Hippocratic Game Design

    • Try to view the game industry's never-ending parade of dragons, robots and space marines from an outsider's perspective, and it's easy to see why many developers are growing tired of looking inward for inspiration. At first glance, BioWare seems to embody this gripe. Browse their back catalogue of games, and you'll immediately be struck by their close involvement with the Star Wars and Dungeons & Dragons universes - epicenters for the hardcore gaming fanaticism that have been a stumbling block for the videogame industry as it strives for mainstream cultural acceptance. Yet it was with these intellectual properties that BioWare made their name as a developer, breathing new life into them and creating something uniquely their own.

Making a game larger than the sum of its intellectual property is no simple feat. But BioWare founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk are well acquainted with looking at things from a broad perspective. Before BioWare became a respected game developer, Zeschuk and Muzyka were practicing medical doctors. It's a background that played a major role in the development of BioWare's uniquely empathetic attitude towards game design.
