The latest dev diary for Hunted: The Demon's Forge
, titled Descent into Mystery, is out and it reveals some cool details about the story development. The basic plot takes inspiration from the ancient Mayan civilization's organized enslavement and sacrifice of surrounding peoples, but there is an undercurrent of addiction to a mysterious substance as well. Voice actress Lucy Lawless also goes into detail on her character and what she's trying to convey through her portrayal. I'm a lot more interested in this game now--most fantasy games borrow too heavily from Tolkien, or worse they just rip-off World of Warcraft, but I'm really liking the story and character motivations in this one.
