'Merlin: The Game' to react to fan feedback from series five

By
Merlin: The Game's future content will be based on fan reactions of the show, it has been revealed.

Developer Bossa Studios explained that the first updates for the online game will be introduced when series five begins to air around the world.

The title will first launch when the show airs in the UK this month, and a new "season" of game content will arrive when it airs on Syfy in the US in January.

As episodes air, the studio will listen to fan reactions to characters and will be able to give them more of a presence in the game.

"One of the things we want to do is follow what the fans like and don't like about the show," creator-in-chief Imre Jele told Digital Spy.

"For example, if they like a character specifically, then we can make sure that that character shows up in the game.

"One of the things that I'm really passionate about, imagine a character shows up in an episode for 60 minutes, and that's it. You never heard about them before or afterward, but in the game, you can.

"What we want to do is listen to what the viewers of the show like and make sure that the character and the background of the characters [is in the game]. It's like it's an extra window into the universe."

He added: "That kind of back and forth - between the show, the novelisations, there is a theme park in Warwick Castle - all of these experiences, the cool thing is that we can link them up.

"We already have quite a lot of content there, then we're going to continually air the new content, new stories, new characters. The game just gets bigger and better every time."

> Merlin: The Game not just for fans of the show, says Bossa Studios

Announced earlier this year, Merlin: The Game is a co-operative action role-playing game that is played through Facebook.

A Nintendo DS game based on Merlin will be available later this month.

The official launch of Merlin: The Game will take place in the next few weeks to coincide with the premiere of season five of Merlin on BBC One.
