Resistance 3 is out.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, it is a Playstation3 first-person shooter where one shoots alien-zombies (IN THE FIRST PERSON!!!). Alien-zombies may not be exactly novel, but this story is in the PAST! BAM! What do you say to that? It’s like West Side Story meets Predator. Yes it is. It’s exactly like that. Stop arguing.
Justin Gerard did some illustrations for the opening that are super and the guys from Edgeworx put some motion graphics sauce on them.
I had a small part in that I contributed some storyboards. I think this job was finished over a year or so ago, but I seem to remember my part was a little rushed. This made me especially grateful for the “on-top-of-it-ness” from all the guys at Edgeworx. The boards were okayed, I got some reference together and Justin worked a couple ridiculously long weeks and put together the illustrations you see in the game.
Below are the storyboard/final comparisons. I took screenshots from the first two minutes of a video that shows Justin’s work.
