Loki - Interview @ Pro-G
Cyanide's Patrick Pligersdorffer has been interviewed at Pro-G about Loki and get's straight to the point about the action qualities:
Pro-G: We've seen several different interpretations of the action-RPG recently. How did you approach mixing the various merits of the two genres?
Patrick Pligersdorffer: I would say we have developed more of an action game. There is not too much dialogue and we wanted to make it that way. Of course the RPG elements come with the weapons and spells and experience points and so on.
SP/MP: Single + MP
