Anatomy of a Page is a new section on the Tower. In this series we’ll detail a bit of what go into the development process of Project 0 and our other work. Consider it an insider behind the scenes look at how we do what we do.
On Brainstorming: The two of us sit around for a few hours for a few days to talk about where we want to take the story. These discussions will cover which characters to feature, what parts of the personalities to highlight and any themes we want to convey in the final document. It’s far from anything formal.
The discussions are pretty much any conversation that goes in that direction. Expect a lot of banter and the occasional disputes over what sounds any good before we even understand what it is we’re talking about. There’s a lot of big picture stuff we both get, but it’s the details about how things should play out that are hard to nail down.
Take my word for it these conversations are actually pretty cool. Maybe we should start podcasting…
We also brainstorm about how witty we should make these blog updates. Sometimes less is more.
We’ll have these updates interspersed with the character bios, equipment and other pages. in the mean time let us know what you think- leave a comment or two.
