Examining FusionFall at GDC '08
Samurai Jack is my hero.
The Escapist takes a good look at Cartoon Network's FusionFall at this year's GDC.
"I've worked at Cartoon Network for eight years," said Chris Waldron, FusionFall's executive producer, "and this game has been my dream for quite a while now."
