Q: What will Ossian be working on next?
Alan: People are going to have to wait before hearing what weíre working on. Given that weíre an RPG developer, itís a good bet that itíll be an RPG.
Q: Do you think the fantasy RPG/RTS genre is stagnating in repetitious ideas (like the release of several Diablo-esque games of late), or do you think the industry is still tickling the edge of what is possible?
Alan: There will always be developers in the game industry that will push the edge of what is possible. It wonít necessarily be a lot of people, and it wonít be constant, but the drive is always there. Iíve seen and played my share of generic fantasy games and think that the advantage of trying to do something new and unique is that you have the potential to surpass all the clone games. I donít see RPGs or RTSs ever stagnating for overly long for that reason.
