A Bluepoint Games staff member revealed a particular way to test the performance of their latest work, the remake of Demon’s Souls. According to Colin Harris, a technical artist at Bluepoint, the team used virtual rubber ducks to put them in various places in the gloomy world of Boletaria.
Harris commented to GamesRadar that all those playful aids were removed when the game was released, but the ducklings had a significant impact on the construction of the new Demon’s Souls.
“They turned out to be the perfect model for testing due to their size and shape. It didn’t hurt a little juxtaposition to see a yellow rubber duck in an incredibly detailed dark environment “
The ducklings were erased from the code for fear that they would appear by accident in the final version. Harris 3D-printed replicas of the cute models and gifted them to each member of the team.
Demon’s Souls is available exclusively for PlayStation 5.
