Apple Games Features Ratatouille
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Apple Games' latest feature examines Ratatouille, the game version of Pixar's latest animated movie. In the game players take the role of Remy, a rat with a taste for the finer things, as he follows his dream through six perilous worlds drawn from the movie's locations. Apple's article features comments from the game's production director, Keith Pope, as well as tips and cheats for the game, and a brief biography of the movie's director.
Fearlessness also inspired Pope and the team to use the movie’s unique star to their advantage. “We wanted to achieve a solid blend of action-platform gameplay, combined with more of a playground feel,” he says. “We knew we needed a navigation aid, so we focused on trying to get what we could from who Remy is: a rat with a great sense of smell. We thought of cartoon scent trails and drew on that to create a visual pathing system.”Check out the rest of Apple's new feature at the link below.

And, voilà, you can use Remy’s keen nose to guide you through each of the game’s vast levels. With plenty of human-sized environments to explore, you can always take a side trip and uncover a few hidden delights before moving back to the task at paw. “There are very few games that allow the player to be a small character interacting in a world of very large potential enemies,” Pope notes. “We captured that feeling by capitalizing on the use of humans and a sense of danger in the game.”
