Creating the real-world versions of Sunset Overdrive weapons

A lot of intense design work went into the making of Sunset Overdrive for Xbox, making it that much more satisfying to recreate these digital weapons in the real world. Not only did Figure Plant have to match the look of the game, each piece had to be functional! With names like TNTeddy, Hack N Slay, Pyro Geyser, and the Roman Candle Gun you can imagine the kind of fun challenges we were up against.  Here’s a few shots from the studio.
