Age of Conan: Unchained

  • Johan Tenga has a new entry up at his Age of Conan blog

    So what do I mean when I say 'polished'? Seeing something without real graphics or with placeholders scattered around and seeing it complete with the correct graphics in the right environment is totally different. We spend quite some time working on versions with placeholders or things that aren't quite finished yet, so seeing something finished and 'polished' even if its just a small feature in the scope of the entire game is always nice!

  • We had the movies, we had the comic books and now my friends... we have the novels. The Age of Conan Official site has the details

    We caught up with Jeff Mariotte, author of the new novel trilogy Age of Conan: Marauders to find out a little about what its like to be working on the Conan license!

    Here is what he had to say when we asked what it meant to him to be part of the license team!

    Age of Conan is more than just a game—it’s a multi-pronged effort by Conan Properties International and some talented creative partners to expand upon parts of Robert E. Howard’s Hyborian Age that Howard, during his too-brief career, didn’t have a chance to thoroughly explore. To be asked by CPI and Ace Books to become part of that process, by writing the first-ever young adult novels set in the Hyborian world, is an honor and a privilege for a long-time REH fan like me.

    I'd say unleash the barbarian in yourself, but if you're going to come out with a really bad accent then eh, don't bother.

  • 1up has given Johan Tenga, lead designer for Age of Conan his very own blog!

    So maybe I should start with telling you a little about myself and Age of Conan, which I am currently working on. Well first off what about me? I started to work for Funcom at the customer support department back in 2001. If you played Anarchy Online around that time you might know me as my GM character Belith.

    Heesh they'll just let anyone have their own blog these days! (Just kidding. It's a good read)

  • There's a new Age of Conan QNA up at OGaming with Funcom's Gaute Godager.

    OGaming: Why, of all licensed properties to choose from, did you folks decide to go with Conan the Barbarian?

    Gaute Godager: Conan's exploits occur in a very dark, brutal and sensuous universe. You might not realize it, but more than 70 years of books, comics, movies and lore has made the Hyborian realm a very deep and meaningful place to set an online Action-RPG in. Sadly, to many people, their knowledge of the Conan universe extends to the '80s movies [starring actor Arnold Schwarzenegger], with all their strengths and weaknesses. I am glad to inform everyone that Hyboria is so much, so very much, more than that.

    The Hyborian world is like a decadent, dark, twisted and corrupt version of Euro-Asian history. Take a bit of the Roman empire, Mongolian culture, Babylonian mysticism, '30s myths of undiscovered Africa, and much, much more – mix it all and add a dash of brutal darkness and you can see the shadow of something very unique and quite interesting brewing. Put on the lid and let it cook until it is about to explode and you are ready to sample the world of Hyboria...

    I'll tell you why they chose Conan.. it's because he's the most butt kickingest barbarian that ever lived! Sheesh.
