inFamous Goes Hands-On

Nate Fox's Avatar + Posted by Nate Fox on Dec 19, 2008 // Game Director, Sucker Punch Productions

Hey there, Internet people, Nate Fox here from Sucker Punch Productions. For those of you who may not recognize the name, we’re the guys who made the Sly Cooper games. I have the pleasure of being Game Director on our new title inFamous. inFamous is an open world, superhero adventure where you (the player) get to experience first hand what it’s like to suddenly acquire superpowers. We’ve been working hard to get the game ready to finally show off and now that day has arrived! Well, actually it arrived early this week when a couple guys from IGN showed up for inFamous’ first hands-on demo.

Check out what IGN thought of their hands-on experience:

It was fun to watch the journalist as he climbed to the top of a building, spotted a thug down on street level, then lept towards his head, building up an electrical charge all the way down.

The impact was beautiful, cars and people went flying.

Looks great. I love platforming in games such as Assassin’s Creed and Uncharted, and now we get to use an electrically charged bad*** to do it.

I’ll be keeping an eye on this game for sure.

just sayin’, throwin’ this studio money to make sure they stay afloat and us PS3 owners either get TimeSplitters 4 exclusively OR with exclusive something out of it…..that is all I am saying…..hehe they’d make a great internal studio plz?!?!

ATTENTION SUCKER PUNCH : please DON’T release a demo or beta of this game. Demos and betas don’t work well for all game genres, and I get the impression it would do more harm than good for the overall expectations the fans will have for this game. Work hard on it and keep the surprise factor on your side. And don’t you dare releasing this game without MARKETING THE HELL OUT OF IT first!

A Sly Cooper cameo in this game would be great, just have him walk by. Why don’t developers make things like this happen, would add another layer of fun looking out for him.

@57- There’s no reason for them to release a beta if there is no multiplayer gameplay. :|

And call me crazy but I’m guessing this game will get a demo. ;)

Nate, ignore themule. Yes, absolutely, 100%, oh hell yeah I want a demo of this game, but not because I need to “try before I buy.” I already KNOW I’m buying it. I’d just like a taste of things to come.

@ enigma – what’s wrong with the running animation? you do know that the game is going for a comic book feel right?

cheers,

@64

I didn’t know comic book heroes run like they have underwear that’s 2 sizes too small… It just looks really awkward (his legs are too far apart at the knees) and his hands are too robotic… its like he’s half sprinting, half squatting

i agree with the dude who was talking about you shouldn’t die when your in water. that should be another weakness that he have.if he do get wet he just cant use his powers and if a player try either nothing happen or he eletricute themselves and die. maybe make an enemy who have water for power. that way both of Cole and the enemy have each other weakness
