How do you even begin to reenvision the Guardians of the Galaxy? That’s exactly what our team at Eidos-Montréal did. Step 1: dive into 50 years of Guardians legacy, from comics to movies, animated series, music videos and more. Step 2: once you get the essence of the Guardians, put your own spin on it by drawing onto your own expertise and experiences. Step 3: take all of this to create the best possible Guardians adventure for a video game, by collaborating with the Marvel team. It’s that simple.
Hear from Jean-Francois Dugas (Sr Creative Director), Mary DeMarle (Executive Narrative Director) and Olivier Proulx (Sr Producer) about their journey to create their own take on the Guardians of the Galaxy. They’re joined by no other than Bill Rosemann (VP, Creative at Marvel Games) and special guest Dan Abnett!
Dan Abnett was instrumental in the reimagination of the Guardians of the Galaxy in the 2008 comics, which was one of the key inspirations for our team. We were honored to have the opportunity to show him our game and get his thoughts for this video. Dan is convinced the Guardians can have longevity that transcends eras, and was excited to find out our game proves him right.
Be sure to check out the comics Annihilation, Annihilation: Conquest and Guardians of the Galaxy (2008), for which Dan has contributed his pen. Take if from us who’ve lived and breathed Guardians to create this game – you’ll love them.
