Status update: Major changes (part 2) (also, meet us at Assembly Summer 2011)
Effects on storyline
The biggest change to the old plans is the unification of character storylines. Rather than three separate stories taking place isolated from the others as we originally planned, we're now crafting the character storylines into one branching tree in which all major (and several minor) decisions have an effect on the other characters' story progression. This was in fact something we opted not to do because things tend to get complex towards the end with so many factors, but with episodic development we'll have more time and resources to handle all the possible endgame branches.
We're aiming for a movie/novel -style handling of several perspectives, each characters' decisions having an effect on the others' storylines and where the characters' timelines are not in complete sync all of the time - Insider starts his story several days before the Unseen, Unseen a day or two before Soldier. Each episode will feature a piece of the story that alternates between the viewpoints of each of the characters. Since decisions made in earlier episodes also have a major influence on the following ones, so you may want to try out different paths while waiting for the next episode to come out. :)
