Richard Garriott Q&A

Posted Mon, Oct 29, 2007 by RadarX

This one snuck in under the radar and was almost buried in a sea of launch and End of Beta news. Next-Gen biz has published a Q&A with the General himself asking Garriott about the development process, ethical questions, and my personal favorite " Why should people care about Tabula Rasa, beyond the standard bullet points?"

Tell us a little bit about your process.

We’ll sit down with a few primary over-arching goals. A blend of major over-arching aspirations that we want to add or fix from the genre. We then start to cull those ideas down to which of those ideas would work within one game. When we have one group of ideas that reaches a high enough peak that’s when we know we have a game ready.

Head on over to Next-Gen and see this whole Q&A.


Years have passed since the cancellation of Tabula Rasa, but some fans still want the game back.
