Come chat with Tyranny director Brian Heins today at 3PM EST

December 2, 2016 | By Bryant Francis

In case you missed it, Tyranny has turned out to be one of the most interesting games this year in terms of how player choice interacts with morality in decision-making. With no clear path to being “good” or “evil,” players are given far more opportunity to react to the demands of characters around them, and shape a path forged on relationships far more than an obvious moral grounding. 

A few days ago, we took a look at how the game’s choice system is able to do this, and today at 3PM EST, we’re going to talk to game director Brian Heins about the morality system, and why Obsidian decided to make an RPG around the fantasy of playing the villain. 

Be sure to tune in to ask questions, and subscribe to our Twitch channel for more regular developer interviews and gameplay commentary.
