Whether she begins with a couple of characters in mind and works the story around them, or the other way around, I'm not sure, and I suspect it might change from one game to another.
See? There's a chance that even Amanda doesn't even know when the next game is set yet!
I personally start with the basic overview first (e.g: "the story is about a princess who has a vampire servant" or something of the like), then flesh out the characters and story next, with a generic setting [e.g "it's set in a medieval fantasy world mashed with Victorian era!"]. Then the timelines and details on the setting comes later. And then I make notes or rant about my thought process somewhere, but mostly the stuff come off the top of my head. I'm not good with scripting stories. They just hinder me LOL.
From there, all the cutscenes and the complete game script is created (we're talking 400+ pages), and side quests are added.
Holy spam! Does this script look like DD or does it look different? Can't imagine just what those 400+ pages of stuff look like.
Every game was once a daydream. So let Aveyond start as a daydream for all!
And this means? Aveyond starts as a daydream for everybody? But.. in the end it's still the developers who decide what happens... And as far as the trends goes, we haven't seen an Aveyond be set that close to the previous one...
Oh Right. Amanda mentioning that Uma and Nox totally should be in the next one in an FB post. Insert wild mass guessing and a whole lot of stuff that fans wanted. Still, Uma and Nox's presence doesn't guarantee anyone else's presence beyond the immortal Galahad and Te'ijal and maybe the darklings (who knows how fast they age and how long do they last). And... people stuck in Demon Realm, coz who knows how many other relevant characters made their way in there? Like, I don't know, maybe some other Darkthrops before Mordred?
