Insomniac Games Sticking to Its Guns, Plotting Plenty More Fuse

Hoping to light a spark

Despite being hit by a tirade of middling reviews, Insomniac Games is aiming to stick with its fledgling Fuse franchise. Writing on the company’s official website earlier today, a candid Ted Price admitted that the developer is aware of the negative response to the title – but the studio’s going to stick with the multiplatform series all the same.

“We’ve already begun expanding what we’ve begun with Fuse,” he said. “Right now, as I write this, we’re taking the core concepts behind Fuse and prototyping new stuff – stuff that leverages this bizarre alien substance which is at the heart of the game. No, I’m not talking about DLC. I’m talking about new Fuse experiences altogether.”

Price continued that the beauty of creating an intellectual property that’s not owned by an external publisher is that “you can take it [in] any direction that you want”. We wouldn’t be surprised if the studio returned to the title’s original Overstrike premise – but we’ll have to wait and see what it’s got in mind.

Honestly, as much as we’re stoked that Insomniac’s getting to do what it wants, we’d much rather the company focus its efforts on completely resurrecting the Ratchet & Clank series. With the movie due out in a couple of years, there’s massive potential for a traditional entry in the franchise on the PlayStation 4. And let’s be blunt: isn’t that what we all really want?

I lost interest in Insomniac when it sold its soul to EA. Just like Bioware, the quality of this company's products will go right down the toilet. Heck it's already started, I'm hearing nothing but bad things about Fuse.

To me the art style isn't the problem. From what I've seen and read it's the brutality/cruelty of the violence and the profanity. Just because someone is your enemy doesn't give you the right or obligation to torture them or inflict as much pain as possible.
