Terri Perkins of Funcom sits down in the first half of a two part Q&A to discuss "Age of Conan" the upcoming licensed MMORPG offering from Funcom; the folks who brought you Anarchy Online.
| MMORPG.com: Graphically, Age of Conan is among the most beautiful games I’ve seen. Can you tell us a bit about what type of computer will be needed to run it and the theory behind your game’s art direction?
Terri Perkins: We don’t yet know the requirements and recommendations for computers to run Age of Conan, this will take a great deal of testing and we’re just not there quite yet.
Thank you for the nice words about our art! Funcom is truly blessed to have some of the most talented artists in the world and the art is definitely awe inspiring. The theory or goal for our art is to make it look and feel as if you were there. This type of beauty brings forth a magical realism that is stunning. Technology advances coupled with such artistic talent as we have contribute to this. I think that most who have seen portions of Conan at this point state that it’s the most beautiful game they’ve seen.in this genre.. Eye candy doesn’t do it justice..it’s a visual euphoria.
