Deep Silver and Piranha Bytes today released the second episode of the six part making-of series that will become available over the course of the next months. This time, the developers from Piranha Bytes talk about the different factions in Risen 2: Dark Waters, like the Inquisition and what the disappearance of magic from the world has meant for them, the Natives in their natural habitat, the jungle, and their suppression as slaves in this world, the Pirates who play a central role in the story of Risen 2, and finally, the Gnomes and their enhanced role in Risen 2. Risen 2 is slated for an April 2012 release!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
