'Black & White 2' Developer Chat On Monday!

by Thomas on Nov. 21, 2003 @ 6:28 a.m. PST

In Black & White you left the world behind because it was exactly how you wanted it to be. The whole world believed in you. As a god, your job was done. But since you've been away, things have changed. The tribes have discovered technology and are embracing the power it brings with a zeal bordering on the religious. And with new technology comes war. Are you ready for war? You had better be, because the people of Eden are and they need guidance. Whether you persuade them to fight, or encourage them to be peaceful... it's up to you.

The moderated chat will start at 6:30 GMT, and there will be at least five members of the development team present at this chat. These will include; Peter Molyneux and Jonty Barnes, as well as several other members of Black & White Studios and Lionhead Studios.

Topics have not been set, anyone is free to ask a question and share their ideas.
