The lights are on
Leaving the world of Ratchet and Clank behind, creative director Brian Allgeier and senior writer TJ Fixman were tasked with creating a universe to house Insomniac's new game, Fuse. The tone of the game has shifted through the last couple of years, but the team at Insomniac is now confident that they have nailed a cohesive play space for players to enter when Fuse is released in spring 2013. We spoke to Brian and TJ about some of the early ideas for characters that were scrapped, the difficulty of writing relationships between four playable characters, and why Fixman believes that the final area in Fuse is "the coolest thing I've seen come out of this company in years".

keeps freezing on me at 14sec
I keep thinking that girl is Lilith from Borderlands. She got a spinoff!
I find their enthusiasm reassuring.
Also did I hear Ms. Hale will be involved?
I wish they would have kept the cartoonish vibe, but it seems like it will be a fun Co-op game to play with friends.
insomniac never disappoints, so i definitely will keep this on my radar after i purchase ratchet & clank collection...
Now I understand the direction of the game a bit better, but Overstrike would have been like playing TF2, with silly characters, but amazing gameplay and balance.
I believe the secret ingredient is suck.
I DEMAND MORE RATCHET AND CLANK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will be keeping my eye in this but I still think the original stylized look was better.
Overstrike > Fuse
This looks pretty cool actually, might get it.
Overstrike reminded me of The Incredibles, Fuse just reminds me of a generic 3rd person shooter.
