Candygun has revealed some info about the making of its upcoming thief-em-up, Dollar Dash.
Dollar Dash is a downloadable multiplayer title with a Bomberman vibe in which players battle it out over piles of cash, with game modes including Save the Safe and Hit ‘n Run.
In addition to this weapons and items can be customised for each map, allowing players to specify exactly what they want to play with.
Andreas Hackel, art director at Candygun, told the EU PlayStation Blog (don't worry it's coming to XBLA too), “Late last year, we were gathering ideas and prototypes in preparation of creating our next game.”
“There was one idea we really liked: a fast-paced multiplayer sneaking game about a group of safe-breakers that sneak past cameras, laser barriers, and guards to pull off the ultimate heist.”
“In our earliest prototype, the goal of the four players was to pick locks and break walls in order to reach the vaultand grab all the money inside before one of the other players could.
There was one element in this early prototype that was really fun: You could set up bear traps that would snare other players, slowing them down and causing the guards to catch them.”
Around the same time, we were also playing a lot of Bomberman in the office. And its brand of pick-up-and-play fun and multiplayer battles was something we wanted in our game, too.
So we decided to re-think the game from scratch, stripping out complicated concepts like guards and surveillance cameras and focusing on one basic idea: thieves stealing money and attacking other players.
