Who writes the other stuff?

Post by G3n0c1de » Fri Dec 11, 2009 11:18 pm

I'm not sure if it's been discussed before, but I am curious as to who is responsible for writing the non-path scenes in the game? Like who wrote the intro and hospital scene? Or who's twisted mind does Kenji's dialogue come from? I assume that the path writers also take these on. How is it decided who will write these scenes? Do you just go 'Hey we need (insert scene here) scene written out, can (insert writer here) do it?' Or is it organized in advance who will write what? Maybe you've delegated writing a minor scene to non writers like Delta, as a cameo of sorts?

Funny. I figured Kenji's dialogue was written by a real crazy person in a home somewhere. They just asked him what he'd say in that situation and edit out the most explicit parts.

Most crazy folks aren't anywhere as entertaining as Kenji is.
I do belive I remember someone from the Dev team saying Kenji was written by a path writer, but I could be misremembering it. I t was a long time ago and I didn't pay it much mind back when I read it.

Crud wrote the beginning and I did 90% of the Kenji dialogue, cake boys.

Somehow... I'm not surprised.

I decide who writes what, usually they fall easily on the turfs of specific writers though so there is not much to decide.

Delta wrote parts of the rooftop scene with Kenji and Silentcook parts of the post-heartattack (at running track) discussion with Nurse. Crud wrote the initial drafts of first two scenes but I rewrote the first one and A22 the second one later on. The spirit is still the same though.

Well Aura you're doing a good job so far.

The rooftop scene was kinda funny although who decided to make Kenji so paranoid about a female conspiracy? Was this just a joke thought up to take the piss out of the majority of the characters being women?

The feminist conspiracy is no joke, man. Enjoy being the first against the wall when the revolution comes.
