It is my goal to write a book that can transcend the form of a novel and become successful in other media as well. What I mean to say is: I want a book that can inspire a successful movie as well as games, toys, artwork, etc.
So, this page is to identify ideas that are necessary to transform the story into other media. Basically, I aim to create a cultural phenomenon akin to Star Wars.
I will focus on what elements would make a great film as well as well as what to include to make it successful in multiple kinds of games (FPS, RPG, RTS, action-adventure).
First, I will examine some big fantasy/sci-fi hits and why they were successful (or not) in certain media.
Why does Star Wars make for a great RPG (Knights of the Old Republic)?
