Mars Attacks In October
There’s now an official War Of The Worlds game website up on Beta here, with some interesting footage of war-blasted London. Fellow writers had warned me about taking a commission on a video game, but this was a total hoot to write, with terrifically helpful clients who explained the problems clearly, leaving me to have the most fun I’ve had in ages. I hope I get to do another one with the same team in the future. The game is a kind of retro 2D side-scroller with realistic character action, but is as much about storytelling, music and atmosphere as gameplay.
