Bioshock Director Ken Levine Working on ‘Interactive’ Twilight Zone Project
After making some of the most beloved games of the last generation, many wondered what Ken Levine’s next project would be. While he has been hard at work on a currently-unannounced game with Take Two Interactive, Levine also recently revealed that he is working on an interactive game-flim hybrid based on “The Twilight Zone.”
Levine told Wired the following about his influence and interest:
“Playing my games, you can probably tell Twilight Zone is something I grew up with. They speak to a larger truth. They’re morality plays, fables, and often they’re about a character who is going through an experience that’s central to their life but also speaks to a larger part of the human condition. I don’t think [Rod] Serling, at the beginning, set out to be a science-fiction writer. But he found that this is a great medium to do metaphor.”
As far as the game itself goes, Levine sees interactivity as a spectrum and wants to create something that will explore the spaces between movies and games. The project will be mad in collaboration with Interlude, including Sam Barlow, creator of Her Story.
No more details on the game were given at this time.
