In a surprising turn of events, the upcoming 2D adventure game, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, has taken shape not as a corporate directive from Ubisoft but as a passion project carefully crafted by a dedicated team of experts. Game Informer recently got an exclusive hands-on experience with the game, providing valuable insights into its development process.
Unlike conventional projects, the directive for The Lost Crown did not come “down from on high” but, as revealed by lead developer Radi, was born out of the perfect alignment of talent within Ubisoft.
Radi, the mastermind behind assembling the specialized team for The Lost Crown, emphasized,
It’s fully us. It’s not a command.
This departure from the usual corporate mandates allowed the team to channel their creative energies into a project they wholeheartedly believed in. Senior producer Abdelhak Elguess, in an interview with Game Informer, shared the sentiment, stating,
I didn’t want to do any Prince of Persia that I wouldn’t be proud of.
This commitment to excellence is evident in every aspect of the game, from platforming intricacies to the meticulous world-building.
What makes this venture even more remarkable is the synchronicity of talent availability within Ubisoft. The project fell into place because, as Radi explained,
The moment just happened to be right.
The team secured individuals with the precise skills required for a game of this caliber, ensuring that The Lost Crown isn’t just another title but a testament to the unwavering dedication of its creators.
In an exciting development, a demo for Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is slated to be released on January 11th, offering gamers a sneak peek into the immersive world crafted by a team driven not by obligation but by an unyielding commitment to delivering a Prince of Persia experience they can truly be proud of.
As the gaming community eagerly awaits this unique creation, it’s clear that The Lost Crown is not just a game; it’s a labor of love and expertise, promising an unparalleled adventure for fans of the iconic franchise.
