Arkane Studios are making Dishonored, and they’re also making some claims overnight about what exactly it is that gamers want. “I have a great deal of faith in those people [young gamers],” said Arkane’s Harvey Smith. “When we release a game like this kids sometimes come to us and say ‘this game blew my mind; I didn’t know games could do this; I only played very linear games before’.”
“That’s what we like to hear. I actually have more faith in the 13-year-olds as they’re playing things like Day Z or Dwarf Fortress or Eve Online,” said Smith. “They’re hungry for highly interactive, non-dogmatic experiences, I think.”
We’ll be bringing you more from Dishonored early next month at an upcoming hands-on session.
