The City 17 Times is a weekly newspaper produced for the citizens of City 17. It is written from the perspective of real people from within the game. The style will be a serious local newspaper, with a hint of “over-the-topness” and a touch of cliché, so don’t believe everything you read!
The idea has been shamelessly stolen from the First Person Observer, a site ” dedicated to providing you with non-stop, around-the-clock coverage of breaking news from inside the games you play and love.”
First Person Observer was created by Christopher Livingston, he of Concerned: The Half-Life and Death of Gordon Frohman and First Person Shouter.
The articles have their own category, so finding back issues is easy.
I will try and post one story per week, usually around Wednesday. If you have story ideas please email me.
