  • Mirror's Edge writer Rhianna Pratchett isn't working on Mirror's Edge 2

    @peori I don't think I've ever talked about my writing being hacked about in other games, certainly not to the level it was in Mirror's Edge. But you're always working within quite restrictive boundaries.

    It wasn't so much that they cut out level dialogue (which is a valid choice) but that it was done so late, after the entire script had been written and recorded. So obviously it had been written to have a lot of character, world and plot deepening as part of that level dialogue. If I'd known earlier that Faith wasn't going to speak in levels I would have written and weighted things differently.

    As for the ending. There were various options. That was the one that was chosen.

    Games writing is not an easy gig. If you think it is, then please, by all means give it a go. I shall be standing by with much needed alcoholic beverages.

    @peori "Yes, she had the same complaint about her writing on TR being hacked up too."

    Where exactly have I *ever* said that about Tomb Raider?

    Hi Oil,

    Just wanted to address a minor point. The line about the late shift at the Nine Bells has nothing to do with referring to her "homicidal aptitude." It's in reference to the dressing she's recently put on Roth's wound.

    The Overlord didn't die at the end of Raising Hell. He was sealed in the Infernal Abyss by the Forgotten God and the Minion Jester. Reply 0
