This is old news, but I was thinking about how successful something like this could be whenever they get it right.
According to this profile in the L.A. Times, the network is partnering with role-playing game designer Trion Worlds to develop a science-fiction franchise that would tie a television series to an online game in the vein of Worlds Of Warcraft, allowing players to guide the events of the show, then watch them play out week to week in a scripted drama that would incorporate scenes of their gameplay.
It’s going to consume someone.
I was also thinking this back in the long long ago from over a week ago: Where the discrepancies are greatest, the fences are no longer holding.
Now there’s that to deal with.
