Mars dev: First and foremost, we want it to be a great PS3 game
Posted on March 19, 2009 by Nick

Spiders Games, a new, independent France-based developer, caused a quite ripple last week when they announced their PS3 console exclusive RPG, Mars.  Speaking exclusively to PS3Center, Spiders revealed that the PS3 is the lead platform of the title, and that their focus is, first and foremost, on making the title a great PS3 game.

"The PS3 is a very interesting platform, with a huge potential, even if it isn't very easy to access. There are very few RPGs on this console, and we really think that the fans are waiting for some good games in this genre on PS3. That’s why we decided to take it as our primary platform. The PC came with it when we chose the engine. We decided to use the Phyre Engine from Sony, and the engine works cross platform with the PC," explains Spiders CEO Jehanne Rousseau, "...the PS3 is our reference, and the PC follows.  First and foremost, we want Mars to be a great PS3 game."

Check back later for the full interview, where we talk about the challenges of developing as a new studio, working with the PS3, the combat in action RPGs, and the tentative release date for the title.
