If you've been following the development of SOE's Free Realms lately, you're probably pretty excited about everything it has to offer. If you haven't been following its development, check out Massively's extensive coverage and exclusive interviews with its developers. Ready for even more exclusive interviews? Good, because just last week Massively sat down with Rosie Rappaport, the Art Director for Free Realms, to chat about the game's distinctive art style and the concept process involved.
Since Free Realms is different from anything else out there currently, its style and feel are very important to its brand. This was a special challenge for Ms. Rappaport, coming off of her time as Art Director for EverQuest years earlier.
