Infinity Blade is prelude to 'much bigger story'

Infinity Blade 2 will be available tonight, and is the continuation of what developer Chair Entertainment sees as an ongoing franchise. Co-founder Donald Mustard says the first game intentionally featured story hooks for sequels in case it was successful.

"The Hobbit is kind of the prelude to The Lord of the Rings," Mustard said. "What if Infinity Blade 1 was like the prelude to The Hobbit to the Lord of the Rings -- a prelude to this much bigger story we wanted to do?"

Epic boss Mike Capps speaks on industry uncertainty, $1 apps

Epic boss Mike Capps speaks on industry uncertainty, $1 apps

The games industry is presently at "an inflection point," Epic Games president Mike Capps has told Industry Gamers. Uncertain factors including digital distribution, the rise of mobile gaming and a focus on online play has lead the Gears of War 3 developer and Unreal Engine maker to ponder where things might be headed.

"If there's anything that's killing us [in the traditional games business] it's dollar apps," said Capps. "How do you sell someone a $60 game that's really worth it ... They're used to 99 cents. As I said, it's an uncertain time in the industry. But it's an exciting time for whoever picks the right path and wins." Read more »

GDC: Infinity Blade post-mortem

Epic's ChAIR Entertainment created Infinity Blade, the game that brought the Unreal Engine to iPhone and iPad, in five short months. That revelation came from studio co-founder Donald Mustard as part of his "Infinity Blade: How we made a hit, what we learned, and why you can do it to" post-mortem talk at GDC 2011

Infinity Blade, in fact, was not what they had been planning to work on next. After finishing Shadow Complex, the studio went into an intense brainstorming mode where over a two-week period each member of the team took one day and presented 30 game ideas.

Chair Entertainment co-founder Donald Mustard explained to Joystiq that the original concept for the studio's newly-released iOS game Infinity Blade was created for Microsoft's Kinect sensor.

We always have some cool ideas on deck, and kind of the inception of Infinity Blade began as a discussion around: "If we were going to make a Kinect title, what would we make? What would a Chair Kinect game look like?"That discussion happened, you know, a year and a half ago. We had this really cool design, and it's not that dissimilar from the game you're playing today; it's just been refined and adapted to the iOS screen, which honestly I think is where the design works the best.

Infinity Blade Trailer Reveals Gameplay, Graphics

Related Topics – , Infinity Blade, ipad, iphone, Trailer, iOS, App Store

Infinity Blade, the new action-RPG from ChAIR Entertainment and Epic Games, uses Unreal Engine 3 and runs on iOS devices. It looks amazing, but what about the gameplay?

This debut trailer shows off some battles with fantasy foes using swipes to strike. It also shows off an experience system, which generates points that are exchanged for items and upgrades. The live gameplay segments do seem to sport a bit of a framerate drop from the direct-feed, but we'll see for ourselves when the game hits the App Store later this year. Read more »
