Ratchet and Clank | A Look Back and a Leap Forward by CreatureBox
Ratchet and Clank | A Look Back and a Leap Forward

April is a big month for us. On April 12th, Ratchet & Clank rockets onto the PlayStation 4. And just a couple weeks later, on April 29th, the dynamic duo will find themselves on the big screen in their first feature film. “Surreal” couldn’t even begin to describe it.
 
We’ve been extremely fortunate to be part of the Ratchet franchise from the very beginning. Back then, a small team of scrappy developers set out to introduce a couple new heroes to the PlayStation universe. The production of R&C for the PlayStation 2 was fast paced, unpredictable and in many cases, instinctive. Almost on a subconscious level the team connected with the material and worked tirelessly to bring a memorable, all ages experience to gamers.
 
Fast forward 15 years, and many of those same developers found themselves in a truly unique situation. What if you had an opportunity to re-envision the work: to leverage artistic growth and gameplay experience while broadening the original vision. It’s the closest experience we’ve had to a time machine–sitting beside a younger self re-imagining concepts, while building, refining and expanding the franchise. We had an absolute blast.
 
Ratchet & Clank for PS4 is many things: classic, modern, a graphical powerhouse, a new beginning. But most importantly, to us, the game represents the passion of a dedicated team who wanted to create the absolute best Ratchet experience possible.
 
Alongside the game production, we were equally fortunate to serve as the Lead Visual Designers for the feature film. From day one, the entire movie staff displayed a remarkable desire to embrace the franchise and craft a truly authentic experience. Insomniac was involved each step of the way and everyone joined forces to celebrate the source material. From the humor, the visuals, classic rock star voice cast and galactic action, this was the Ratchet franchise through and through. Watching them on screen was a lot like seeing your best friend get their first big-time acting gig. Yup, “surreal”.
 
So if you’re into style, humor and heart, please help us spread the word. Ratchet & Clank represents a 15-year passion project for us and we can’t wait to see where their next chapter leads.

To all of you who made the Ratchet and Clank movie, seriously, CONGRATULATIONS. If there was still a stereotype about videogame movies not being usually good, you definitely broke it forever.

I'm glad I got an extra big drink and popcorn because ohhhhhh boy it was SO GOOD. Just, everything about it is so wonderful... you've all definitely done the franchise justice. I didn't expect less from Insomniac, but honestly, my childhood is saved. Thank you all.

I really wish the theaters over here treated the movie with more respect, though. They only gave it one session and didn't even announce it, but my friends and I were determined to see it. I hope once they see the HIT this is going to be, they decide to give it more screen time, because I'm pretty sure it'll be a remarkable landmark when it comes to "movies based on videogames".  You just set the standards for the genre... pretty high.
