Sky Captain Game Creators Interviewed
9:14 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

HomeLAN Fed has posted an interview with Blitz Digital Studios concerning their Flying Legion Combat Challenge game. An official title for the upcoming movie Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Flying Legion is offered as a free download, rather than as a Flash title as is more commonly done, from the official Sky Captain site for both the Mac and PC.

Discussed in the interview are the relative freedoms and assistance Blitz received when creating the game for Paramount. One aspect that was a bit crunched, however, was the development time.

We feel it is the most elaborate and advanced game that is available for a free download. The Dev time was roughly 3 months, and with consoles taking 2-3 years to produce, we couldn’t be more proud of what we have done in such a short time. There were many custom tools written to achieve the look and overcome many technical limitations, and get the results in half the time it would’ve normally taken…
Also discussed are other titles currently in development as well as a hidden bonus level included in Flying Legion that will activate as the release date for the movie itself approaches.
