GDC Wrap-up (Part 2) – The Naughty Dog Sessions

Evan Wells's Avatar Posted by President, Naughty Dog


I just wanted to drop a quick note to anybody out there who is interested in the talks that Naughty Dog gave at the 2008 Game Developers Conference. We just posted the slides to all 8 sessions on our website. You can find them here.

GDC Naughty Dog Slide

They cover a wide range of topics including lighting, animation, modeling, tools and a project post-mortem. So for everybody who couldn’t make it to the sessions, or if you’re just interested in the development of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, enjoy.

I bought a total of over 80 games last year for the PSP, PS3, Wii, DS, and the 360. This game was by far my favorite. :)

Uncharted is undoubtedly the best PS3 game available now, the community keeps saying so. Kudos again for a fine job. What should we expect from Naughty Dog next?

Uncharted is one of the best games i’ve played this generation.

I’m on my third time through because you people at naughty dog made it cheat proof.

Apparently you cant change the difficulty mid game, then change it back to hard right before you beat it… lol.

I’ve found 46 treasures, on my own. I know a ton of people that use the guide, its really interesting to see all of the little places the team h id them.

Seriously though, good job on this title. It for me has done what the Davy Jones CGI did for pirates. Made you really respect the team for pulling off such amazing imagery.

Sound design is amazing as well. Give everyone a rasie.

Everyone at Naughty Dog should be extremely proud of Uncharted. I think it is their best work ever and definitely one of the best games of 2007. Hopefully we don’t have to wait too long for their next game.
