'Foo' - Developer interview

by Rainier on June 12, 2003 @ 1:42 p.m. PDT | Filed under Interviews

Set in ancient China, Foo will challenge you and your competitors to enter palaces and temples before dawn, loot them for as much treasure as you can carry, and escape before the sun rises. Before setting out carefully plan what traps to take with you for your unwitting competitors - but beware, the more trap components you take in the less treasure you'll be able to carry out and the slower you'll move and react to the traps set out by other players. Foo is a unique "sneak, steal and trap-em-up" game of malicious pleasure with gameplay summarized as "Thief" meets "Spy vs. Spy", with the general feel of an animated feature crossed with the comical morbidity and brutality of "Itchy and Scratchy." Game Designer and Development Team Leader at IdolFX, Stefan Ljungqvist answers a few questions to shed some light on this rather unknown title.
