Timothy Zahn is creating a Video Game

Anonymous Coward writes | about a year ago

An anonymous reader writes "Timothy Zahn, one of the most influential Star Wars Expanded Universe authors (creator of Grand Admiral Thrawn and Mara Jade), and writer of 40 novels and 90+ short stories, will be trying his hand as the Creative Director for a new video game, "Timothy Zahn's Parallax". From the Kickstarter page:

The game concept is heavily inspired by the original Master of Orion but, because Timothy Zahn is the co-creator, a major focus is going to be on making sure that each alien race is as fully-realized as possible, and that the interactions with the other aliens are realistic: talking to one alien race will be different than talking to another, and the choices you make in the game will have side effects and the computer players will remember them — and treat you differently because of them.

Other highlights:

  • The game will include at least 5 of his non-Star Wars alien races (Modhri, Kalixiri, Zhirrzh, Qanska and Pom)
  • Backers will be active participants in the game creation process
  • "No Digital Rights Management foolishness"

The Kickstarter starts at 6pm MST today."
