You know, developers are gamers, too. They are aware of the trends…even the nasty recurring ones that won't seem to go away.

This generation, we have seen examples of decent games based on movies. In fact, there have been quite a few, even if they still aren't the norm. And if Propaganda Games isn't just blowing smoke, we should soon be able to add Tron: Evolution to the growing list of "exceptions to the rule." According to the studio's game director Darren Hedges, the team has gone to great lengths to buck the trend of mediocre games based on films. Here's what he had to say in a recent GamerZines interview :

"When we started TRON: Evolution, one of the key drivers for us was to dispel that movie based game stigma because it has sat around the past twenty years.

If you have played the game there will be parts in the movie, where you recognise certain aspects and events which you've taken part in. It may only be a five minute segment in the movie, but what they are talking about is the two hours worth of blood, sweat and tears which you played in the game."

This is another game that isn't based exactly on the film's story; the plot of the interactive entertainment is set before the events of the upcoming movie ("Tron: Legacy"). Hedges went on to say that game development usually "takes a lot longer than film development" and they actually sat down with the movie makers and did some brainstorming.

If you're old enough to remember "Tron," you're likely hoping both movie and game turn out to be worthwhile; that old arcade classic continues to play repeatedly in my brain whenever I think about it…

I've Never liked a Disney game and it seems it will stay that way. Hopefully Disney will make me eat those words and make this work.

I predict that both the movie and game will suck, so it won't be that much of a problem here.

Dang World… The original Tron was bad ass and the trailers for the new movie look bad ass too. Why such a pessimistic view?

hopefully it will be a good game, especially since its one of the very few games releasing this year with move support.
my move controllers are feeling very unloved, have not touched them since i finished heavy rain a few weeks ago.

Uh-huh…four hour campaign that's heavy on repetitiveness? 🙂 I hope it's good, I really do. I'm a fan of the original movie and game. Unfortunately, every developer of every movie game claims that their's will be the exception to the rule. I'm still hoping that they will include the original game as an extra on the disk.
