"To share intent..."


He did show what he intended the game to be, it just ended up nothing like what he was going for.

I really wish there was some way to get a look at the script that David Weddle and Bradley Thompson worked on. Was it scrapped because it was too complicated or could it possibly have been worse than what we got?

I don't know if that's possible.

There is no way that their script was even worse than what we ended up getting. I refuse to believe that such a possibility could even exist.

GBX probably couldn't fit enough of a game into a script that was very intricate...so they had to go with something more simple in the end.  The overall quality of the game matches the overall quality of the script when you think about it.  I'm sure that GBX's investment in the project squandered any good ideas that the original writers had going into the project. 

No commitment to level design, cut scenes, or even finishing the game = your game will be crap in writing department too.  No way around it.

The saddest thing about the game is that is sold very well despite it's quality...that's a message to other game companies to follow suit and do the same thing.

It couldn't have been worse, that's impossible.

That script was from back when the game was going to have us visit other places than LV-426 I believe, it probably got scrapped because of the shift to focusing entirely on LV-426.
