ArenaNet’s Cinematics team lead Matthew Oswald shared a little behind the scenes information for the Super Adventure Box. Their design philosophy is based on classic video game advertising. This game looks like an old version of the “Super Adventure box.” So they created a game called rytlock`s critter rampage.
Originally, they just wanted to build out a couple sprites to fake the game in After Effects, but one of the cinematic artists on his team (Delly Sartika) has long harbored an interest in building his own retro platformer, so he volunteered to build out a playable version of their totally fake game.
The version that you see in the commercial was just the first draft. It took Delly about three weeks of work to flesh out the final version. Without further ado, Matthew Oswald presented the fully realized vision of Rytlock’s Critter Rampage, which he invites you all to play. Good luck, and try not to smash your keyboard in a fit of rage.
