When Namco announced Ninja Theory’s Enslaved: Odyssey to the West in September 2009, folks were surprised to learn the tactical action-adventure game with its post-apocalyptic setting was based upon the ancient Chinese novel Journey to the West, and the subsequent 80s television series.
Centered on the complex relationship between main characters Monkey and Trip, players use a mix of combat, strategy and environmental mechanics in order to get back to Trip’s home village. Along the way, the duo must fight robots hell-bent on eradicating humans, the pair relying each on another and their strained relationship to survive.
The game features actor and director Andy “Gollum” Serkis as Monkey, along with music composed by Nitin Sawhney. Novelist Alex Garland (28 Days Later) having penned the script.
Lucky for us, Ninja Theory boss Tameem Antoniades was willing to speak with us again regarding the game at Develop yesterday, and gave more information on the planned demo, DLC, and tell us exactly what he thinks of 3D and motion controls.
Join us for more after the break.
Interview by Joe Anderson.

Let’s say it’s finally happened. Your worst nightmares have come true, and Kinect’s become sentient, immediately proceeding to go on a human-murdering, Facebook photo-uploading rampage. You take a seat, hoping your attempt at not resembling a colorfully-clothed idyllic Typical American Family will throw it off your tracks. But that does nothing to slow Kinect’s charge.
In your desperation, you trip and fall flat on the ground. But then, something odd happens: Kinect goes haywire. Congratulations: you’ve just thwarted the apocalypse by lying down.
