Chris Klug, Stargate Worlds' creative director, is in the spotlight. This time, Warcry has had the pleasure of interviewing him.
I recently sat down with Chris Klug and Sara Baker of Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment (CME) to discuss their new MMO, “Stargate Worlds”. For those who aren't familiar with the series, Stargate is—in a nutshell—a world in which humans have found a strange alien device (called a Stargate) capable of transporting us to the distant reaches of the galaxy. After finding this device, we set up a special organization called Stargate Command to make use of it and see what's 'out there'. While exploring, we humans run into a hostile alien race called the Goa'ould, as well as other strange (and often-times dangerous) races and technologies. Being the meddlesome creatures that we are, humanity is pulled into the center of galactic struggles and must secure technologies to defend itself from threats as well as strike out to form alliances and make friends. It's epic, it's heroic, and it's the perfect backdrop for an action-packed sci-fi MMO that can impress and move. At present, Stargate Worlds is still in its early design, but after a lengthy conversation with our interviewees, we came away with about as detailed a look at the early game as we could have hoped for.
