Spark Unlimited lead designer John Garcia-Shelton believes taking on market-leading games by imitating them is a mistake. For him and his Pandora's Box-themed shooter Legendary: The Box, the key to success is offering you something unique.
"If I felt I was making a game like BioShock or Halo I would feel pressure to outdo them," John Carcia-Shelton told Eurogamer. "But we bring something different to the table that they don't and it's that energy and intensity and experience for the player that we believe will make us stand out in our own way."
"You can't out-Halo Halo, and the same goes for BioShock, but being different is a beautiful thing that gamers want and appreciate."
