The Rewind: Pax Prime 2014 Behemoth Interview

Pax Prime 2014: Behemoth

Aaron:
Yea, I purposely do not tell Dan or anybody else how the quests play out because I wanted to get their gut reaction. That’s my goal. My goal is to make it so that it’s not something you just skip through so that you can get to your experience and get to your monies. I want it to always feel surprising. I want the end of a quest to never be something you could have anticipated from the beginning. Like you probably didn’t expect conquistadors to show up when you went to fight at that beach at the end of the demo, right?

RFMag_Dani:
Yea!

Aaron:
See! It’s that kind of thing. Or a space shuttle to suddenly land in the middle of the castle.

RFMag_Dani:
Or for them to just slam the poor little girl that was just having some fun in the sun on the beach.

Aaron:
Ok, well that wasn’t my quest. I just got to put that out there.

[laughter]

It was another gentlemen on my team that has to answer for that. But, no, it sort of makes fun of the idea of that you are heroic adventurers on an epic quest around the world because you know you’re there to save the girl from the mean bullies, oh wait no no I’m not. That’s too late for that.

[laughter]

RFMag_Dani:
Yup, well it was too late to do that
