Interview with Aion's Associate Producer Lani Blazier

Posted Thu, Jun 25, 2009 by Martuk

Game Informer recently got the chance to speak with Associate Producer, Lani Blazier about NCsoft's highly anticipated MMORPG, Aion. If the name Lani Blazier isn't enough to solidify her as a gamer, she also provides plenty of insight into the games lore and content.

Two things come to mind. The first one is customization. Aion offers two types of customization: character and gameplay. With character customization, we offer a player 22 default faces to choose from, and from there they can play around with over 30 sliders that adjust anything from chin angle to eyebrow arches. This lets players create a truly unique-looking character. Although this is cosmetic, we realized early on that is a very important feature for players. After all, no one wants to run around a world where every other person looks exactly like you. I think it’s safe to say that you’ll rarely ever run into someone that could be mistaken for your character’s twin.
