HomeLAN Fed's Tales Of
Alvin Maker Q&A
covers the recently announced MMORPG based on the works of
author Orson Scott Card in a discussion with Andrew Tepper from developer
eGenesis: "Before ATITD existed I contacted Orson Scott Card about helping out
with "a unique sort of MMO" - I had no particular theme or story in mind, but
did have the concept for a game based on social puzzles and moral dilemmas
(crafting too!). OSC was the one writer who tackled these issues brilliantly. Of
course at the time we were one of a zillion unknown game companies with no track
record and no experience. Still, we corresponded a bit - that was years ago. I
contacted him again recently because I love the Alvin Maker series of books.
Almost immediately we both knew that this game must be made, and so we agreed to
make it happen."
