Double Fine, headed by Tim Schafer (Grim Fandango, Monkey Island, Brutal Legend, Psychonauts), host a web series where they interview developers about a certain game they made in retrospect. This week, they invited Patrice Desilets to discuss two titles.

The first was The Sands of Time:

The second is Assassin's Creed II:

Interesting bits in both games. Assassin's Creed II like the Sands of Time was made over 24 months. Assassin's Creed I went into development immediately after The Sands of Time, with Desilets having no involvment in either Prince of Persia sequel.

Patrice Desilets also likes the Sands of Time movie (and I kind of agree with his reasoning) and wonders if he'll get tickets to the premiere of the Assassin's Creed Movie?

And some info for his new game, time lapses and drinking water mechanic. Oh and the hunting system was always his idea... Probably would have been done much better if he was in charge.

Interesting info about the wilderness stuff from ACIII, I guess it makes sense now why the kingdom in AC1 was so empty, they couldn't realize it on time for the launch.
