With Chris Taylor taking his RPG machinations into the future with the studio's next release, Space Siege, and self-styled third-party champions Sega set to publish, we thought it was time for a chin-wag.
Q:Why the departure from the fantasy-theme? Have you had it with the goblins and magic spells?
A: The science fiction setting really opened up a lot of avenues for us in terms how the story could be told, the interesting moral decisions, and the types of combat we could use. It wasn't a case of losing interest in fantasy -- which we still all love -- it was more of a case of wanting to scratch a different creative itch.
