Uncharted Originally Featured An Underwater Setting
Making a video game is a long, complicated process. Original concepts don't always end up making the cut, even if they're initially approved.
The Uncharted franchise is arguably the best new franchise of the generation; it began with Drake's Fortune back in 2007 - which got nowhere near enough attention due to the small number of PlayStation 3 units in the world - and will continue with Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception on November 1.
Those who did play the first title will remember lush forests, supremely detailed jungle and cave settings, and even a few industrial areas. However, according to Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells, the game was originally going to be very, very different. Yep, it would've taken place in an underwater facility (very much like Bioshock) and in fact, the idea was even accepted by Sony.
Well, things change. The question is, do you think it would've been just as good in the original setting? Or did they make the right move by changing their minds?
