PlayStation Releases Documentary Celebrating 30 Years of Naughty Dog
A documentary has been unveiled by Sony’s PlayStation division highlighting the illustrious career of Naughty Dog, the developer which has brought us the likes of Uncharted, The Last of Us, Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter.
The 50-minute documentary explores the developer’s humble beginnings in the industry, from amateur text-based adventures created on original Apple Mac desktops through to the blockbuster, big-budget action titles they have now become known for.
It’s fascinating to see how Naughty Dog, now widely considered one of the very best development teams in the entire gaming industry, eventually settled into their groove and brought us incredible releases such as Uncharted 2 and The Last of Us. The documentary shows how Crash Bandicoot, which was only created by six people, planted the seeds for the developer before they moved on to bigger, brighter things.
The documentary features commentary from Naughty Dog’s co-founders Andy Gavin and Jason Rubin, alongside other well-known faces in the industry from the PS4’s lead architect Mark Cerny, through to the hard-working team behind the dev’s greatest hits.
