Fantasy RPG’s are a rare breed these days. There are a few of note such as: Fable, Dragon Age and Oblivion. However, more and more developers seem to be taking the shooter route, leaving the once celebrated world of swords and sorcery behind.
One developer, inXile Entertainment, not only plans to change all this, but is hoping to merge the action of the latest and greatest shooters with what works well in the fantasy genre.
During the Eurogamer Expo, we spoke with inXile’s Maxx Kaufman about the studio’s latest title, Hunted: The Demon’s Forge, and how the studio hopes the game will change the way we look at the fantasy genre forever.
