Here is a continuation of last week's interview with Eclipse Phase developers Brian Cross and Rob Boyle. This is part of an hour long transcript we made while meeting with the developers at Gencon Indy. Part three will be published next week and will conclude the interview.
Earth is gone. Mankind is now a digital species whose consciousnesses exist as streams of data awaiting a new home, be it an idealized meat body or a robotic working husk. Scattered amongst the planets, our homeworld gone, humanity is dying. This is the world Eclipse Phase, an upcoming sci-fi horror RPG from Catalyst Game Labs. While at Gencon 2008 we sat down with designers Rob Boyle and Brian Cross for a conversation about their upcoming tabletop RPG.
King's Bounty: The Legend is a followup to one of New World Computing's earliest games, King's Bounty. While the latter was published almost two decades ago on the PC and later on the Genesis, King's Bounty: The Legend appears to have retained many of the core aspects of gameplay that made its predecessor, a forerunner to the Heroes of Might and Magic series, so much fun. After an impromptu demo and play through on the Gencon exhibitor's hall floor here are our impressions.
Keep your eyes open this week for on-site coverage of Gencon 2008! Bluealien is heading up to Indianapolis Wednesday and we will be posting video, audio and articles as we get them.
