Visionary Realms and the Rob and Dan Show will stream game design sessions.
Visionary Realms and Twitch TV's Rob and Dan Show have paired up to air Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen game creation sessions, starting with a livestream at 4pm PT later today, Monday the 27th. Brad McQuaid will also hold a Reddit AMA on Wedneday, January 29 at 1pm PT.
The game designers from Visionary Realms, Inc. today announced a community outreach program involving live-streaming of game design, and an open discourse on the philosophies and design principles and plans for their upcoming MMO game, Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen.
Visionary Realms, Inc. has teamed up with the Rob and Dan Show on Twitch.tv to begin streaming live game creation sessions from the desktop of Vu Nguyen, Senior Artist for Pantheon while other team members from the project discuss the game over the stream's audio feed. The cast will be involving the audience by answering questions asked in the show's chat channel.
"This is a great way for our community to see the actual process in designing a game," said Salim Grant, Director of Development. "We've said from day one that we want the community involved every step of the way, and this is a chance to prove that we're committed to that."
In addition to the show, which will air its first broadcast later today, Chief Creative Officer Brad McQuaid is scheduled to appear on a Reddit Ask-Me-Anything later this week. "We're pretty open about what we're doing with Pantheon," said McQuaid. "An AMA gives me the opportunity to interact directly with our future players and address any questions they may have. They've already offered a lot of great suggestions and I can't wait to talk with them in more detail."
McQuaid's AMA is scheduled for 1:00 pm Pacific Standard Time Wednesday, January 29th. The game design and Q&A session through the Rob and Dan Show airs tonight, Monday January 27th at 4:00 pm PST on Twtich.tv at twitch.tv/therobanddanshow.
