‘Recall’ is off to a good start
Blizzard is producing a number of animated shorts for its team-based shooter Overwatch and this one, “Recall,” centers on Winston the scientist gorilla. If you’re expecting there to be an origin-story flashback showing him as a big-eyed baby, you’re not wrong. Awww. I can’t stay mad at you.
I’m eager to see more of these. This out-of-game storytelling approach worked well for Valve with Team Fortress 2, and I’m expecting a similar outcome here. There’s also a graphic novel in the works.
