I personally feel that characters in games are a lot more important these days than they used to be. Some of the best games out there are character driven games with more and more of them becoming more like interactive films, where players like to connect with the hero/heroine of the game.
There are some games like Mario where he hasn’t really changed all that much over 25 years. He’s still a short, fat Italian plumber that we all love and who gets to save the princess. But what if he changed his image completely and became photorealistic?
Danny ‘Ender’ Martin has been part of the Zath team from pretty much the very beginning since he met Zath himself at Leeds Met University whilst studying Business IT. He’s an avid gamer and a big film buff. Danny graduated from the University of Bradford with a degree in Computer Animation and SFX and now currently works at one of the biggest UK games developers, which will hopefully see some of his ideas hit the gaming world.
