Splash Damage boss Paul Wedgwood’s explained the thinking behind the title of his upcoming shooter Brink, saying the name is supposed to signify the “critical moment just prior to catastrophe or success”.
“You know, the reason I love the name ‘Brink’ is because – well, the literal definition of the term is ‘the edge of a precipice,'” he told us, speaking in an interview published today.
“It has good connotations in that sense. But actually, the definition that comes to mind for most people is ‘the brink of disaster.’ Because what Brink really means is that critical moment just prior to catastrophe or success.”
The Splash Damage shooter is set on the Ark, an artificial city floating at sea on the brink of a civil war.
“It’s kind of the perfect description of what it is,” added Wedgwood.
The game’s out on PC, PS3 and 360 early next year.
