Recognizing the Filipino artists that worked on Uncharted 2 and 3
by Gerard Martin Cueto on 09/21/12 10:58:00 pm

The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community.
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.

 

It's no secret that the Uncharted series developed by Naughty Dog has been one of the best games this generation. Nathan Drake's adventures has also been a hit with gamers in the Philippines, and the November 2011 release of Uncharted 3 was highly anticipated in our shores. A lesser known fact about the Uncharted games though is that Filipino development studios did art outsourcing work for Uncharted 2 and 3.

Philippine-based studios Ladyluck Digital Media and Studio of Secret 6 were credited in Uncharted 3 (Ladyluck also worked on Uncharted 2), under studios that did art outsourcing for the game. The websites for the said studios also lists Uncharted 2 and 3 under their studio portfolio. Similarly, character artist Ronald "ra-gevz" Gebilaguin also lists Uncharted 2 and 3 under his resume.

I took images of Uncharted 3's end credits, wherein the names of Philippine-based studios and artists are listed, together with the type of work that they did for the game. Congrats to the developers and I hope they get to work on more AAA games in the future.

Thank you for writing this post. I used to work in LDM, and I know those guys who were part of the Uncharted team.
