Fat Princess Dev Diary: Ah, For the Love of Cake

Deborah Mars's Avatar + Posted by Deborah Mars on May 19, 2009 // Managing Producer, SCEA Santa Monica Studio

Hey Everyone,

This is Deb Mars, Managing Producer at SCEA Santa Monica Studio. Some of you may know me from spreading all that PixelJunk love around this here blog space. But I’m here now to introduce you to a brand new PSN title that we’re pleased as punch…well, really…pleased as cake to talk about Fat Princess.

Some of you may have seen this video already in the Theater in HOME between May 7 and May 14. There was a small mention of it in this post about HOME updates. We put up the video in HOME first as an exclusive for you eager souls looking to get a bigger, better, badder glimpse of our dear Fat Princess in all its glory.

The video is an in-depth look at the creation and inspiration behind Fat Princess, told through interviews with Craig Leigh from developer Titan Studios, and little ‘ole me and Matt Morton. We talk about how the concept for the game came about, the distinctive and charming art style, and loads more including some of the hilarious and irreverent stuff you’ll find in the game.

The video is coming to the PlayStation Store this Thursday in all its big, fat, sweet, awesome HD glory for you to download and watch over and over.

Look for more information about Fat Princess in the coming weeks. We’ll be at E3 showing off the game, so stay tuned for more info soon!

Just putting this out there, after the game is released is there any chance you’d put out some sort of mapmaker or mod function? This game has serious mod potential.

    Yeah, we love our XMB custom soundtracks, too! It\’s a great idea, and something that we\’re definitely going to investigate further.

I cannot wait to play this game. By any chance, does it have offline splitscreen mode like Calling All Cars… this also seems to work as a party game, even if the number of players would be 4. Though 2-4 playing online from the same system would be nice as well.

    Thanks for your comments, and nice to hear you\’re excited for the game. Unfortunately, no splitscreen mode at this time. Bummer, yes, but we may consider this for the future.

I love the game. It has a unique feel to it.

Will the beta testing end this week or will it continue?

Please tell TITAN to add custom soundtrack though.

Never thought I’d see this game as a violent game, but now it just looks a lot more interesting now like it’s a war/battleground.

Purchase!

+ Wtfman90 on May 19th, 2009 at 9:25 am said:

+ emjayx on May 19th, 2009 at 9:33 am said:

one HUGE question. Will your teammates be able to help you carry the flag? So that a fat princess can be retrieved as fast as possible depending on the number of people who are helping you carry her.

It’s definitely more teamwork-y

    + Deborah Mars on May 19th, 2009 at 3:09 pm said:

    Absolutely…it\’s all about teamwork. You can work together to join up and carry the princess, and you\’ll move faster. This is indicated in-game with a cute little pink heart icon to show that you\’re \”linked up\” with others when carrying the princess.

as much as i wanted this game… after taking part in the beta i will have to pass. It bored me to tears

+ Duseldorf on May 19th, 2009 at 9:56 am said:

This game is so awesome. It has been on the top of my radar for a long time, can’t wait custom soundtracks would be great with this as well.

+ dsigns209 on May 19th, 2009 at 9:57 am said:

Can we get a new level in the beta? Those other levels looked great.

    We have a ton of awesome fun maps, in several different types of environments…but they won\’t be available in the Beta. You\’ll just have to hold out until the full game releases this Summer.

I kind of wish you could pre-pay for PSN games. I want to make sure I get this on the first day.

In the beta and loving it.., anxious to try some more maps though.

I cannot wait for this game. I will be downloading this one for sure. :)

+ Bloody_Marcel on May 19th, 2009 at 10:22 am said:

Party System please. Being able to easily play with friends on your same side is paramount for such tactical, classes based games. Otherwise it’s gonna be chaos.

    + Deborah Mars on May 19th, 2009 at 3:16 pm said:

    We have an option to Play With Friends and allow players to switch teams before the game starts, so you can definitely get all your buddies together and duke it out on the playing field.

Release date maybe? And can we please get the devs to come into the BETA forum

I’m definitely looking forward to this game. I love games with support classes in them.

+ Direxnipe on May 19th, 2009 at 11:01 am said:

i hope the finished game doesn’t have all the screen tearing the video and i think the beta had. it will really ruin the experience. personally i’d rather have it delayed to fix that issue (if its there) than not. just putting it out there


32

+ Direxnipe on May 19th, 2009 at 11:04 am said:

oh, but other than that the game is amazing :) i cant wait to get it

+ NeoHumpty on May 19th, 2009 at 11:21 am said:

Gotta speak with the rest of the people. I really want to play my own music through XMB while I play. Upgraded my harddrive and have over 10,000 songs saved on there, but most games don’t think to allow you to use them. PLEASE ADD IT!

The first time I heard about Fat Princess was in an article online stating some groups were against it and its name. After SONY pretty much gave those groups the finger…I was sold. Day 1 Buy

i thought the cake was a lie ;) ,but i guess it is true and chicks love cake huh?
i can hardly wait to get my hands on this game. i wonder how people got into the beta because this would have been one game i would have loved to get into the beta through like qore or something. I WANT THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!


44

+ PrairieGhost on May 19th, 2009 at 12:50 pm said:

You know what would of made this game better? If the two team castles were made out of the cake and the more you feed the princess the less defensive your castle is. Basically it would be opened for the other team to get inside. Maybe you guys could make this a game type?


45

+ IrishHater on May 19th, 2009 at 1:13 pm said:

This will be a day 1 buy for me, i have not done any day 1 buys on PSN yet, so Titan should be happy about the game they have made !!


46

+ Im33PercentGod on May 19th, 2009 at 1:25 pm said:

How can I try the beta out and PLEASE make it split screen co-op + online multiplayer, that would be so dope.

This game reminds me of team buddies to some degree and that makes me very happy.
