UK-based writer and story designer of such titles as Overlord, Mirror’s Edge and Heavenly Sword, Rhianna Pratchett has announced that her professional website has gone live. The site will serve as a platform for Pratchett’s writing and narrative design services.
“After over a decade in the industry, I thought that it was about time that I had a little corner of the internet to call my own,” says Pratchett. “An online home where I could highlight the projects and teams that I’ve been lucky enough to work with.”
Pratchett most recently won the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain Best Videogame Script award for Overlord. She has worked with major video game companies, including Sony, EA, Sega, Codemasters and DC Comics.
With the console versions out of the way, it appears DICE is pimping up the upcoming release of the PC version of Mirror’s Edge with support for PhysX’s physics engine, noting that NVIDIA 8-series and above cards will offer enhanced physics support for the game.
In fact, to show off the power of the PC, they released a trailer showcasing PhysX effects below. The game is due out on PC in January 2009.
