Video Game News have posted a rather short interview with Sierra's Executive Producer Ken Embrey about thier upcoming action adventure game, The Hobbit. Heres a snip:
What audience is The Hobbit geared towards?
Since Mr. Tolkien originally wrote the novel for his children, we're targeting the game at the same younger audience - kids about eight to sixteen years old. This said, we've put enough combat and exploration elements into the game to challenge gamers, and Tolkien fans, of all ages.
