Ted Price Interview: Insomniac Brings "Strong Console Sensibilities" to Facebook

Insomniac Games - what's the first word that pops into your head? PlayStation? Ratchet? Resistance? It likely isn't Facebook, but CEO Ted Price would probably like to change that with his studio's first social-network title Outernauts, an adventure RPG that just launched in the last week.

The game allows you to explore and capture and train "exotic beasts." Interestingly, Insomniac's push into the world of Facebook gaming isn't aimed necessarily at typical FarmVille players. GamesIndustry International caught up with Price and young lead designer Rowan Belden-Clifford to talk about the company's new social effort and how the landscape is changing.

Meanwhile a death metal rockstar wannabe is selling his soul at a crossroad intersection.

I miss the old Insomniac.

Remember when they were keeping up with Naughty Dog and ahead of Sucker Punch?

Now Naughty Dog is lightyears ahead of them, and Sucker Punch has surpassed them.

They should have stuck with one franchise at a time.

HebrewHammer3287d ago

Agreed.

I also think Overstrike will be a commercial disaster, especially given how long it's taking them.

I think they should have let Sony buy 'em out. I'm sure they offered at least 50 times.

HebrewHammer3287d ago

There have been - but they're awful. Activision has publishing rights now, and some random studio has been making them.

Unfortunately, it's out of Insomiacs hands.

Cyrisaurus3287d ago

Wait, are you RealityPalez?

WeskerChildReborned3287d ago

Agreed, i wonder if they are working on a future Spyro game cause has their been one for this gen?

Gaming via social networking is a passing fad. Sucked ass but was cool on Myspace for about a year when I was 12, reappeared on FB recently and the only thing I see about it are all my friend's statuses asking to quit sending Farmville requests.

LOL_WUT3287d ago

That must be a new personal low for Ted Price. Who would've though Insominiac would be making social network games? Desperate times call for desperate measures. Hopefully they don't become the next Rare...

clrlite3287d ago

yes, I hope this isn't as dismal as it may be perceived as. going through some hard times in my own life, I hope they will bounce back if need be and find true success.

This guy looks like Michael Phelps
