Shivers BoardGame hires LucasArts alums

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The game Shivers, showcasing Bill Tiller's artwork has picked up some additional LucasArts alumni.

 

  • Larry Ahern Larry is a former LucasArts adventure game designer/writer/artist currently working in the California theme park industry. He is part of the creative vision behind such beloved titles as Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, and The Curse of Monkey Island. For The Shivers, he'll be writing some of the episodes included in the Core game, bringing his unique blend of cleverness and humor to our pop-up adventure! 
  • Jared Sorensen Considered to be one of the founding fathers of indie roleplaying, Jared started publishing tabletop RPGs back in the '90s (he's also another LucasArts alumni) . In 2003, he created Action Castle, the first-ever Parsely game that brings the intrigue of '80s-style text based adventures onto tabletops around the world. For The Shivers, Jared will be overseeing and editing all of our 16 initial episodes to ensure they flow logically and intuitively with minimal continuity problems.

Clarifying boardgame

I thought this was a sequel to Sierra's Shivers horror series, and was disappointed that it was not.

 

I'm a little bit of a board game geek too though, so I'll be interested to see what comes from this.

Sorry Jenni. I was unaware of a Sierra title with the same name. I've updated the thread title to hopefully better clarify. But now I want to see what kind of boardgame you can come up with based on the Sierra Shivers horror title. :)

No problem, I'm probably the only hardcore Sierra fan around these parts. 

 

And, yeah - A Sierra Shivers board game could actually be a pretty interesting thing. 😛
