Previously on Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction: The Developer Diaries, Brian Hastings discussed what Insomniac hoped to accomplish with the game’s story. Today’s dev video diary features TJ Fixman, who is the head writer at Insomniac. TJ does what any good writer does; he takes a rough concept or idea and breathes life into it via words. Which, in the case of the Ratchet & Clank games, occasionally means channeling his inner Qwark to add a little humor to the mix.
TJ discusses the challenges of writing for a video game, where he’d like the series to go in the future, and songs about pirate booty.
