The BioWare veteran – who left the role-playing game studio three years ago – has revealed details of his next big project with Summerfall Studios, which also features former Obsidian and Beamdog developer Liam Esler as the company’s managin director.
‘Chorus’ is said to be a musical, illustrated adventure game with a character-driven narrative, with the studio looking to crowdfunding platform Fig to fund the title.
Gaider told GameSpot:
“For Summerfall’s first game, Liam and I felt that we wanted to do something a little different.
“I’ve personally wanted to work on a musical ever since I was lead writer on ‘Dragon Age’ back at BioWare, and I used to half-jokingly suggest to my bosses that a musical DLC would be a delightful break from the norm.
“We never did that, of course, but the idea stuck with me… and when I suggested to Liam that it could be our ‘something a little different,’ he jumped on the idea, and everything started falling into place right afterwards.”
The game – which takes inspiration from the musical ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ episode ‘Once More With Feeling’ – follows lead character Grace on an epic adventure.
The description reads:
“In ‘Chorus’, we follow Grace’s story as she finds herself thrust into a high-stakes world of weary gods and fantastical creatures after her new bandmate dies bleeding in her apartment – but not before granting Grace the divine power of song.
“When the gods accuse her of murdering Calliope, the ‘fair-voiced’ muse, Grace must discover the truth… before the gods take her life in exchange.”
