PS3 Addict interviews Colin Berry – Lead Designer on Wipeout HD.
Q: How many people do you have working on WipEout HD?
A: We started with a very small team in spring 2007 of around 6 people. We are now up to around 25 or 30 to ensure the final code delivers all the great media feedback we've had so far following E3 and the Leipzig Games Convention.
Q: Is there anyone who's worked on all the WipEout games since the start of the franchise?
A: There are a couple of people yes, an Artist (Darren Douglas) and a Producer (Paul Tweedle) who started out by QA'ing the first WipEout!
Q: What do you think makes the WipEout team so special?
A: There is a good team spirit; we all help each other out as much as possible. Also there are lots of people on the team who are fans of the series so there is a high level of care and attention to detail and it helps having talented designers, artists and coders on the game.
