South Park: The Stick of Truth team had to cut down on 850-page script, might be included in DLC
Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park series, said that games with massively open-worlds inspired them to make South Park: The Stick of Truth more like Skyrim or The Legend of Zelda.
“I really loved playing Skyrim, as many people did,” Parker said during a Comic-Con panel today. ”
He also said they were urged to “cut it down, cut it down, cut it down,” and “that everyone kept saying to us [make that extra content] DLC” — drawing jeers from the crowd — “and I agree… fuck that.”
It’s not rare that factors like money or time force the hands of developers and sometimes this will be reflected in a bad structured game, but we hope this is not the case for South Park: The Stick of Truth.
