Naughty Dog's panel at PAX East 2010
offered attendees a fairly in-depth look at how the studio created each level in Uncharted
and Uncharted 2
. One important aspect of the series' level design is, of course, coming up with a clever name for each chapter -- a task assigned to lead designer Richard Lemarchand.
Unfortunately, "the Man" occasionally prevents Lemarchand from putting certain chapter titles in the game, keeping Uncharted 2's
original train segment title card (pictured above) out of the final version. Curse you, unseen managerial powers-that-be!
