I still get a lot of hits for ‘indigo prophecy shower scene’. Although it’s not a lot of hits, it turns up enough that I notice it. Indigo Prophecy (if you lived in the US) or Fahrenheit (if you lived anywhere else) is a rather cool little PS2 game, which you can also get on XBox Marketplace I noticed … well worth checking out.
The shower scene is perhaps one of the best scenes in the game, if not in gaming. Not for the reasons you think, but because of the atmosphere (heavy, dangerous and oppressive) and a few very cool tricks they pulled. One being the incredibly cool track that plays during the scene, that can later be switched off by using the stereo … all in all, it plays to all the stereotypes you expect of a scene like that.
The weekend is about to roll on, and no net yet. Monday I’m told. Roll on Monday indeed. I’ll be working for one, and finally about ready to get that all important ‘routine’ I talk about. Meanwhile I notice I’ve written 10 pages of notes for my Fallout RPG.
Anyone who reads too much of my blogs will know that I’m a writer who has too many outlets perhaps. Whether it be good old writing short stories or novels, or interactive fiction, or pick-your-own-adventure type books, or roleplaying games or any other number of things I do other than writing (not to mention all the crazy writing ideas I come up with).
I figure it all comes back to storytelling, and that’s what it is in the end, I guess. The want and need to tell stories, no matter what sort of medium it is.
Roleplaying, like any other storytelling sort of medium has its pitfalls and tricks and traps. As one might guess, it’s a story that is a little more interactive and co-operative than the standard pen and paper type, but can be just as rewarding as well.
So I know a lot of you are writers and all, but what other mediums of storytelling interest you? Fess up, all.
Just like well done shower scenes, it all comes back to storytelling and we all know what works and what doesn’t, no matter what the medium.
