Killzone developer influenced by Half-life, Uncharted

Wednesday, 16th February 2011 23:13 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Killzone creator Hermen Hulst has said Guerilla is strongly influenced by the storytelling of Half-Life and Uncharted, with the latter setting “a new bar”.

“In terms of the most influential games for us at Guerrilla, the first one has to be Half-Life,” Hulst told Official PlayStation Magazine.

“Just because of the sheer quality of the implementation of the first-person experience, and also the variety in there and the storytelling.

Hulst listed the Uncharted series as a second source of inspiration, heaping praise on Naughty Dog.

“Those guys set a new bar for character development and storytelling, and it’s something we all have to try and match,” he said.

Thanks, CVG.

    ^ Actually, the sky can have different colours according to the weather conditions and time of day. Also, not all grass is “green”. Blades of grass can have various shades of green; sometimes, you could even say they’re yellow.
