Eurogamer:

The making of Alpha Protocol, Obsidian's secret best RPG

Imagine a glitzy cinematic sequence where you, as a secret agent, fight your way through an aeroplane soaring through the sky. You're pressing button prompts appearing on the screen while your hero whacks, chops, spins and kicks at the baddie in your way. "You fight all the way down until eventually you beat the guy and rip off his parachute and, I don't know, break his neck, and he floats off and you use his parachute to land." Sounds great, like a James Bond or Jack Bauer or Jason Bourne scene, or something from Uncharted 3, which hadn't been made yet.

If you treat them as the enemy, itís not going to be a good relationship.Ē Obsidianís Feargus Urquhart on publishers

Since its foundation in 2003, Obsidian Entertainment has worked with seven different publishers. Commencing with LucasArts on Knights of the Old Republic II, Obsidian has since signed contracts with Atari, SEGA, Bethesda, Square Enix, Ubisoft and most recently, Paradox Interactive.

Got a little misty-eyed when Feargus pulled the dusty old NWN PC game off the shelf of the forgotten cabinet in the darkest regions of the building… I miss single player Forgotten Realms RPGs.

Anyway, cool tour. I never would have thought Obsidian was that big-- rent must cost a fortune there! As for the secret project- I desperately would like to see an Obsidian-made Fallout game based in the San Francisco area.
