Zum 20. Firmenjubiläum hat Insomniac Games' CEO Ted Price ein wirklich cooles Musikvideo gemacht, das die Firmengeschichte in musikalischer Form wiedergibt.

20 Jahre sind eine beachtliche Zeit für einen Spiele-Entwickler. Vor allem heute, wo Indie-Studios nur so aus dem Boden wachsen und wenige große Publisher sich den AAA-Markt teilen. 20 Jahre durchhalten zu können, ist für einen Spiele-Entwickler also bereits eine große Leistung, vor allem, wenn das Portfolio nur so vor ikonenhaften und beliebten Spielen strotzt. Mit der Spyro-, 'Ratchet & Clank'- und Resistance-Reihen kann sich Insomniac Games auch brüsten, wesentlich zur kontemporären Spielekultur beigetragen zu haben. Das 1994 gegründete, und in Burbank, Kalifornien ansässige Entwicklerstudio hat derzeit auch alle Hände voll zu tun. Es wird mit Hochdruck am 'Xbox One'-Exklusivtitel Sunset Overdrive gearbeitet.

Lange war Insomniac Games ein enger Partner von Sony und Naughty Dog, und ähnlich dem 'The Last of Us'-Entwickler, waren die Spiele von Insomniac Games zumeist Sony-exklusiv. Dies änderte sich erst mit dem weniger erfolgreichen Fuse.

Dennoch hatte CEO Ted Price die Zeit, dieses wirklich coole Musikvideo zum Jubiläum zu drehen.

Hier noch die Lyrics, für diejenigen unter euch, die mitrocken wollen:

20 years ago, when grunge was born we opened our doors.
Spyro got us rolling. Building our tools. Dragons were cool.
Ratchet came along. Bitchin' guns. Man it was fun.
Resistance took us farther. A little bit darker.
By the way we killed Hale.
We killed Hale.
He's dead. Oh!

See the blood, the sweat, the tears.
We're making your games. We're making your games.
Fueled by Diet Coke and beer.
We're making your games. We're making your games.
Come on take a look inside.
We're making your games. We're making your games.
Join us on a crazy ride.
We're making our games. We're making our games.
For you!

Hold up, Ted. That's in the past.
I'm aghast at the vast accolades we've amassed.
But now is now. And we move fast.
Always go Ford - we built to last.
No filter pass, so we keep it raw.
Killin' it daily - dodge the law.
Sign NDAs for what you saw.
Future so fly it is KA-KAAAW!
Sunset Overdrive is on the rise.
It's a lot a bit crazy as the name implies.
Got style and madness only we devise.
Engagin' us more than the Enterprise
We beyond the skies. That's no surprise.
We got Outernauts - on phone device.
That's just the start of what we mobilize
A snippet of our goods like circumcise.
New intellectual properties.
That's one of our core philosophies.
Try to ask what they are we'll bob and weave.
Find out for yourself like Socrates.
Candelabra, please! Let's light the fire.
Benefits for a King - screw the squire.
Medical, dental, vision and retire.
Even LTD if the sitch is dire.
Got a studio in Durham - a new addition.
Still make great games, less smog emission.
On top of that - fully stocked kitchen.
Limitless muffins? That's straight bitchin'.
But now we switchin' back to the start.
Who we do it all for is the main part
Of who we are. Fans are the heart.
Plus mind and body. That's straight Descarte.
So, we goin' into Overdrive just for you.
We've made a few mistakes, but we're plowing through.
Cuz we grew up slew and now we brew what's new.
Don't sleep on us. Ted, that's your cue.

See the blood, the sweat, the tears.
We're making your games. We're making your games.
Fueled by Diet Coke and beer.
We're making your games. We're making your games.

Come on take a look inside.
We're making your games. We're making your games.
Join us on a crazy ride.
We're making our games. We're making our games.
For you!
