Uncharted 3

 

We are honored to be working with Naughty Dog Studios on behind the scenes material for the latest entry in the Uncharted series.  Naughty Dog is known for creating the hit franchises "Jak and Daxter" and "Crash Bandicoot".  Considered one of the most prestigious developers in the world, Naughty Dog broke new ground on the PS3 with the stunningly cinematic "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune".  Released in 2009 to universal acclaim and capturing the title of "Game of the Year", "Uncharted 2: Among Thieves" was an incredible success for the studio, building upon the innovations of it's predecessor in every way.


Initial work on the sequel began shortly after the release, and in 2010 2 Player Productions was contacted for potential behind the scenes coverage of the development process.  Since the positive experience of working on the "Infamous" developer documentary, 2 Player Productions had been looking for the right opportunity to become involved with another Sony game.  With Uncharted 3's development cycle underway, the timing was right to capture early stages of the new game's creation.

In-depth interview with 2 Player Productions on the offical Naughty Dog Blog

Released in conjunction with the game's official announcement after the 2010 Spike TV awards, part one of the documentary focuses on pre-production aspects of the announce trailer and Naughty Dog's mounting internal pressure to meet expectations set by "Uncharted 2." The piece shows the crew building the teaser trailer from bare-bone mockups at the studio and motion capture and voice over sessions featuring the principal characters.  Members of the studio express their aspirations for the new title and discuss the pressures of being one of the worlds most respected studios.

Part two to premier online in the first quarter of 2011... it's been done but it's being held up by red tape :(  No word on when part 2 will surface.
