Spam Spam Spam Humbug: Episode 59 – Which Came First: The Story or the Game?


Richard Garriott never designed his games for their stories. Usually, what came first were the the game concepts, the actions the player would be doing. There would probably be a basic idea of the plot, but the story would evolve during the game’s creation; primacy would be placed on the engine and systems, and the story would largely be crafted around these. This approach, however, made for the most holistic and fun experience; the story and the game mechanics influenced each other along the way.
