12w ago - The Mark of Kri Executive Producer Jonathan Beard revealed making The Mark of Kri today, which is coming to PSN this Tuesday.
To quote: Editor's Note: Beloved PS2 Classic The Mark of Kri will be available on PS3 via PlayStation Store next Tuesday, so we reached out to the game's Executive Producer, Jonathan Beard, to ask for some stories and insights from its development.
He responded in kind, with one of the most detailed write-ups in PlayStation.Blog history, and a bevy of heretofore unseen concept art. Enjoy.
In the early 2000′s, I had taken over the role of studio director at SCEA San Diego, and moved from Foster City with some key members of the Blasto team. Tim Neveu who was the lead artist on Blasto was given the chance to produce his first game.
Tim and I had known each other for a while and shared a lot of the same interests. We often discussed classic games and were alligned on the kind of game we wanted to make - a "fantasy" game - big guy and a sword, maybe an axe.
