ICO It is considered one of the great PS2 classics, but the game didn’t hit the shelves until after a lot of struggle in its development. Now, to celebrate 20 years since the game’s release – which happened on December 6, 2001 – the developers of genDESIGN have released for the first time a video demonstrating the concept of ICO At the beginning of its creation.
The video below was supposed to have been produced in 1998 for internal use, in order to show team members the concept of character design and animation.
You can see that the video was not created with the intention of showing it to an audience, as many random CG scenes were mixed in with varying quality and unedited noise. It’s really interesting to notice the differences in the graphics, because they remind us of that ICO Its development began on the first PlayStation, before moving work to be released on PS2.
The team behind gendesignIt is often called a team ICO It is precisely because of this game that it is responsible for the great classic game shadow of the Colossus as well as by The last guard. They are currently working on a new game, like Already revealed, but we still don’t have any information on what to expect from this next title from the developers.
It is not currently possible to buy ICO On official Sony platforms on their modern consoles the traditional way.
