|Session Name:||Building an Open-World Game Without Hiring an Army|
|Company Name(s):||Sucker Punch Productions|
|Track / Format:||Visual Arts|
|Overview:||Creating the environment for an open-world game is difficult; doing so without hiring an army of content creators is more so. For inFamous we built a massive, realistic open-world city, at urban density levels and post-riot amounts of trash and debris. We did this with a team of roughly a dozen artists, without outsourcing any content creation. How is this possible? Come to the session and learn all the cheap tricks Sucker Punch uses to maximize our precious Artists time. A detailed explanation of our systems for hex bases tiling, building footprint standardization and city layout shortcuts will all be illustrated.|
