Lord British Bringing Lineage To The U.S.

from the crossing-over dept

A good article about how the guy who created Ultima is now working very hard to bring the online computer game Lineage to the U.S. I’ve heard people talk about what a phenomenon Lineage has been in Korea (and, more recently, Japan and Taiwan), and I wonder if it will find the same success here. The article seems a little doubtful, suggesting different cultural expectations, that might not make the game nearly as popular here. The article also talks a little bit about what makes Richard Garriott tick – and the other game he’s working on, called Tabula Rasa.
