How do you put Ozzy Osbourne into Brutal Legend? Do you motion capture? No, sir, you do not.
“We didn’t mo-cap,” Doublefine boss Tim Schafer told VG247 at E3. “We tried to capture the essence with this really great animation.
“[With] motion capture you get literally what people move like but we went for animation that represents the feel of Ozzy Osbourne; the motions are bigger than life in a way.
“The game has a really exaggerated art style, and [we did] motion in the same way.”
Schafer told us Osbourne was “great fun to work with” and went so far to call him a “hoot”. He’s not a gamer though, apparently, said Tim.
Brutal Legend, Ozzy and all, hits this autumn for PS3 and 360.
