Video: Diggs Nightcrawler: Crafting a Film Noir Mystery in Wonderbook

50°
84w ago - Sony Senior Producer Nathan Baseley shared a video today showcasing the crafting of a Film Noir Mystery in Wonderbook for Diggs Nightcrawler.

To quote: Wonderbook: Diggs Nightcrawler hits shelves this Holiday!

The team at [Register or Login to view links] are a highly creative team and master story tellers. Little Bo Peep, the Itsy Bitsy Spider and Three Little Pigs together in a film noir mystery?

Definitely not your run of the mill game. We're pleased to lift the curtain on the development of Diggs Nightcrawler in this first video diary.

With the book as the starting point, the world, the characters, the story and the interactions were born (or as Humpty would say, "hatched").

Diggs is a detective bookworm who knows he's inside a book, whose world is made from books, and who travels throughout the course of the game to different sections of the library, meeting unique characters along the way.

Of course, being Wonderbook, this is no ordinary hardcover. It is your controller as you tilt, rotate and turn the pages to help Diggs get the bottom of Humpty's downfall.





We hope you enjoy the diary - we'll have more in the coming weeks. And...

Below are the details, as follows: While Book of Spells led off our Wonderbook announcement at E3 earlier this year, there are plenty more projects in the works for the forthcoming PlayStation 3 augmented reality platform, including Walking With Dinosaurs from the BBC, and an exciting partnership with Disney Interactive Studios.

Diggs: Nightcrawler is a little different, however - unlike Book of Spells and Dinosaurs, it's a brand new IP, promising quirky detective noir with style to spare.

Less than 24 hours after the game's new trailer debuted during the Sony press conference at gamescom last week, we sat down with Adam Volker from Oscar-winning animation studio turned game developer Moonbot to find out what it has in store.

"So, Diggs is a detective bookworm and he's really good at what he does," he explained.

"He works for the godfather of Library City, Humpty Dumpty. And you know his story - someone pushed him off the wall, someone bumped him off - and the cops think it's Diggs. So when you start the game he's framed for the murder of his old buddy. The story unfolds from there, with you attempting to clear Diggs' name...
