Otherland Making-of Part 4 – Best-selling author Tad Williams explains the new world of Five Isle

Hamburg, August 01, 2012 – gamigo and developer RealU are using the latest installment of their Otherland Making-of clips to present a new world simulation: Five Isle is a world comprised of five floating islands, each of which represents one of the five Chinese elements (fire, water, earth, wood, metal).

Ted Williams, author of the Otherland saga, is also featured on camera for the first time. Together with the developers of the heavy-hitting project, he explains the concepts behind the five-part world and the role of the player in unravelling the mysteries. Five Isle once was one island that combined the five Chinese elements in harmony. Gamers will learn over the course of their adventures how the island came to be sundered into five parts. The world was created especially for the Otherland MMO and is not a component in the best-selling novels.

The 'Making of' episode is available on YouTube.
