Neverwinter Nights: EE - Fans help Devs

PC Gamer reports that Beamdog listens to the Neverwinter Nights community while rebuilding the Enhanced Edition:

How devs and fans are coming together to rebuild Neverwinter Nights

Neverwinter Nights was always about the community, and now they're helping bring it back to life.


"Neverwinter Nights is all about the community," Oster says. "We went to the community even before we had the license." Oster looked for active leaders, going as far as to hand out non-disclosure agreements and extending employment offers. Those superfans turned consultants became known as the Advisory Council.

It takes a village
"I think this approach of bringing on community members and seeking feedback was exemplary," says Bernhard 'Niv' Stockner. "I wish more game studios would do that for EEs, sequels and remasters. Especially with NWN having built up a solid, opinionated community, doing it this way was absolutely necessary."
