South Park - Interview @ Polygon

by Couchpotato, 2013-07-20 00:35:52

Polygon has a new article syle interview with Trey Parker, and Matt Stone the creators of South Park.

Parker and Stone repeatedly lamented the protracted development cycle of South Park: The Stick of Truth, calling it a six-month-long Tuesday — referring to the frantic day before South Park the TV show airs, when the show's creators are still tweaking, writing and animating.

When a fan asked the duo how they felt as the game's original publisher, THQ, crumbled and whether they feared the game would be canceled, they joked they felt relieved, thinking, "Oh, good, it's over!"

"We really just read about it in the news," Parker said, "that they were going bankrupt, that someone else bought [the rights to] the game. Once we heard who had bought it, we got really excited. We flew up to [Ubisoft] and all that momentum picked up and we got really excited again."

When asked by another fan what games they loved to play, as both admitted to being fans of the medium (if not fans of previous South Park games), Parker initially said Crash Bandicoot 2. His slightly more serious answer, as it related to The Stick of Truth, was Nintendo's EarthBound.
