If you’ve ever played one of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted games, we know that protagonist Nathan Drake customarily faces off opposite dozens of gun-wielding baddies who wish zero some-more than to peppers him with bullets. Firefights see a shade branch gradually some-more red as Drake is strike and eventually dies, though according to some of a series’ developers, he wasn’t removing strike with those bullets during all.
Naughty Dog animator Jonathan Cooper revealed on Twitter that a user interface grows red to designate Nathan Drake’s fitness using out — rather than being strike by a bullets, he’s nearly getting his by them, and his genocide occurs when a deadly bullet finally hits a target. Cooper jokingly referred to it as “ludonarrative consonance,” poking fun during a term that has been thrown around per a undo between on-screen actions and a game’s story.
Amy Hennig, who served as artistic executive on a initial 3 games, reliable that this was a team’s intention, as well, adding that it was “aligned with a suggestion and tinge of a films” to that Uncharted paid homage.
Hennig was essentially referring to a Indiana Jones films, that saw Harrison Ford’s impression tarry certain genocide time and time again, mostly while defeating waves of enemies. Perhaps a many important and barbarous instance of his near-invincibility was in a polarizing Indiana Jones and a Kingdom of a Crystal Skull, where Jones climbs inside a refrigerator to equivocate being killed by a chief bomb.
The preference to make bullets skip Nathan Drake is contrasted by Naughty Dog’s proceed in The Last of Us, where Joel has to gauze and reanimate himself after being shot. Inspired by presence stories like The Road, this is a tonally and thematically suitable choice, and fits with a post-apocalyptic setting.
Killing other vital beings hits Joel — and generally Ellie — tough in The Last of Us, while Nathan Drake doesn’t unequivocally seem to care. Perhaps it’s since his rivals seem to have an unconstrained army of minions to send his way. though we wouldn’t wish to watch Drake in a therapy event to plead his actions.
