Bioware’s Drew Karpyshyn writing for Anthem.

And if Bioware is smart, they’ll do what I originally wrote in the title and make Drew Karpyshyn lead writer for Anthem.  Why? Because these are his writing credits:

  • Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn
  • Baldur’s Gate II: Throne of Bhaal
  • Neverwinter Nights
  • Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark
  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
  • Jade Empire
  • Mass Effect
  • Mass Effect 2
  • Star Wars: The Old Republic

Dude was lead on KOTOR and ME 1/2, which is sufficient unto the day thereof, methinks.  I mean. KOTOR. Mass Effect. And I hear that at least a few people kind of liked Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights, too.  This is a solid writer’s CV for the new project. Bioware’s made some tactical errors lately.  This ain’t one of them.

One thought on “Bioware’s Drew Karpyshyn writing for Anthem.”

  1. Kinda funny how there’s a title conspicuously absent from that list.

    And how that title *cough*ME3*cough* had a rather spectacular fan backlash.

    The original NWN storyline was actually kind of weak, imo. But everything else on that list was pretty good.
