IMG Interviews Oni's Hardy LeBel
10:06 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

IMG has just posted a new interiew with the lead designer for Oni,
Hardy LeBel. The Q&A covers how this long-delayed title finally made it to
completion. The removal of multiplayer features is also addressed, as well as the
decision to port this game to a next-generation console. Here's a clip:

IMG: The intro movie (anime) is quite amazing -- whom did Bungie work with to create this? How much input did you have over the look and pacing of the clip, i.e. did Bungie do actual storyboards?

Bungie (Alex Okita) worked with A.I.C. to create the intro (and the outro ;^>!) movies for the game. Marty O'Donnell scored them after they had been finished. And yes, Alex did do a number of storyboards for those sequences. It was very exciting to see the team at A.I.C. turn those stills into
dynamic sequence we have now.

Check out the rest of the interview now to get the inside scoop on Oni's
development. Be sure to get your pre-orders for the game in now, as this title is
set to be released next week for Mac, PC, and Playstation 2.
