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.
