Are there any senior DF staffers on Brutal Legend from way back around the MM/Day Of The Tentacle era? Dave Grossman??
We have some of the original Grim Fandango animators — Mark Hamer and Chris Schultz. Still making awesome animation for us after all these years. I’m making it sound like they are 100 years old.
Finland is called the promised land of Heavy Metal. Will we be hearing any Finnish tunes on the extensive soundtrack?
As a Norwegian, I take issue with the premise of your question. Norway is the black heart of metal!
What was the development process like for this game? Was Jack Black involved? How many people contributed to the story?
I write the script, but the other designers contribute elements to the story through their gameplay ideas. Everyone on the team ads a little something to it. Including Jack!
How many classes of characters are available for each “faction”? So far I have heard of three.
We have Ironheade, which is the army that Eddie Riggs puts together. And the Drowning Doom, which is a more doom metal oriented group. General Lionwhyte’s Hair Metal Militia. Also the demon army known as the Tainted Coil.
How many bands, or genres of music will be in Brutal Legend?
Many, many bands. And we are trying to represent pretty much ALL of metal’s many subgenres… classic metal, black metal, industrial metal, power metal — all have their place in the story
Will there be and when can we expect a demo? I want to play this pure godliness!
Yes! No! Maybe! I don’t know. Someday? Watch www.brutallegend.com and you’ll probably know before I do.
What’s your favorite metal song and why?
I can’t pick a favorite! That would be like picking a favorite flower in a garden of beautiful flowers. Wait, no. It’s like something much tougher sounding than that!
What can you unlock?
As you play the game you earn new combat moves, upgrades for your axe and guitar, and weapons for your deuce. Plus you unlock new songs you can listen to while driving.
WILL BRUTAL LEGEND MAKE ALL FEELINGS OF INADEQUACY DISAPPEAR FROM MY PERSON IN A FLURRY OF HEAVY METAL REFERENCES.
You’re made of metal, your circuts gleam, you are perpetual, you keep the country clean.
Why don’t add a multiplayer to Brutal Legend… and make friends play the campaign??? It’s cool for me if you ask.
We do have multiplayer, and it’s awesome. I can’t make your friends play with you though.
