GDC Wrap-up (Part 2) – The Naughty Dog Sessions

32 0

I just wanted to drop a quick note to anybody out there who is interested in the talks that Naughty Dog gave at the 2008 Game Developers Conference. We just posted the slides to all 8 sessions on our website. You can find them here.

GDC Naughty Dog Slide

They cover a wide range of topics including lighting, animation, modeling, tools and a project post-mortem. So for everybody who couldn’t make it to the sessions, or if you’re just interested in the development of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, enjoy.

    sorry for posting this here but the hitbox isn’t working.

    love the work Naughty Dog are doing be good to see what they come up with in the future

  • Uncharted first, then I had to try Crash. I’ve been bit by the DOG!

  • @mobiletone

    haha nice tatoo. thats some loyalty right there. sony should hook you up with some free stuff since your a walking advertisment for the PS3.

  • @NewYork214 – i just do it for the love.. freebies would be a nice extra though :) have picked up the story. it’s not like it’s my only tat, a few of my others are totally barking.

  • I loved your game and looking forward to see what your cooking up next.

    Thank you


  • Uncharted is one of the best games i’ve played this generation.

    I’m on my third time through because you people at naughty dog made it cheat proof.

    Apparently you cant change the difficulty mid game, then change it back to hard right before you beat it… lol.

    I’ve found 46 treasures, on my own. I know a ton of people that use the guide, its really interesting to see all of the little places the team h id them.

    Seriously though, good job on this title. It for me has done what the Davy Jones CGI did for pirates. Made you really respect the team for pulling off such amazing imagery.

    Sound design is amazing as well. Give everyone a rasie.


    Whoa! And I already played it! I have something they are still making!

  • Uncharted was my favorite game last year :), great job guys.

  • Everyone at Naughty Dog should be extremely proud of Uncharted. I think it is their best work ever and definitely one of the best games of 2007. Hopefully we don’t have to wait too long for their next game.
