Mirror's Edge is being written by Rhianna Pratchett

As per Ars Technica

This is going to be a quick post, no picture just want to get everyone's take on this very important detail.

I was very, very much hoping that the story for this game would borrow heavily from William Gibson books. I think that the cyber-punk world's he created would be perfect for this. Plus you got a female character and a "runner" style. I couldn't help thinking razor girl when I saw the title, the main character design, and the plot synopsis.

Rhianna is decended from god like writer talent, so that's a major plus. But based on her past two endeavors I feel like she is very much like her father in his early works. Average with some real talent peeping through, but overall nothing special. Just promising. Plus she seems intent on adopting his style of comedy that is surprisingly deep. This is very difficult to do, and his perfection of which is part of what has made him such an icon.

I am deeply disturbed by this. On the one hand I know it is being written by someone who should be equipped genetically and will definitely be taking this story very seriously, on the other I think she is inexperienced and hasn't found her style yet. She hasn't managed to get out of her dad's shadow so to speak.

For those that don't know she is Terry Pratchett's daughter and wrote Overlord and Heavenly Sword
