Based in Budapest Puppet animation studio have teamed up with THQ Nordic to create an animated 3D CGI trailer for their new game Destroy all humans! 2 – Redesigned. Destroy all humans! is an open-world action-adventure video game franchise designed as a parody of Cold War-era alien invasion films. In the new game, years have passed since Crypto – who was sent to earth by his superiors to collect DNA locked in human brainstems to save his race from cloning to extinction – defeated Majestic and took control of the US government.
The Puppetworks team, who also produced the trailer for the first Destroy all humans! game, was understandably excited to have another chance at the new one. First, they developed the script, spending time matching the effects with the gameplay, which was a key part of the trailer. One of the challenges of production was the variety of environments needed to bring them together in a cohesive fashion. The team also sought to strike a balance between music and gags so as not to lose the impact of either.
Destruction abounds as Crypto collaborates with Americans in the psychedelic ’60s to take revenge on the KGB for blowing up its mothership. With great chaos and havoc in San Francisco, Tokyo, London, Russia, and the Moon, the new trailer is packed with action, gags, and a bunch of Easter eggs! Crypto has a soundtrack – “Amerika” by Rammstein – that fits perfectly.
Check out the trailer – it’s an awesome example of the power of music and CG imagery – we think they got it right!
