Momchil Dilov is the very busy lead writer of the upcoming post-apocalyptic MMO Earthrise
, but he found time in his schedule to sit down and chat about the new game's story, his influences, and how to write for gaming audiences.
In his conversation with Gamesource.it
, Dilov emphasized that players will be able to experience the story in a complete sandbox environment. He says that writing for books and movies is similar to writing for games, while writing for games you always have to keep the player in mind. You need to let your writing allow the player to experience the story, rather than simply giving the story to the player with your writing. As Dilov has said, "The greatest challenge in game writing is to tell the story, but not to confine the player inside it.
