G4TV: Reaction Time: Insomniac Games Reflects On Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time

G4TV writes: "There are few franchises more beloved at G4 than Ratchet & Clank. As huge character-driven platformer buffs, Adam Sessler and I can gab endlessly about Insomniac Games' series. We've done it on Feedback. We'll do it again when the next Ratchet & Clank is announced. Before that happens, however, I got on the phone with creative director Brian Allgeier and senior writer TJ Fixman. Both of these guys are responsible for the future of Ratchet & Clank. To understand the future, we need to talk about the past. Keep reading for our conversation about Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time.

G4: I'm a huge fan of Lost, so anything that involves time travel, especially during times when Lost is not on, so I'd like to think that A Crack In Time was hugely inspired by Lost to fill that void in my life.

Brian Allgeier: That's why we did it, to fill that void! [laughs] It's certainly a show that has come up often here and you can probably see references here and there over past games. I think in Tools of Destruction we did a little nod to it with the film reel that Cronk and Zephyr and Ratchet watch, revealing the location of Sargasso. We definitely talked about Lost for that particular scene." (PS3, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time, Ratchet And Clank Future: Quest For Booty)
