More dev insights into BioShock 2

Unexpected fathers meet tough decisions far beneath the sea

“Fontaine Futuristics is a really good example of the creative relay race. The original idea for Gilbert Alexander came from myself and designer Tynan Wales. It was very loose back then, the level was wildly, wildly different. At some point it was handed off to Dean Tate, a BioShock veteran who’s now at Harmonix. It’s really his level design magnum opus, and he worked on it exhaustively out of the Australian studio.

“The script and the character of Alexander were my department, and John Hillner who plays Gil Alexander is bloody brilliant, and so he brought a lot to the character himself. I’m very proud of the level, because I do think that it is probably the single most BioShock level in the game.”
