Creating Authentic Universes in Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse

97w ago - Activision Lead Producer Andy Owen has outlined what it takes to create authentic universes in Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse today.

To quote: Making a licensed game is hard. Making a good licensed game is hard.

As huge [Register or Login to view links] fans, when the opportunity came to make a game based on the hilarious TV show, with [Register or Login to view links] at the helm, it was impossible to pass up.

But there was one giant hurdle we had to get over in order to make a good Family Guy game - we don't work at Fuzzy Door, Seth MacFarlane's production company, and we aren't involved in any way with the Family Guy TV show.

And it wouldn't matter how much effort we put into the graphics, or the level design, or the action. If it didn't feel like Family Guy - if it wasn't funny, or if Stewie shouted "Blast!" and it was clear we'd just hired some actor to do a mediocre Stewie impression - fans would hate it. WE would hate it.

We knew that if we were going to do this, we had to do it right. Everything from the script to the presentation to the way it will make you feel playing on your couch at home had to feel like Seth MacFarlane took a coding class and made it himself.

If we wanted to create a...

The violent alien race from the original game has returned, with a full invasion force bent on nothing less than the total annihilation of mankind. In New York, the invaders stalk the streets and a nightmare plague strikes down the city's inhabitants.

The city's infrastructure is in ruins, while its streets and skyline are smashed and in flaming ruin. This is New York City like you've never seen it before.

97w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has scouted locations today including Boston, New York, and the Frontier in Assassin's Creed III for PS3.

To quote: Part of Assassin's Creed III's ample appeal lies in its fastidious recreation of Revolutionary War-era America, a time of great uncertainty and even greater promise.

Developer [Register or Login to view links] has gone to considerable lengths to accurately recreate historic locations across the U.S. Eastern Seaboard, referring to era maps and historians in order to bolster the game's authenticity.

We recently spoke with lead designer Steve Masters and creative director Alex Hutchinson to learn more about the game's slavish attention to detail in recreating late 18th century colonial America. Enjoy!

"In Boston, you'll see a lot of places you could see today, from the old statehouse to Fenway Market to a pub called the [Register or Login to view links]. Using maps from the era, we recreated Boston at a 1:3 scale, including a lot of the surrounding countryside with towns like Lexington and Concord."
