Random House to write for video games
« on: March 01, 2010, 11:23:46 PM »
This is interesting. Sounds like they are going to develop stories for video games. It doesn't sound like they are pitching the books they publish since they don't own the rights to the books themselves. Sounds like they will contract authors to do this.

I don't know if they will get many takers... why pay random house for an idea? They can get those themselves. It is the technical details more than anything else that determines how well a game does.

this sounded interesting so i am posting it. There is a 30 second commercial first.
