 Epic consults Pixar on Gears of War: Judgment
topic by Jesszman - 06-27-2012, 12:05 PM


Epic Games sought the help of Toy Story and Finding Nemo animation studio Pixar for its upcoming shooter Gears of War: Judgment, Epic production director Rod Fergusson told the GameStop-owned Game Informer magazine recently. Epic attended a one-day workshop led by a story director from Pixar in an effort to learn the secrets of telling a strong story.

According to Fergusson, the workshop focused on nailing down character traits, specifically what they fear and what they love. He specifically called out Woody from the Toy Story series, saying Pixar made clear this character had a fear of abandonment, and so every movie was hinged upon that trepidation.

Regarding Gears of War: Judgment, Fergusson said the purpose of attending the workshop with Pixar was to get to the root of the following questions: What are the characters' motivations? How should these be reinforced? And how should Epic and co-developer People Can Fly go about incorporating these motivations into their storytelling?

"We've been trying to improve on storytelling since we started," Fergusson said. "And this seemed like a natural way of getting a little bit of insight into how what we consider to be the best in the industry."

But you're asking Pixar what the motivation for your characters are?

no i think they are going to Pixar to learn how to convey the motivation of their characters in a way that the gamer will be able to recognize without it being blatantly told to us.

Stop trolling dude. You know they didn't go to specifically to ask why Marcus n Dom r shooting sh*t. They went to go find better ways to convey emotion, motivation, themes etc thru a company that has that art down in spades.

Like a movie like wall e is all about isolation. And they did it masterfully. Epics biggest problem is its hard to deliver mood in an high octane shooter. Half Life and Bioshock had it in spades(using mood, tempo, setting, enemies to convey themes and story without stopping gameplay to tell you how to feel) but gears isn't in that vain.

Like everyone else, we try yo learn from other pplwho do something well.

Stop it b. You know damn well I don't troll when it comes to Gears. That's what ushered me into this generation. Gears is hands down my go-to 360 exclusive.

Pixar is the #1 company in the entire world when it comes to developing characters. I don't think I've ever cared more about characters than in Pixar movies, which is crazy. Pretty brilliant move.
