Insomniac Games’ first multi platform game, Fuse, hasn’t even released yet, and it’s already been under a little bit of scrutiny. Ever since Insomniac changed the name from Overstrike to Fuse last year, people who’ve gotten their hands on the game have stated that the experience has been nothing but generic. Ryan Schneider, the Head of Marketing for Insomniac Games recently sat down News 10’s Game Guys, and he discussed how original the game is.
“Fuse is anything but generic,” Schneider states, citing not only the game’s ‘Leap’ mechanic and its ‘Echelon’ play mode, but also Insomniac Games’ track record of game development. “It’s going to stand out amongst a sea of sequels right now. And as far as the ‘flop’ comments go, all we can focus on is making a great game. We are working close with Electronic Arts and hope for the best when it comes to a campaign that’s going to be supported throughout launch.” Since I haven’t seen a lot on the game, I’m going to wait and see what happens when the game finally comes out. I’m sure a lot of people feel the same way, but you can’t really doubt Insomniac Games, they have a great track record.
