Coupling the refined sensibilities of Deus Ex
designer, Warren Spector
, with the more commercial tendencies of Hollywood seems like a dangerous situation, especially in how it allows for ill-advised Perfect Strangers
references. During last week's Game Developer's Conference
, Mr. Spector vaguely described
two of his upcoming projects to Eurogamer. One is based on an original gameworld he created with his fantasy writer wife, Caroline Spector, while the other is a "collaboration with a fellow you would have heard of out of Hollywood."
The latter title seems particularly interesting, if only because of the unusual cooperation between an entity that traditionally encourages compartmentalized safe bets and another that takes pleasure in smashing genre conventions with a mallet. Since it's unlikely to be a licensed title, it leaves us speculating about how exactly the Hollywood touch will play into Spector's plans
. Could a first-person Night at the Museum
RPG be in the works?
Of course not, don't be reedigulas!
