Making Crash of the Titans :: Inside Radical Entertainment (pg.2)
Once the ideas were done, Team Radical sat down and actually built the 3D worlds, monsters and more with a program called Maya 7. Of course their computers were so advanced they were built of lasers and gold, right? Not quite. Here's the 411 on the computers they used - yours might even be more powerful!
Operating System: Windows XP
Processor: Four 2.4 GHz CPUs.
RAM: 2 GB RAM.
Video Card: GeForce 8800 GT with 512MB RAM.
Hard Drive: 100 GB or more.
Building the Tree
Life, Meetings and Macaroni
To keep the fun-factor, Team Crash would meet up every two weeks for a big show and tell party with cake and juice. It was the chance for people to show off the new attack they'd built, an awesome boss, or to just chat about the mac 'n cheese at the Radical cafeteria. Once a month Team Crash would even show off their work to the whole company and the really cool stuff would win awards.
Mmmac 'n Cheese!
