Default Jade Empire - SE "Retrospective" @ CVG

June 11th, 2007, 10:57
I've put "retrospective" in quotes because this article is really more of a low-key sales pitch than a true retrospective with BioWare's Diamid Clarke avoiding any negative or revealing comments about Jade Empire's development:
Diarmid Clarke: Not being constrained by other peoples rules means you can be a lot more imaginative with the kind of things you can do. We didn't want to be constrained by a real universe. Once you step away from the real world, you can just do things because it feels cool or it looks nice, and you don't have to worry about people complaining that it never really happened. For us, it's the escapism of games, and telling the stories you want to tell. We made a fighter simulation once, called Operation Overlord. A guy phoned up to complain that Biggin Hill landing strip is 15-degrees further north than it should be. It makes you think, 'It's also just a vector graphic rectangle', but people get very defensive when it's meant to be true.
More information.

Well, when people don't know what they're doing, it's quite expectable…

and the Xbox 360 gave us the lift of power we needed to make the game we wanted to make.
Um … did someone forget to to the developers that they relesaed the game on the original XBOX?
