The lights are on
Sometimes on Replay we reminisce about old games that we love, and other times we function as therapy. On this week's episode, Tim Turi, Kyle Hilliard, and I are joined by special guest Haydn Dalton, the lead designer of Darksiders II. Haydn was also involved in developing a notoriously flawed but distressingly successful game called 50 Cent: Bulletproof.
We sit Haydn down for his first serious time with Bulletproof since he shipped the game. In addition to some goofing around, Haydn gives us some great insight into how troubled development can drag down talented game makers and some of the problems this specific project faced. After that, Haydn sticks around to show us another slightly less terrible project that he has his fingerprints on.
Special thanks go out to Haydn for being such a good sport in taking a look at what was surely a difficult project for him and putting up with our dumb jokes. Show him some love by checking out the first Darksiders if you haven't yet. It's awesome! You can check out more of Haydn's commentary and Darksiders in the developer commentary video that we recorded last summer.
