The Death Of A Game Character?
A dimly lit alley.
The stench of sewers creep from manholes and a flickering streetlamp sets the appropriate mood.

A lifeless body provides the newly placed decoration. A decoration surely capable of setting the media world ablaze. All it takes is the first person to walk by and notice this empty, once filled with absolute joy, defunct vessel and headlines will be over flown by chaos.
Sirens approach and not before long the once dimly lit alley is enlightened by the greeting of constant flickering lights provided by the police vans engulfing the area.
Speech and shouts can be heard, but not one understandable word can be distinguished through the chaotic air. A small group of forensic workers or perhaps a detective alongside his trusted companion enters the scene. Not one word being uttered, but everything understood.
What a wonderful way to take lunch on your first day of the week. Mmmmm…
Mondays are grim, that’s the truth.
I’ve pondered over the fact that the gaming industry can take a break and we’re left behind with empty levels and lifeless consoles, but what about a certain game or character being murdered?
When hopping about the internet you often hear the words: “This installment killed the franchise” or “The new direction started digging a shallow grave for the series”. While these accusations often turn out to be mere opinion; think about what would actually happen if a beloved character gets killed for real?
Like I said, not the most optimistic thought on a Monday afternoon while you’re devouring a sandwich and / or cup of coffee.
Characters are 3D models with textures and no heartbeat in sight. We really do want some characters to be real and have a chat about life while sipping on some expensive drink, but what if a murder takes place or an accident with one these beloved characters being the victim?

I’d be devastated. I mean, I fell from that building while controlling the charismatic bloke and now what?
What do you think will happen if something like this really took place within the industry? A real death of a character.
