We've chosen 7 questions that we feel are the "best of the best" and have put them up for selection. Remember that only two will go through so the top two by Wednesday April 25th will be sent off to gamigo and asked to Tad Williams! The poll will automatically close at 12:00pm PST on April 25. You can vote TWICE in this poll for your favourite two!
- Question 1 by Thanateros
How do you feel about the results of the Otherland Game? Are you satisfied with the results and do think the game will reflect the awesome world you've created in your Otherland books so that even those people who didn't read the books will get in its charm?
- Question 2 by Azador
in which way have you been implicated in the process of creation? Do you plan to play the game and what feature are you most excited about?
- Question 3 by Nexiom
How much of the MMO's storyline past the books have you had direct input on, and how does it tie in with the actual story? Will we be fighting bosses or things from the books in the game?
- Question 4 by Rekreant
Have you created something new (story, characters, simulations, etc.) related to the Otherland universe specialy for the game purposes?
- Question 5 by Siroul
Hey Ted, I was wondering do you think that the Otherland mmorpg relates enough to the awesome books? Also for the people who have not read the books will the game be able to tell a portion or an alternate re telling of the books in a way?
- Question 6 by Akida
How will the creation be implemented? Will it be scripting and polygon models, etcetc, like Second Life, or will it be more simplistic? Also what will you be doing with the combat to make it stand out from the hundreds of cookie-cutter MMOs out there?
- Question 7 by Cheesydave
Can you comment if or how the events in the books appear in the game? Will the story told in the game provide additional insight into the characters in the books, or will the events in the game and those in the books occur separately?
