Re-awakening a Classic: Prince of Persia: A Case Study,

Production, Lecture

Yannis Mallat
Executive Producer, Ubi Soft Entertaintment
While still beloved by many, the Prince of Persia franchise was to be buried into oblivion when one up-rising studio started to blow off the dust. Lying below were tremendous efforts of a team, confidence & doubts under pressure, clear goals & fuzzy means, creation & multi-platform production management and the most humane adventure epic. Therefore, the Flame could light the Shadow for good.

How did we approach such a license? How, from deep within the concept, can we guarantee a game that is deserving of the original legacy? And how to ensure the success of 15-years; could it really survive the technology?

The session shares how the Prince of Persia team overcame these challenges, while keeping a backbone methodology and production process. Maintaining the right balance of creation versus production is among the answers.
