Coutesy of Radical

Lurking in Vancouver, Canada is Radical Entertainment - the creators of tons of video games, including the new [kwlink]Crash of the Titans[/kwlink] game for PS2, [kwlink]Xbox 360[/kwlink] and [kwlink]Wii[/kwlink]. Slipping into his [kwlink]Crash Bandicoot[/kwlink] [kwlink]costume[/kwlink], Gary tried to sneak in to uncover their deep-dark secrets. The [kwlink]disguise[/kwlink] didn't work so well, but the friendly folks at Radical agreed to chat with Gary about life at Radical and how they made Crash of the Titans anyway!

Building a Better Bandicoot

From Squeaky Pants to Bug-Stomping

Making Crash of the Titans took about a year. It started with the idea of letting Crash "Jack" [kwlink]huge monsters[/kwlink], the idea got approved and the game got rolling. Team Crash was made up of 60 people - artists, programmers and one lonely comedy writer named Chris "They're talking animals that wear pants!" Mitchell (that's him below!) sat down and got to work building the game in three stages.
  • Stage 1: Pre-Production - Two months of planning and organizing.
  • Stage 2: Production - Nine months of building [kwlink]3D worlds[/kwlink], characters, moves and more.
  • Stage 3: Release - More than a month of bug-squashing as 10,000 errors are fixed so the game wouldn't suddenly turn into a pumpkin, [kwlink]delete your memory card[/kwlink], or sign you up for American Gladiators.

    Planning a Titan of a Game

    The first thing team Radical did was put a bunch of crazy ideas together. They started with a story full of [kwlink]jokes[/kwlink], Nina Cortex becoming the diva of evil, Engine losing his toast recipe and Neo Cortex wearing squeaky rubber pants. Ew. Then they came up with [kwlink]monsters[/kwlink], bosses, combat moves and bizarre levels. Next the Radical games crew hired awesome [kwlink]voice actors[/kwlink] like Tom Kenny, the voice of [kwlink]SpongeBob SquarePants[/kwlink], to do the crazy voices.

    Is Being a Game Developer Your Dream Job?

    • Heck yeah!
    • As long as I get to make the games I want.
    • Not if I have to make PS3 games.
    • I'd rather be a supervillain.
