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.

Ninja Theory’s on the up and up. Despite failing to break even on Heavenly Sword two-and-a-half years ago, the British developer’s working on two new projects in Enslaved: Journey to the West and a secret game, which may or may not be a collaboration with Capcom on Devil May Cry 5.
The former is a futuristic version of the classic Chinese Monkey legend, Journey to the West, “the West” being something ravaged by World War III, as we were shown in Spain at a Namco press event earlier this month.
We were in Barcelona to talk to Ninja Theory boss Tameem Antoniades at the European pre-E3 bash to talk about Enslaved, a little bit about the secret project and more.
Get it after the break. New shots here.

Ninja Theory, developers of PS3 exclusive Heavenly Sword and the upcoming Enslaved from Namco-Bandai, has confirmed its started work on a “secret project”.

Ninja Theory co-founder Tameem Antoniades has told Eurogamer that while making Heavenly Sword, the development team felt caught in the middle of the console war.
Antoniades said that the situation was both “draining” and “unfair”.
“When you are exclusive, sometimes the pressure to demonstrate technology can override other aspects of game development,” he said. “Being involved in one side of a format war as if it’s the machines that make great games can also be draining.
“You get a lot of attention as an exclusive developer which is great, but on the flip side there was a lot of anti-Sony feeling going on which I felt was unfairly being directed at our team.”
Currently, the developer is at work on multiplatform title Enslaved, which has a post-apocalyptic setting. Antoniades calls the move to multiplatform “comfortable” as the team can now focus on just “building as compelling a game as we can”.
