The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay - Developer's Cut Summary
You play a role of musculature psychotic guy called Riddick, which is the actual representation of Vin Diesel from the movie, with a muscle or two more.
Actor Vin Diesel, most notably known as Pitch Black's Riddick or Fast & Furious' Dominic Toretto, has revealed Swedish developer Tigon Studios has pulled itself back together to "create the third game."
The Chronicles of Riddick is that 'third game'. The initial game was made because they had "so much more story" to tell, but couldn't spend tens of millions to flesh it out.
Producer Ian Stevens of Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay reveals, startlingly, that the much lauded action game almost become a "Devil May Cry rip-off." Didn't cave to pressure.
The team ignored the dissenters and pushed ahead, releasing an Xbox hit with an 89 metacritic score. It could have "blown up in our face" and led to them all being fired.
Syndicate developer Starbreeze Studios says designing video games, at least for them, has moved on from choosing a genre and then filling in the blanks from there - it's the experience.
It\'s "what kind of game" they want to make which decide "whatever elements" feature in it. Syndicate has to have "top-notch shooting" but doesn't need to compete.
