Obviously as it spreads more, the risk is greater, but it isn't some "terror alert level" they're raising, it's the phase in the progression of the outbreak that they're tracking.

Submission + - How FPS storylines are written (bit-tech.net)

Might E. Mouse writes: "Cynics might say "Who needs a storyline for an FPS game?" and if we're talking Quake or Doom then fair enough. But to brand the entire genre as lacking in story is to condem gems like [i]Half-Life 2[/i]. So what goes into writing a really compelling storyline for an FPS game then? bit-tech has a great article exploring this topic with the likes of Martin Lancaster, writer / designer for Crysis, Rob Yescombe, writer of Haze and more. A must read for anyone interested in getting into game design / writing."
