Hudson has released the first of a four part documentary detailing the making of its upcoming Wii title, Lost in Shadow.
In this first part, the game's director, designer, programmer, and sound lead discuss the genesis of the project. The idea, you'll find, is the children's game of "Shadow Tag," which I guess is what everyone else was doing when I was pretending to be Cobra Commander in the woods.
It's actually completely bizarre, with the shadows of the four developers sitting in one of the game's environments, their silhouettes getting larger as they step up to speak. Mixed in with the interview is footage of the beautiful adventure game, which hits Wii on January 4, 2011. What do you guys think?
