One of the biggest pro’s of the original Overlord game was it’s script: humorous, witty, good. We’re happy to announce you that Overlord II’s script will be done by the same person, Rhianna Pratchett, who will continue her role as writer and narrative designer for the delightfully despotic series.

Pratchett was nominated for Best Videogame Script for her work on the original Overlord game in the Writers’ Guild Awards 2008 and she will probably want to grab the prize with the next iteration of the twisted adventure.

“It’s a real pleasure to be back in the evil writing seat and taking the Overlord and the Minions to new lands and new adventures for the 2009 titles,” said Rhianna Pratchett.

We’ll be able to see the results of her work sometime in 2009 when all gaming platforms will be infested by minions: Overlord II will be the title of the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC game, Overlord Dark Legend for the Wii version and Overlord Minions for Nintendo DS. It’s a “take your pick” kind of thing.
