Default Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Interview Series @ Siliconera

May 8th, 2010, 00:29
Siliconera is celebrating Golden Week (Google it - I had to) with a series of Deus Ex: Human Revolutions interview snippets with Art Director Jonathan Jacques Belletete. First, they talk about the connection to the original (and, oddly, hiring consultants to identify the core of its success):
Itís interesting that you say point out it is a shooter. I remember the first game had choices like diplomacy and hackingÖ will Human Revolution have those choices?
Big time. One of the things I say all of the time is there are aspects, very import aspects, of Deus Ex 1 that we identified straight from the get go. We even had an exterior firm also kind of do a study of those things for us, making sure we identified really what those the core elements, that made spirit, like the soul of the first one, what they were. We said, these things weíre not touching them. These things we bring them back into Deus Ex 3 and then we give it our own texture around it.
So, all of that freedom of choice, you know, is there. All of that I just want to go through the entire game without killing is there. Or if you really want to be the last man on Earth you can do this. If you like stealthing more than using weapons, if you want to hack through things, and just like the first one the level design is really built around those choices. Yeah, it works well. The comments that we had were this really feels like Deus Ex 1.
Next, they ask if players will see familiar characters from the first game, then on to the colour palette theme of black and gold and, finally, stylised characters with Final Fantasy hair:
And yeah, itís Square Enix, and as a huge fan, they are the best in CGI. They are always the top of the top. They have specific techniques that they do that I wanted, like the hair. If you look at Adamís hair, yeah itís Final Fantasy hair. Iím not going to deny it. Iím going to tell you, thatís what I wanted. Iím like donít try to do any other types of hair. You are the best at it, itís stylized, and thatís what I want Adam to have. The haircut is the haircut he has in the game, itís the haircut we designed. So be it, man.
Thanks, Omega!

Here's the link to stylised characters with Final Fantasy hair
It seems the link didn't stick in your newsbit, Dhruin.

I really liked this answer

Weíve talked a lot about Deux Ex 1, but was there anything you felt from Invisible War [Deus Ex 2] you took inspiration from for Human Revolution?


"Nah, nothing. Itís very true. Visually speaking itís too much purple. [Laughs]"

"I mean it itís a consensus really. People just did not really like it. The first one was for strong. I remember I jumped on the second one when it came out. I bought for PC and I bought it for my Xbox. I donít know why I bought both versions. But, I was so stoked it was a new game in that universe and I just couldnít get into it. It just didnít have that soul anymore. Thatís my personal opinion, but Iím sure itís really spread out."

"If you go on a forum, if you go on other forums, if you go anywhere, any gaming sites where people can say what they think, everything you get is, donít do it like the second one. Thatís not from me I just seeing Ė donít fó this up, donít do it like the second one, please donít do it like the second one. Itís really what 98% of the fans think."
