South Park co-creator Matt Stone has admitted he and partner Trey Parker are open to working on a follow-up to the hilariously disgusting Stick of Truth RPG, which released for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 earlier this month.
"We'll see how it's received," he told IGN when asked if the pair would return to script and voice another epic video game. "This was a hellacious undertaking - much more than when we signed up for it," Stone confessed. "Never say never. I would do it again, in some fashion. I think that video games are really interesting."
He went on to explain that it took the creative duo some time to get used to working in games rather than TV, and that it was their desire to tinker and refine the game that led to its delayed launch. "It engages different parts of your brain," Stone said of gaming. "The natural rhythms of comedy that we know pretty well from the TV comedy universe, they're different from a game."
"There was definitely a big learning curve for Trey and I," Stone continued. "We made a lot of mistakes and assumptions. I'll cop to the fact that we retooled stuff that we didn't like and we worked on the game longer than other people would've liked us to."
South Park: The Stick of Truth was well worth the effort though, earning overwhelmingly positive reviews and topping the UK charts on release. It currently has a Metacritic rating of 85.
