Wccftech asked Aarynn Flynn about the survival game Nightingale:

Nightingale Q&A – Aaryn Flynn Talks About the Survival Game’s Future on the Eve of the Early Access Debut


It's been a long road for the team founded by BioWare veteran and former General Manager Aaryn Flynn. After more than fifteen years and credits on masterpieces such as Baldur's Gate II, Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire, Dragon Age: Origins, and the first two Mass Effect installments, Flynn left in 2017 and joined Improbable in September 2018. A few months later, it was announced that he would lead Improbable's internal studio, back when the company was still trying to promote its SpatialOS technology through game development.


You've confirmed there are two Fae Courts, Summer and Winter. According to traditional Fae lore, they are eternally locked in a power struggle, each faction trying to overcome the other. Is that also true in Nightingale? Will Summer and Winter ask players to help their faction against the other?

It’s great that you picked up on that. That’s certainly in the background of Nightingale’s world and story, but not something we’re exploring immediately when we launch into Early Access. We want to lay the breadcrumbs of where the story will go as we look to expand the narrative over the next year, heading into updates and, ultimately, 1.0. The Fae play a big part of that both in their relationships with humanity and each other. There’s a deep well of inspiration to draw from there, and we want players who engage with the narrative to be rewarded as the story continues to unfold.
