Our good friend Marek over at Adventure Gamers
has published a great interview with Hal Barwood
, director of the upcoming action/adventure console title from LucasArts entitled RTX Red Rock
. In the interview, Hal discusses that project as well as his previous games like Fate of Atlantis
and Infernal Machine
. Here's a quote from Hal about RTX
I felt an urge to do some science fiction. I'm a Mars nut. I believe in heroes...and villains. As much contrast as possible. I like the idea of sending the player up against a group of strange and daunting space aliens that have their own purposes, and also their own weaknesses. I like the idea of getting into the game with a vague notion of the victory conditions (reconquer our colony on Mars), and also discovering, little by little, the deeper currents that run through the story.
