Unreal Tournament 2003 Interview
6:00 AM | Daniel Bogan | Comment on this story

The Computer and Video Games site has posted an interview with Epic producer Jay Wilbur, discussing the upcoming Unreal Tournament 2003 and the future of the Unreal franchise.

Here's a snippet:

Why do you think the Unreal series has captured the gaming public's imagination as much as it has?

Wilbur: When the original Unreal came out, the world was dominated by Quake, which was a good game, but it was very brown. Unreal presented a whole new palette of colours. A whole new range of environments. It opened the game up to an expansiveness, which meant that the first time you walked out into the open, and looked around, you'd see a waterfall and birds flying in the distance. It opened up a whole new world for people. Unreal Tournament, took the series in a different direction. It expanded the Unreal franchise into a sort of multiplayer one-on-one sporting event.

The interview also contains eleven early screenshots of Unreal Tournament 2003. While as yet unannounced for the Mac, the odds are that we'll see a port given the success of the existing Unreal games on our favorite platform - thanks in no small part to Westlake.
