It's so refreshing when development companies actually aim to raise the standards of videogame development rather than sit back and rehash sequel after sequel. While it's plain to see if you've ever watched an Uncharted: Drake's Fortune gameplay video, Naughty Dog's gameplay animation lead Jeremy Yates explains how they're pushing animation technology further than we've ever seen before.Impressively, Naughty Dog has crammed 10 times more animations in Uncharted than it has in any game its ever made, and it clearly shows as Nathan moves seamlessly from one set of animations to another.
According to Yates, Naughty Dog has three goals for Uncharted's animation: realistic movement, fluidity and responsiveness. From everything we've seen so far, they're right on track.
