The SyFy Channel's
television show / massively multiplayer game is definitely a one of a kind idea, but we find ourselves wondering how the whole thing will work.
It's really a question of how the two mediums -- one being an MMO and the other being the television show -- will effect one another. A recent, specific quote from a video with
Lars Buttler, CEO of Trion World Network
and SyFy President David Howe seems telling, "They not only promote each other, they literally depend on each other and co-evolve."
Can we expect a game that allows players to alter the course of the show and vice versa? It would seem so, or at least that's what we're hearing in so many words.
But we'd like to know what you think, and more specifically what you'd like to see from this decidedly big project. Would you be happy with a television show and MMO that bounced off of each from time to time, or do you want something more from this joint project between Trion
