People Can Fly Downplays Overcrowded FPS Market
Many gamers have been very vocal about the First-Person Shooter genre being flooded with too many generic games and often complain at each new announcement. Bulletstorm developer People Can Fly thinks this complaint is nonsense and goes as far as comparing the market to the porno industry. If that wets your appetite then check below for quotes galore.
Speaking to Eurogamer, Creative director Adrian Chmielarz at People Can Fly had this to say about it.
“I haven’t heard anyone complaining that a book is ‘yet another detective novel’ or a movie is ‘just another action movie’ or a porno is ‘yet another one with big tits’.
Look, shooters are fun and they will be made as long as people want to buy them – it’s that simple. And by the way, I think that this ‘crowded market’ thing is a myth anyway. I’d happily play a great shooter every two weeks, but somehow that’s not happening. There are times where there’s barely one or two released in a quarter.
I know it looks like there are tons of shooters on the horizon, but that’s just it – it’s the horizon. When you look at what’s actually coming out in just the next month or two, it’s hard to say you’ll get spammed with shooters.”
When pushed further by Eurogamer to clarify just who they planned to target with the upcoming Bulletstorm, Chmielarz quickly shot back.
“Let me put it this way: if you have ever, even for one second, wanted to have a wallet that says BAD MOTHERF****R, you’re going to like Bulletstorm.”
I think most of us can agree that it would be very amazing to have a wallet that said BAD MOTHERF****R on it, but possibly without the *. Bulletstorm is looking to take gamers by storm when it releases February 22nd, 2011.
