Doyle discusses Hogwarts, Rowling in new LEGO Potter interview
VideoGamer.com has a new interview online with LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 producer Loz Doyle.
On if gamers will get lost in Hogwarts:
“In year one, while the whole of Hogwarts does exist, you can't access it. We lock off doors, areas, you can't go outside right at the beginning. You start in the common room, and even though it feels like you're in Hogwarts – you see the main hall and you're like, oh this is huge – you can't go in very many places.”
On just how big Hogwarts is:
“It is big, but what we've done is, even though it feels like Hogwarts, we haven't just recreated Hogwarts exactly as it is in the films. Whereas in a film they can have a location over here, location over here, then they just edit and they arrive at the place, in a game you've actually got to travel. So we've made it look like Hogwarts and feel like Hogwarts, but we've designed it around being able to get around and get to the places you want to go more easily. “
