For several months after its unveiling at the E3 in 2006, most gamers simply talked about "that Naughty Dog game", thanks to Sony's neglecting to supply a title to its brief clip. It wasn't until February that we found out the game's name, and that only made people more curious...
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is the story of an everyman, Nathan Drake, and his attempts to follow in the footsteps of 16th century explorer Sir Francis Drake (no relation... or is there?). The game supposes that the English mariner didn't die in 1586, as the history books say, but had one last adventure in the South American jungle. That's where Nathan comes in.
Is he related to Sir Francis? What sort of adventures await? And is the game going to make fence-sitters want a PS3?
To find out more, Kikizo went straight to Richard Lemarchand, the lead game designer on Drake's Fortune at Naughty Dog.
