Mysteries of Scandanavia

Posted on: March 24th, 2010 by wmapother 3 Comments

Why are people from Scandanavia so kind?  Is the weather too cold to get annoyed?  Do the blonds put everyone in a good mood?  Is it just so much fun to say ‘fjord‘ all the time?  Whatever the reason, today I had an encounter with the kindly folk from way, way over there.

I was called in to play a character in a very cool upcoming MMRPG (massive multiplayer role playing game), or, as this type of game is known among those in a hurry, MMO (massively multiplayer online game).  The game is called “The Secret World” and is begin developed by Funcom.  In this post are a couple pieces of artwork from the game’s website here.

The director and writer were piped into my headset from Norway, which made the entire session feel like a game of its own, as if I were simply an avatar for a pair of thrill-seekers from the archipelago of Svalbard.  Based on the fun I had and their generous and insightful comments, there are many, many worse things to be.

Of course I can’t tell you anything about the game (as if!), but the link above offers some intriguing teasers.  What I can say is that the script and characters were very well written, and I hope they hurry up and release the dang game already.

    You know what I like most in your career? you're always willing to work in any media: TV,movies, theater…only some actors like to work in TV or in movies.
    when we like the work of someone, it sucks to wait a year(sometimes longer)to see him acting.
    With you are different you are always present in our lives!

    Thanks for never leaving us waiting!
