Podcast questions for Chris Avellone

by Jmustang1968 Mon Aug 19, 2013 1:51 am

With the together RPG of Planescape Torment right around the corner and the remake and Project Eternity on the horizon, I have scheduled Chris Avellone of Obsidian for an interview on our next show.

In the spirit of together rpg I am taking some question requests for the interview. So, if you have something you would like us to ask Chris on the show, reply here by Thursday. I will try to pick a few and incorporate them into the interview.

No questions for the lead designer of Planescape Torment?

Wow this is awesome! I didn't see the request for questions till you bumped it.

"Can you discuss some of the challenges you've run into when writing games with expansive dialogue trees and character-driven stories?"

"What are your fondest memories of working on Planescape: Torment?"

"Maybe a little like picking a favorite child, but what is one of your favorite games you've worked on?"
Let strength be granted, so the world might be mended...so the world might be mended.

What is the context for the question?


And last chance for question requests. I will be preparing him a list of questions to review tonight.

The overarching story in Planescape: Torment includes the question "What can change the nature of a man?" The game never actually spells it out. So it'd be fun to see his response to that question (make sure you include the inflection I added).
