Sierra Spring Break 08: Prototype plot inspired by Old Boy
Speaking to videogaming247 at the Sierra Spring Break 08 in Mallorca last week, Radical Entertainment marketing director Chris Hansell said that Prototype has been heavily influenced by the story of classic Korean movie, Old Boy.
“There are a huge number of influences,” he said. “The guys who make this game love everything.
“Especially Old Boy where the main the main character does very bad things. But you see that really bad things that have happened to him before, so you have a kind of empathy with that character. So even though it’s a dark story, there’s a context as to why he’s doing these terrible things.”
All sounds very dark and broody, doesn’t it?
Mega-violent super-mutant free-roamer Prototype is out on 360 and PS3 in the fourth quarter.
