Dragon Age, Star Wars RPG Writer Announces New Game And Studio


Quote:
David Gaider, the veteran BioWare writer who spent nearly two decades at the company before leaving, has announced he's starting a new studio. Together with former Obsidian developer Liam Esler, Gaider is heading up a brand-new Melbourne, Australia-based studio called Summerfall Studios. The studio's first game is an "illustrated character-driven adventure" title.

The untitled game will be funded on Kickstarter, though neither a funding target nor other details were not announced. The campaign will go live on October 10 at 5:30 PM PT, timed with Gaider's appearance at PAX Australia in Melbourne.

This is the person who caused the stir on "inclusion" for Bioware games and talked often about "how difficult" it was to have LGBT characters in gaming all the while writing the most outstanding trope alphabet characters in the Bioware games he worked on.

Maybe if he stayed away from tropes and made things organic instead of sending out press releases about how Gay Characters were making their way into Dragon Age people would be more appreciative of the efforts.

I wonder what his own game is going to be about... hmmm.

Dude.....Gaider is GAY. Of course he's going to try to push the inclusion agenda! I mean seriously, wow.

He should have called his studio Darth Gayder.

I have zero interest in crowd-funded games/studios. It always feels like a scam, because this way they don't have to worry about paying back lenders, so they don't have to worry about deadlines, or releasing a solid product.

If they end up releasing a well-made game, I'll gladly purchase it. I will not, however, give you money up front based on a vision, or idea. I need to know there will be a return on investment.
