Game|Life was able to track down BioWare's Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk for a short Q&A about their recently announced Sonic the Hedgehog RPG.
Q: Given BioWare's wealth of RPG experience, what have you learned not to do for this project?
A: With this project our team will be crafting an RPG that is still rich in story but which also has awesome pacing, full of those (wow) moments that keep you wanting to find out what happens next. Sonic is perfect for that, since the Sonic universe is full of very cool characters and is already very fast-paced to begin with. Also, people don't tend to spend quite as many hours in a row on the DS as they would when playing a BioWare game for console or PC, so gamers can expect the Sonic RPG to not only be fast-paced, but very easy to pick up and play at length or in shorter bursts whichever they prefer!
