Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski has reiterated that Bulletstorm’s over-the-top violence has a comedic edge to it.
Speaking in an interview with CVG, Bleszinski tires to once again drive home the fact that it’s all in good fun.
“You know the violence in games, the language and all those issues are issues… on one hand I’ve always found [that] very scary, that people are attacking the industry,” he said. “But on the other hand, I have found it somewhat flattering because it’s one of those situations where the fact that people think ‘ooh, big scary video games are ruining the world’, I guess, means that we’re the new rock and roll, the new Elvis, the new Dungeons and Dragons, the new moving pictures.
“It means we’re clearly hitting a nerve somewhere. I could talk all day about the tone of the violence in [Bulletstorm]. It’s very tongue in cheek.
“There wasn’t any sort of process [during the game’s creation] where we considered ripping off someone’s head and shitting down the neck or something like that. It was all in the name of fun.”
Bulletstorm is out next month on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
