Mad Max director: Games no longer “poor cousin” to film

Mad Max director George Miller has told MTV that, “Games were the poor cousin to feature films when it came to storytelling but I think it’s flipping. Games allow you be much more like a novelist.”

He went on to describe the in-the-works Mad Max title as a “hybrid game”.

“I’m curious how much you can engage with the characters through the game-play,” said Miller. “It’s the opportunity to make a novel.”

Miller and God of War II’s Cory Barlog are still working on the design and script for the game, so don’t expect it until two more years at least.
