Hollywood director Frank Coraci will direct Gaming Corps The Descendant
Frank Coraci are directing the fifth and last part of the Gaming Corps game series The Descendant. The episode will be released before the end of the year.
Frank Coraci is the director of comedies like Around the World in 80 Days, The Wedding Singer and The Waterboy and several other popular comedies, often starring Adam Sandler. Now he is in the Gaming Corps studio for work on The Descendant. This is Frank’s first assignment in the gaming industry.
“I have always seen films as the most efficient and technically most advanced way of telling a story, but gaming is fascinating as it is interactive and if you can only find a way of lifting the drama, increasing the tension and the total emotional link to the same level as films, then we have the future of storytelling,” says Frank.
“When I met Jens (Klang) and Nicklas (Dunham) (both at Gaming Corps) it dawned on me that they also have the same vision; lifting gaming to the next emotional level and we have searched for the right project until now.”
The Descendant is a post-apocalyptic adventure game which takes place in an underground facility after global warming destroys the Earth. It is the company Gaming Corps’ first project. Three parts have been released until now and the fourth and fifth will be released during the year.
“Frank made an exclusive film for Netflix last year and it is already their most viewed film ever. He has an incredible capacity to tell exorbitantly popular stories and I am convinced that he can transfer this to the gaming format,” says Magnus Kolaas, CEO of Gaming Corps.
