Dark - Interview @ Realmforge
Realmforge a German game site has an interview with Dennis Blumenthal the Associate Producer of DARK. The interview is also in German but can be translated easily.
Could you first tell us how you came up with the idea to DARK?
"We are all big fans of classic stealth games such as Dark Project and the early Splinter Cell parts. In addition, many of us are fans of vampires and find it terribly, as the former terrors of the night shirtless run today as a teen sex symbols with Gelfrisur on the big screen. So we thought we'd kill two birds with one stone. We make a classic stealth game and vampires cool again "
Why did you choose just for a vampire as a hero and the
so very dark setting?
"Vampires are mysterious, all-powerful beings, but which nevertheless have clear weaknesses - in our view, perfect for a good stealth game. The player should have the feeling to be a powerful, incredibly strong predator that stalks in the shadow of his prey and is able to kill almost any enemy in seconds. At the same time he is not invincible, despite its strength itself and must be careful not to become a target itself. This game with the opponent and the risk that hunters and the hunted at any moment can change roles, DARK makes a special gaming experience - and we owe the vampires. "
DARK will be primarily a stealth title - which inspired originals (movies, games, etc.) did you have?
"Nosferatu, Blade, 30 Days of Night, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Dark Project 1 +2, Splinter Cell, and of course DuckTales. "
What makes DARK in your / your eyes and especially which feature do you like / your favorite?
"What makes DARK is the strong focus on original, unadulterated stealth gameplay in combination with the vampire myth. It never existed in this form. My personal favorite features are the vampire vision with which one the warm blood of living opponent can see through walls and other obstacles through and the shadows jump, a kind of vampiric form of teleportation, in which one dissolves into smoke and reappears in a different place, which is extremely cool.
