Shows the words, "Halo: Reach" which soon fades to the words "ViDoc: Zugzwang Evolved."
0:14 - Joseph Tung: We definitely talked about wanting to do something really different for this game, and to give people things that they’ve never seen before.
0:13 - Luke Smith: Us designers were often tasked with this really difficult problem of inventing fun.
0:30 - Luke Timmins: One of things we really struggled on was, was the tactical intricate game which, which, we were trying to improve that bridge. The next level, we went back, we spent months looking at, you know, trying to go back through time about what really represented the things that we wanted to bring to the game.
1:00 - Ben Thompson: It takes a strategy component and introduces it to the Halo universe that we really haven’t done in the past.
1:07 - Mike Zak: We’ve made a number of, sort of, big changes.
1:11 - Rick Lico: And this is all part of our new paradigm. It’s, it’s, ah, it’s all from the ground up, it’s all new.
1:15 - Tyson Green: They’ve been really just driving us from day one. It kinda spawned out of this, like, what can we do with Halo that has not been done before?
1:24 - Luke Smith: We’ve heard you, we’ve reacted, we’ve listened, and now what we’re doing is we’re bringing chess... to Halo.
1:35 - Jon Cable: Chess is the longest running competitive multiplayer game in the world and I don’t see why, uh, our version can’t contain that legacy.
1:43 - Tyson Green: Obviously, they’re doing something right, that, they’ve got this game, that doesn’t really have any options, and… why don’t we give it a try?
1:50 - Ben Thompson: We tried to give them each weapons that really correlated to the purpose of that particular unit. You are restricted to the moves each of the characters can do.
1:59 - Steve Scott: Everybody brings a little bit of a different perspective, a different experience to the table. If it’s a good idea, we just say, absolutely, let’s change direction, let’s go with that!
2:08 - Luke Smith: We wanted to figure out something that you could do, sort of bring fun back to Halo.
2:14 - Tyson Green: Chess is about the kind of oldest Slayer there is.
2:17 - Ben Thompson: You start off as the Monitor and you’re ready to make your move. You go down and you pick that piece and then you are actually put into that character, you are able to control that character.
2:27 - Marcus Lehto: That, to me, was one of those things that, uh, sparked a little bit of life in the game.
2:34 - Luke Timmins: I’m excited to see how it turns out, I’m really excited, but… I don’t know, whatever, every game, you think you’re doing the right thing then it turns out you fucked everything up.
