'Grand Theft Auto 5' vs 'Everywhere': Leslie Benzies' Inspiration for New Project Revealed
Former "Grand Theft Auto" developer Leslie Benzies has made a comeback one year after he left Rockstar Games. Now, he is offering a new game title which he claimed was put together after his controversial split from the video game publisher.
'Everywhere' game project
Benzies, according to Venture Beat, has managed to use his time after leaving Rockstar in a very effective way: establishing his own studio and coming up with the game called "Everywhere." Saying that the game is an ambitious venture for him, Benzies noted that they want to offer something that will suit the changing needs and demands of video game players.
"We're aiming to offer a huge variety of game modes and styles that not only tell our stories but also enable players to live in the identities and adventures they most want to explore," he added. Benzies added that the game they are still finishing will be playable in a variety of consoles as well as on personal computer.
Inspiration for game
Asked what inspired him to work on "Everything," the former GTA developer explained that his keen observation of his environment pushed him to come up with great ideas for the title. He also noted that reality plus imagination helped him a lot.
'GTA 5' comparison
According to Polygon, Benzies also compared "GTA 5" with his new project noting that he used a better technology with Amazon for his new game title dubbed "Everywhere." He also added that this will introduce a new system and service that has not been made possible before for big gaming communities.
"Everywhere" is said to be built on the Lumberyard of Amazon. Benzies explained that his main goal is to make a new platform for players to enjoy games which depict the real and the simulated world.
