Sony Santa Monica: “We’re Making a New Style of Game”
Chronicling their move from Penn Station to The Reserve, PlayStation released the above new video about Sony Santa Monica, which also includes a discussion on their new logo, a look at their studio through a scavenger hunt, a few questions from their first day game show, and more.
Also, at 0:58, one member of the team says, “It’s gonna be a new page. I think we’ll set up some new routines. We’re making a new style of game. It’s gonna be a good symbolic break and a new beginning.” It’s possible he’s talking about the studio’s collaboration on The Order: 1886, Hohokum, or Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, or he’s talking about a brand new game from the core team, so feel free to take that comment however you like.
Here’s the description for the video:
After 15 years in the house that built the hit franchise God of War and published award-winning games including flOw, Flower, Journey, Warhawk, Sound Shapes, The Unfinished Swan, Fat Princess, and more, Santa Monica Studio has moved to a new development home. Watch their journey from the final day at Penn Station to the beginning of a new chapter at The Reserve. Learn more about the culture of Santa Monica Studio, a family of developers who make it one extremely fun place.
Following the video, Cory Barlog sent out this tweet to everyone wondering what he’s working on:
To all who want to know what I am working on – this is it. Entire game story/flow on 171 cards. Ugh, So much to do:) pic.twitter.com/fVDZn3EapM
