Mannerisms and body language
« on: November 17, 2014, 01:17:29 PM »
i find psychological profile descriptions very fascinating in this game. were they based on any particular study or book? like when it says that a librarian with tense posture is controlling and stuff like that

Hi Barbie, glad to hear you're enjoying reading these little details that work into the game's story! The psychological descriptions are original creations from Jane Jensen herself which goes to show you the dedication and attention to detail for each character in Moebius. Oh and little known fact, Jane Jensen minored in Psychology which I'm sure helped in the charaction creation process.  ;D

Hi as well and welcome, Barbie!

There wasn't a specific book or resource, but for the analysis we did go with traits or quirks that would support the characterizations we wanted, like the one you mentioned. Our cinematic artists are great at translating these things into the animations they choose for the dialogues as well, to carry those traits even further. :)
