Pearl Harbor Trilogy – Wii
The brief for this project was simple and complex in one pass, it had to show the beautiful plane models in all their glory, make the game feel approachable and fun (as it’s a Wii title) and also had to function as a usable blog, allowing Legendo to update it with all the latest news and info on regular basis. Anyone who knows me knows I have a geeky obsession for WW2 aircraft, so this project was a literal dream come true! It combined my two loves, games and fighter planes, oh yes!
Man this was just a dream come true, WW2 fighter planes and games, I mean seriously, its perfect. It’s like if someone said to me, ‘Mike, tell me your ideal brief’ the guys at Legendo already knew it and knocked on my door with it in their hands! They also sent over the awesome 3D files too, allowing me UNLIMITED flexibility with the design. My goal was to make the aircraft feel as though they were in a dog fight and tearing out of the screen, so having the Max files to play with allowed me to achieve this soooo quickly. Ok I’m babbling I know, but I just loved this site!!
If anyone else out there is working on ANYTHING fighter aircraft based (WW2 or modern, and not just within the games industry either) please give me a shout, I love all things related to military aircraft...yes...I’m a full on geek ;)
This site was ace to work on and after playing the game so much I just had to inject as much of that excitement into the design as possible. So overall this was intended to feel like a high paced, neon filled futuristic sports battle zone.
This was seriously fun! Working with the guys behind the iOS smash 'Inkvaders' was bound to be rather exciting though wasn't it!
