New Chris Avellone interview


Recommended Posts



Steven Heck is one of the most memorable characters in Alpha Protocol. Did you kind of expect that, or were you surprised by it? Did you like Nolan North's work? Did you choose him specifically? Some people think he shows up too often in games, but we think this is one of his best roles yet.


So Heck was a character concept in the first iteration of the story, and Travis Stout (who wrote the Taipei arc and also was a key writer on Old World Blues) did a great job with his lines. Travis simply knows how to write crazy and funny and then wrap it up in somebody's head. In the studio, it did seem like Nolan was enjoying the character a lot, so it seems to have paid off.


Can you tell us something about your next project without having to kill us later?


I am not on any single project now that the DLCs are wrapped up, I'm more involved with the high-level design pipelines of the company, playing builds, providing feedback, and writing new game pitches for publishers.

tarna's dead; processing... complete. Disappointed by Universe. RIP Hades/Sand/etc. Here's hoping your next alt has a harp.
