Former creatives of Disney Infinity have confirmed to Kotaku that during at least one year they were working on a space adventure of Toy Story, although in Disney they chose to park the project aside and dedicate resources for other titles. The beginning of this game goes back to the year 2009, when the Avalanche Software team worked on Toy Story 3 for multiple platforms.
” Star Command is the name that was received in the beginning, “you have confirmed to creative who worked on this project. The game was born as an expansion of Toy Story 3 and ended up becoming a full-fledged sequel. During 2010 he was working on the production of this action. Adventure story in third person that would lead some of the characters of the universe Toy Story to explore the stars in the company of Buzz Lightyear.
Interestingly much of what I have learned in This project resulted in Disney Infinity. ” We were testing many ideas during the development of Toy Story 3 ” comments this anonymous creative. ” This title was essentially two games in one. The ‘movie’ version for which Disney was known and on the other hand, its ‘Toy Box’ version that was the test towards that new open-world experience ” That would eventually lead to the birth of Infinity.
There would be a variety of worlds, with fairytale planets, pirates or toys from the 80s. Up to four creatives who wanted to preserve anonymity have offered details about Star Command, which would basically allow us to explore a great variety of worlds where we would overcome challenges in the form of combats, minigames and exploration. With Buzz Star Commands as protagonists, we talk about planets with themes as different as a pirate setting, which would have led us to explore the seabed, or even a world of “fairytale” or other town by action toys of their own. the 80s, like He-Man or Thundercats “. Apparently there will be options to build and improve the scenarios.
What led Disney to cancel the project? The creatives of Avalanche emphasize that the workload was very high. They constantly had to focus their attention on video games based on the new films from the Disney Factory, and even then the team was still willing to develop this interesting Star Command. In 2010, the editor made two suggestions: on the one hand to create a video game based on the use of toys, which made more sense after the great success of Skylanders, and on the other, to incorporate the action of Star Command to characters from other Disney franchises. This led to the development of Disney Infinity.
