As the founder of Arkane Studios, Raphael Colantonio channeled his passion for immersive sims like Deus Ex and Thief into Dishonored. Now he’s making something that pulls from his other passion, classic top-down RPGs like Fallout and Ultima 7. “The difference with Weird West, and the kinds of games I like to work on, is the physicality of it,” he said in an interview for The PC Gaming Show. “When you go from first person to top-down, there’s not much difference in the spirit. Instead of seeing through the eyes of the character, you have a chance to run a party of people. You have followers, and more of a strategy view. The exploration is still the same spirit, but with a different perspective.”
