Tuque Games has a new announcement that indicates it is now working on a licensed Dungeons & Dragons game. While that is literally the only information about the game itself that is offered, the jobs listings reveal a few tidbits that may indicate an RPG / cRPG is in the works.

In the description for the Narrative Designer job, a couple things caught my eye:

  • The narrative designer reports to the lead narrative designer and will be tasked with designing and integrating various narrative elements of our game with an emphasis on a branching conversation system.
  • Propose narrative structure of quests, write cinematics, branching conversations, in-game barks and banter
  • Compose character bios, write lore for objects, locations, and assist the lead narrative designer in all matters related to writing and narrative.
  • Demonstrate an ability to create an emotional response in characters and players within the context game narrative.

Tuque Games originally developed Livelock.

What do you think? What do you hope? Could it possibly be another D&D-based MMO? Leave us your thoughts in the comments.

The original Dungeons & Dragons Online launched in 2006. Is it time?
