Ubisoft are aiming to make their next South Park game even more outrageous than the first, working very closely with the cartoon’s creators to ensure it’s authentically offensive.
It’s going to be very adult, just like our list of PC’s best sex games.
Matt Stone and Trey Parker are supposedly very hands-on with The Fractured But Whole. In fact, you’ll be able to see their fingerprints all over The Fractured But Whole. They’ve definitely put a lot into The Fractured But Whole, according to the PlayStation Blog.
Senior Producer Jason Schroeder spoke to the blog about the comedy duo’s involvement.“They’re really, really involved,” says Schroeder. “We have daily calls and I’m down there a few times a month just constantly trying to make sure that they’re getting the comedy they want into the game and making sure that it all makes sense moment to moment.
“My aspiration is to make sure every South Park fan gets an unedited Matt Stone and Trey Parker experience.
“We always want to try and make sure to get every joke in that we can. Sometimes we have to ask the guys ‘Okay, do you want that to be a gag or do you want it to be a whole system? Should we build this in as a dynamic part of the game or do we want it to just be something that happens?’”
No doubt Stone and Parker’s experience will bring a great deal to the RPG sequel. It’s not like videogames are known for their wit. In fact, it’s a criminally under-served genre in videogames, and that’s likely because there aren’t that many writers adept or brave enough to pull it off. It’s not like Stone and Parker are scared of being a little controversial for a few laughs, though, is it?
As Schroeder puts it: “There’s hopefully going to be some stuff in there that people will say ‘How did that make it through classification?’”
