The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (@TXChainSalmon) October 19, 2023

Tyler Treese: You guys have the Greg Nicotero CD. How did this collaboration happen? She’s a name. He worked on several great movies and subsequently became the franchise’s first.

Wes Keltner: I worked on this with Greg. What then did it be? We knew we wanted to take a few little characters from the film and that you only need one more amount of time. After Ronnie finally started to write the game, one of my thoughts was that we only have a handfuls now. I want them for how long this is going and what could it be like? Luckily, Ronnie worked directly with Kim Henkel so that she could get on to discussing what new characters were doing.

One of the things I brought up was that we always like working with people who would like to make stuff. This list was really short, and the top of those people who worked for a very successful person. I respect and take time from the work of an actor all that long to the full-time director. That kind of thing was beautiful to me. I thought he would be good for him because it is possible to think how we function and what us think about the different kinds of thinking traits that are being used in his career. It wasn’t quite as long ago that, but I asked if it was something Greg would like to know.

And we introduced it, and I took the call now, so that i began to decide what others would want. It was like a boy in the candy shop for her. I was delighted to introduce the IP and get it with he again, working on it as well which meant creating new leatherfaces. He really tapped into the details of such events as What’s leatherface and why is it so much in his dressery? Because he really understood that character in the film is, in all its own senses of being called on by the butcher to look like an old lady and graceful woman. All those things are characters that Leatherface loves. So that’s where we began in that conversation. And that kind of kick-started the creative discussion.

You have rights to the original film. Many fans requested everything from in-depth, but you have access to this. Restrictions can make you so creative; we see the people do their best while being in a close relationship. When you are thinking about the content and what could be done to add a game, things like this original skin probably wouldn’t have been accomplished without all of your attention; that would change some effect on the rest. How did being forced to be a little more creative and think outside the box changed your approach?

Ronnie Hobbs: As We spoke earlier, we worked very closely with Kim Henkel on almost every aspect of this game. But the biggest area that he used for and was being collaborative over many others included in her novel scene which is what we did when doing it. Obviously, we didn’t want to be so far ahead of the stories about Franklin and Sally. So if you do that story, you know how it ends in the tale right? Isn’t Sally the last to survive? There are all these restrictions that, if we did that movie precisely it would be very limited for us. There’s a certain urgency behind the plot.

And that’s how we created all of the new characters. The families who were around at that time, but regardless of why people waited in the airtime and not longing for one another. So for me, it was an incredible experience to work with Kim and create this whole new family of victims that people have become very much loveable. Just as the girls tell the story about the Flores sisters then I’m afraid he needs just one more person in the world. So that was pretty cool. Kim was basically like, Hey! I have a character bible that is about to be cut from what nobody knows it or anything.

So we read that, and I selected a few characters which they liked the description for them. Finally this time spent working together to visually design their personalities in order make up all its different VO lines; how they move, what kind of actions are they? But we also came up with completely new characters that Kim didn’t just sign off and kindly helped us to finish line but also get on the page. In terms of creativity, we did a whole bunch more creative stuff for this because I felt almost indispensable.

With the Nicotero Leatherface DLC, it’s a big package. The skin is not a name for it, or the signature kill but has an eye on its nose with custom sounds. Will all of the premium content in coming out be these types up-tosh people can expect?

Wes Keltner: I mean, we haven’ten told you what else will be coming along. And out the window, this is one of my highest premiums especially for the amount and work I have done in all that I know it has been many times there when people still want to tell me a question on what surface was you might consider it – not as if they were going to make sure nobody had any problem with them. This time alone, after he finished speaking with Nicotero then would like more than two years’ worth money: those who did so far without experience over some period? We literally had to write out the entire backstory of this version by nature, because I think that he is another complicated character. To bring this complexities to life, you must have some sort of enter the DNA from that character and begin thinking about what makes them tick. How do they want for their dressing up? Why would we all change their clothes into clothing like that… why does it need on Leatherface now every time when everyone else wears same clothes around us?

All these discussions sometimes we had Zoom calls like this, where only I found that stuff and then took the whole week off and left with Greg. My answer was to listen carefully in order as soonas he reached us on our next visit for an hour’-long trip while you were out talking about what is going well! It was so long ago that I created these things. And then selecting the saw and that took lots of research to find what I wanted because, in reality speaking it was more aerodynamic than those which we had known on a trip. That is a model of its kind, which looks more round as it goes. Seeing something that was so much bigger and more blind, the greater we could find out.

I think about it and the saw that we got, is where they found ourselves. This is like a 30s or so tree walk and making up octaves with Ross, our composer; then setting the stage for the game in time for that kind of rock, by discussing how this saw sounds sound. We started to take notes from the Poulan but then captured as well other sim-like bits at the same price…and then trying to get all the more similar structures and any other shrewicum together into another wave/swing unit! We were adding everything we needed to get the exact sound. If they entered a match, would you say that I want people to know Oh it! I want them to hear it and give that visceral response. Once again, it was a lot of work.

And that’s why it is an outstanding skin which has more value than any other one of the products we release. But we want to get out with a punch that lets people know the fact our authenticity counts; and in its work it is great, there are artists who work here. Without help from others of us all but… We insist on what we make to guarantee that anything you look at is a one-to-1 point. If you try to compare our games or other types of content that is available on the market, there’s little chance they will find something with cookies. Everything is always originating and everything suits us perfectly. And that takes skill and time to do it.

One thing I really like was that you guys were so transparent. You’ve laid out and accounted for the money that new characters will cost, which is how much those changes are going to be lost. How important is a community to be transparent for long-term? When a community doesn’t feel like they are being heard or respected, it can go away quickly.

Wes Keltner: Yeah, I mean it’ll be crucial here. We have many meetings in which we talk about community and feelings on the other side, what people are looking for: what they wish to play or what our desire would be like. Also talking about that wishlist as well into where you’re located now? It is very important to us here. That’s a lot of stuff that seems to arise. That is the truth about transparency, though. You say things people don’t want to hear and that’s really hard at all! If you’re truly genuinely transparent like a studio, they won’t say what people aren‘T interested in hearing and even when they go back to it themselves, they get upset about them.

Even if I didn’t write you great news, only hearing half of the story and not even what time we were going to meet at once. That does not mean that there was a lot about us: creating those in charge with our community == persons who are eating well or enjoying things on offer by their own side; neither do they come out complaining for too much? If I only bring you good news, that’s not the full picture. You have to know something. There is bad side, too. It’s not great. We must do that myself! We must say these things. Some people can take that but others don’t.

What’s so interesting about the collab with Greg is how you show up working on these outside legended realities and changing to an extreme horror culture. Have you already talked about some other dream collabs, that would be ideal for people who want to see down the line if things happen?

Ronnie Hobbs: It’ll sound kind of weird, but yeah we have those conversations in the beginning. We were talking to about 10 years from now on and probably had them with me for over a decade ago! So that’s what we always think of: If you take this project two years from now, who are the people which will get involved in it? What can we do with them? Don’t it be so, maybe there are a lot of reactionary things here. We played these games a year or two before we even began to work on them. The same goes for those who might fit well with that project.

So we have our favourite horror celebrities, especially those that are dying to work with us. We’ve already been thinking about the whole world for Texas. I feel like you should be doing that if we don’t want to play catchup. We want to be more aware of this stuff. And yeah, and Nicoteros just one sign of something big on earth. We’ll hit it off when we show them the perfect designs that will help you do it… so this thing happens every now allure to me. I didn’t give anything feedback. It’s perfect. I laughed.

Just about everything in the game lands on Ronnies’ desk for approval. That one was one of the smoothest things that everyone did. But for that reason, when Ronnie and Kim sat down to build the characters in this game; whether it be new killer or new victim of tragedy, those discussions early on will be much more important. No, but who do I have to vote for that? Who is that? Who is going to do this? And sometimes its performance in terms of body, humour or voice. When you are doing a live chat, sometimes it can be great and find someone to do both of these things. You usually have to hire two people. Now youre looking at two people and trying to decide, If I combine these things together? Will it make this character that is right now only a concept in mind?!

You sit with Kim, talk about the character and talk about their background as well. What exactly do you look like? From which part of Texas were they from? There are different accents even inside. When will they learn how to wear clothes, whats their hairstyle and the way does he behave as character? That all ate out and then to go into the concept piece. Now you have this 2D design of a character and there’s no better way to find two humans that take direction, both on body performance as well it sounds like they react right after seeing Kane [Hodder]’S Leatherface or when one another appears. This character moves a mountain for the better, without to make it back into life.

And we can do that on Ronnies shoulders. He gets into the mocap studio every single step, so she yells… Action! That’s what Ronnies came to life. It’s a long process, from being with Kim to playing it in the game. When we first started, that was all two years ago. At the time of beginning I never saw those things happen to life! Well, yeah it’s a massive undertaking! But we dont cut corners. Because of our uniqueness, everyone from every family has their own personality and animation set. They don’t share animations, all of them move differently; they walk or attack differently. Everybody has its own script and their own VO actors which do that. That really afloats you in the space and your body feels something. You’ve got a connection to that character. So again, here are our neighbors who hates ourselves.

I thought that was a good approach. I have found it pretty refreshing, to me you don’t have a giant roadmap which makes up the place where people are being promised all this stuff under the line. You’ve been waiting until closer to when its actually going will be available and the measuredness is what we have done. Could you speak to that approach?

Wes Keltner: What is he never wants to do it, are you taking promises and then something falls across and will not deliver. What I think a lot of people out there like to realize are that so many things not within your control as an artist can cause something bad. You can do everything with your side, but then nothing goes against you. So, let’s get to the bottom of things. Because the majority of other parties support that can now be restored, so should you take back it?

What’ll you do? That will set you back three months and likely 300,000 to 400 million. I can’t wait for this. You promised your DLC cadence and it shows that people are circling on the calendar, but you cannot wait from there to see how long they will last! This is not important because it’s in your control. Now there’s a trust that begins to break up and now youre on the back of my foot trying hard when you say, Oh no. And it has all our partners around us! That was the ones. That isn’t bad. It wouldn’t be good to tell that story.

We find it better to approach this by more artisanal means. Everything we want to build and all of everything that I think is a good idea. We head down and build it till we know that its done, certified whatever the way you do? We checked the box. Now we can show those who come to the game soon. That’s where I think you can get in trouble with that when going to show the same months. While you’re showing a roadmap to them, you could get caught with your pants down in those situations. But we don’t have a 100-man team that can do it like that. It’s a small team, so it’ll have to be the least approach. While we are always looking at something that our know is, we want to do with what you make in the game, so by doing some lifting a veil and showing everything like saying hello. But on this date no matter how much things it will happen already! We know that we can do it all the time so as to get in order. But then it goes somewhere else and is out of control. So that’s the part I do not like to make promise as long ago. We can t keep it, because you break trust and its huge hill trying hard on your player base but give it true.”

Was the play onboarding process too much? How is it trying to balance their pick and murder between victims’ killers in a manner that can be done quickly with both parties.

Ronnie Hobbs: To play a multiplayer game is constant month long, so you try to look at information and figure out whether or not they will play the games on that point. Most of the time, it’s just not true. He came over. People are people. The beauty of our games is because AI does not matter and a lot more unpredictable things happen. That’s why our game is replayable with all the diverse killer, all driven by people and their emotions. Go back to your first tutor’s place. We put in some tutorials, but we didn’t have a single player to play your hand. We design our games so they don’t just be linear in that you can go out and make mistakes; learn on the fly. Learning without a skill is the best way. That’s a design approach we have used for the future. If you were in the worst situation, we’d like to give him more options than true life. Many natural thinking occur in the player’s life, so we don’t need to let them focus on only basic basics of survivability. You have a door, can’t get it? Oh, there’s a girl running me. I had better run. There’s a shadow. I better get into it.

The multiplayer has its fundamental emotion that drives our gameplay, even on Friday 13th. That kind of doesn’t bother to take care. Unless we speak about rewards and how to improve them, or how they learn. This is another area we try to concentrate on. But the premise is that people understand it because it’s natural to do something like being scared and trying hard. With respect to relatives and victims, we’ve actually seen a lot of data that fluctuates. For whatever reason, we think people are changing size because they want a new experience or their better-being at victims less quickly than the more experienced and efficient they get on that. So we look at all the data in real time and that is not just for any multiplayer game. We imagine it would go on until the end of time, trying to buck this side and reduce some more people than you will; add up something here as necessary or do whatever else needs. As far as we can move forward, it’s our goal to keep the two sides presenting something new.

Wes Keltner: It could also ebber and flow in the life of an organization. The teer-toatter begin to look like the man’s feet were higher. Then sometimes, it can bounce around with players skill and hours played if no new character comes out theres many variables that must become stuck in that start to change this. We don’t want to grab the balance knob and crank it up. Were making subtle movements, because it looks like ripples in the pond? These waves are getting stronger. If it continues, you should make progress. While we see and look at that data, some of those things seem to shift a lot over time.

Now it’s not a great idea to have someone say something and ask for another moment. Let me just grab the knob and turn it around, then crank it up! That’s one of the most likely causes for a lot more instability. To do what Ronnie said, one thing we always talk about here is that when you were growing up might be too young to watch horror or maybe just not much better. You would have liked to go out and watch a horror movie and your credits are rolling so you turn over and look at each other then they say; Well man… what would’ve been for? We play games that answer the question. How is this horror treated to? I’m saying that, without a tutorial you won’t have an awful experience to make up. We try to question that each human asks, and we use our games so as a tool for you.

It seems that horrors underestimated all the time, both in cinema and gaming – but fans always go out of pocket. It is always supporting around the genre. Did you know about the level of loyality in that fanbase since a huge, dedicated crowd?

Ronnie Hobbs: One thing you have every year – the sci’fi and horror always being an independent actor. Even though Star Wars is popular, it still gets the respect that dramas give to them. Horror never gets what dramas do. Since the sci-fi nerds which Im one and horror people get kickede into something, right? They aren’t taken seriously. In games the same thing happens. The same thing happens everywhere in the media. But one thing, because the people of that industry were a part and who knew how hard they are; we also knew them by themselves as loyal. All the horror conventions, all live by the back of fans who come and buy their favorite names.

I always look for the two as sci-fi and horror. But we knew that before he started making Friday 13th. We knew that they were part of this group. We know those fans are loyal. Now our games are introducing new people to horror and they come on board. People who hate horror spend a lot of time on our games because we’re making them approachable. We can have fun playing and live for just two minutes. Our time has the pleasure to go, but it was really scary! People who don’t even like horror play our games now, and that is the goal. I think that it was the same reason people watch horror films during Halloween. They want to be afraid, but only during a few minutes. So that’s our approach.
