Age of Conan: Unchained News - Romain Amiel Steps Up as New Game Director

Posted by Suzie Ford on Jan 20, 2016  | Comments

Age of Conan has a new game director in the form of The Secret World lead designer Romain Amiel. Amiel has penned the latest game update, mainly to introduce himself, and to provide his credentials as someone who has worked on AoC in earlier years before moving on to TSW.

While we're on the subject of controversy, I'm also the guy "responsible" for the Enigmata of Yag! This was intended to be the last and hardest dungeon of RotGS and I was challenged to write a design that was like nothing that was ever done before, in a most unique location...  simple! I started with the idea that the players would actually not be fighting the boss. The design evolved from there to keep things interesting and get all players constantly engaged. This may have ended up with a few curses thrown my way (with a keyboard or two...) during some of the internal playtests... but it was all worth it!

You can read Amiel's letter and a 2015 game summary on the Age of Conan site.
