we will see it brought to our favorite platform in the future.
