It’s apparently one of the biggest challenges the team faced while developing upcoming over-the-top shooter, Bulletstorm.
While speaking in the latest episode of Qore, Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski stated that most shooters take themselves “so seriously”, which was apparently one of the biggest challenges developer, People Can Fly, faced while working on the shooter.
“The biggest challenge with this game was getting to the point where we could develop an IP that was fun, something that was pulpy, but wasn’t really over the line [right], there’s a really fine line there, if you look at where the state of shooters are right now it’s very serious” he said.
He later added that you could “put a montage of all these military shooters together and you wouldn’t even recognize them”
“Bulletstorm’s just like screw that, let’s just put a big boot in peoples face, let’s have crazy lines of dialogue, over the top weapons, just put the fun back in the first person shooter. I think its hands down one of the most fun games I’ve played in years.”
Bulletstorm is out on February 22 for PS3, 360 and PC.
