Adventure Time creators love games, plan to make games

It's clear from this panel at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival that the creators of the hit show Adventure Time really loves videogames. There are a lot of name drops here in terms of gaming's influence on the show; Zelda, Mario, Metroid, Day of the Tentacle, and especially Minecraft. They even threw out some ideas for what they'd want the Adventure Time game to play like. A few of the guys struggled with the answer, but not series creator Pendleton Ward. Without missing a beat, he comes out with "Katamari graphics with Monster Hunter-style gameplay". This is right after Mr. Ward has already re-pledged his interest in making videogames himself. It's clear that he's already given a lot of thought into what he wants out of Adventure Time's inevitable jump to the gaming world, and that he intends to make those plans a reality.

As much as I love Guillermo Del Toro, I have to say that out of all the Hollywood-types out there, Pendleton Ward is the one I'd most trust to make a quality videogame. I just hope some smart, sassy game publisher has the guts to give the guy a mutli-million dollar budget and the total creative freedom he deserves.
