Quest Design For Kids

Quest Design For Kids - MMORPG.com

MMORPG.com's Carolyn Koh returns this week with her look at building an MMO for kids through the eyes of various developers of SOE's Free Realms. Today, Carolyn talks to Content Designer Tiffany Chu about writing quests for kids.

Tiffany Chu is a Content Designer and works on Quests in Free Realms, the kid's MMO by SoE. We speak to her this week about designing quests for kids. Her experience has been in regular adult games. An FPS - Turning Point: Fall of Liberty at Legendary Spark Studios and games based on the Vampire the Masquerade franchise are recent games she worked on, with a Neo Pets game for the PSP, Petpet Adventures, the only other kid's title she has worked on.

The obvious differences are the usual "no-nos" of sex, tobacco, alcohol and drugs references, I was told. "But even the interpretation can be so different," Tiffany said, referring to a quest to brew your own soda. "So we've got a quest to learn to brew Sasparilla. It's made of a root, and it is bubbly. Just because we have the word 'brew' in it, we've had these comments that it's inappropriate for kids!"
