Q&A About The ThingGames Domain has posted a The Thing Q&A. Andrew Curtis from Computer Artworks was on hand to provide the answers to their upcoming squad-based action game based on John Carpenters film. Heres what Curtis had to say about the gameplay:
Games Domain: Can you explain The Thing’s gameplay for us? Andrew Curtis: The Thing is a squad-based title, with the classic character sets – a solider, an engineer and a medic. As the head of that team, you need to utilise their abilities and skills to progress through the levels and you’re involved in puzzle solving tasks and combat, things like that. We had to look very, very closely at the film before making the game. All the major influences from the game came from the film, which was great as we had free reign and wasn’t just making a game that wasn’t simply walking you through the film.
