LOS ANGELES — Former Sony favorite Insomniac Games took the stage at Microsoft’s Electronic Entertainment press conference to reveal an Xbox One exclusive, Sunset Overdrive.
Ted Price, president and CEO of Insomniac, introduced Sunset Overdrive with a stylish trailer filled with tons of shooting and alien-like monsters. Price described it as an “open world shooter” with “inspired” world events. The trailer showed a young man [above] flying through a city while shooting bad guys. He and others — it looks like a multiplayer game, with fake names on top of the characters’ heads — used inventive weaponry like a gun that shoots vinyl records and another that’s filled with supercharged soda ammo, producing a huge explosion.
Three top investment pros open up about what it takes to get your video game funded.
