Die Crew von Vanguard.Warcry hat ein Interview mit Travis Williams publiziert. Der Senior Producer bei Sigil Games beantwortet einige Fragen zu seinen bisherigen Lebenswegen, der Arbeit und Vanguard. Laut Travis, sind die besonderen Elemente von Everquest in Everquest 2 nicht mehr aufgetaucht. Vanguard wird kein Everquest Klon, allerdings wird das Spiel viele Ähnlichkeiten vorweisen.
Travis has extensive experience building worlds with White Wolf (creators of the World of Darkness universe, among others). We were curious as to what extent his time with them influenced his theories on how games should be constructed, and if he wanted to create a universe in addition to a game.
I know White Wolf is the place where rule systems come to die. We were never big on rules. We were big on settings though. I am the same way. It’s not enough that you have a dungeon. That dungeon needs to have a sense of history. As a player I am always asking myself WHY. If the answer is not compelling then I will stop playing. So I guess the short answer is YES. I do. The Lore Team here at Sigil is very committed to making a very deep world.
