MMOPRG.com came back from GDC with a preview of Fallen Earth, and few questions answered by the MMO's Lead Designer, Lee Hammock:
Lee [Hammock] went on to tell me how they've gone over the initial storyline and they've been working to improve the flow of information to the players, especially in the tutorial and early game. At AGDC I learned that everyone in Fallen Earth is a clone, made from DNA stored in a project similar to the one going on in Svalbard, Norway, except with human DNA instead of grain and rice. Every time you die in Fallen Earth you are re-cloned but no one knows why, and in the last incarnation of the story, players didn't get much in the way of hints until much later in the game. Now, Lee says that they have revamped the entire tutorial section. At one point you get to watch a propaganda piece on the cloning process which doesn't give you all of the answers, but is still a meatier appetizer than just saying "Oh yeah, and you're a Clone."
