PAX East kicks off this Friday, and some of the biggest names in gaming will be showing off their latest and greatest at the event. Boston-native developer, Irrational Games, will be talking about how "game worlds" can become the "main character".
Creative director Ken Levine and his team: art director Nate Wells, lead artist Shawn Robertson and senior effects artist Stephen Alexander will discuss Bioshock: Infinite's location, Columbia, and how they “arrived on Columbia’s visual design, its inspirations, the overarching creative process and plenty of other topics related to the creation of the world of BioShock: Infinite.”
The first two Bioshock games took place in a massive underwater city called Rapture. In Bioshock: Infinite, Columbia is the main location and is a floating city suspended mid-air by balloons and blimps.
