AusGamers has interviewed MachineGames' Jens Matthies about Wolfenstein: The New Order.
From the interview:
"AusGamers: A lot of people have been talking since the teaser trailer was released, and I guess with the presentation dynamic that you have, Tarantino's name has been dropped left, right, and centre, but I’d argue -- apart from the Bubi sequence that we watched earlier, which was hilarious -- were you going for that kind of Inglorious Basterds tone? Is that something that you’re using as a tonal reference?
Jens: Yeah, that’s very much... it’s so great that that movie came out, because it’s one of the few examples ever, that sort of walks the fine line between really intense truthful drama, and just over-the-top mayhem and cathartic action, and that’s exactly our sweet spot for this game.
So it’s not like... our story has nothing to do with that story of course, they’re two different animals, but in terms of the tone, it’s a very good point of reference..."
