If you haven't heard by now, Funcom is releasing a new single player horror game called The Park. Aywren, Gryph, and Syp have all wrote great pieces about it, so go check out their thoughts!
I know this is probably deemed a form of "fangirling", but at the same time, is it really?
"What do you mean, Chestnut?"
Well, I'll tell you! I know that I enjoy the writing, animation, etc. that goes along with The Secret World. It takes a genre I normally shy away from, and makes it immersive enough for me to greatly enjoy my time spent within it. So much so that it has gone from "Oh yeah, I used to play that when it first released..." to tied for my first-spot MMO-of-choice.
If I know that I enjoy the styles and ideas employed by the developers and writers within the project, so it stands to reason that I would enjoy their styles and ideas employed within another game. It also stands to reason that since I enjoy The Secret World as a whole, a game set within the same universe would be something I would check out.
I'm looking forward to more details, and am adding The Park to a goals-list I have in the works... which I will delve more into later.
