A Video Intro to Otherland


Kevin Buckner introduces us to an MMORPG like you've never seen before.


Involved with numerous projects at MicroProse, EA, and Hasbro Interactive, Senior Producer Kevin Buckner's current project, Otherland, takes reality as the starting point as players enter an intentionally virtual world. Buckner gives us the elevator description of the bestselling Tad Williams saga that serves as the underpinning of the game, before describing two of the game's worlds, Lambda Mall and Mars, in depth.

We caught up to Buckner during a DTP-sponsored sunset cruise (DTP is the game's Hamburg-based publisher) in Singapore harbor, so please pardon the slight motion and wind noise. Fortunately our sea legs were up to the challenge.
