However, that's never the case. There were several challenges when proving out the creative vision on 'Marvel's Spider-Man'. This talk will discuss three major hurdles and how Insomniac Games overcame them in order to hit the creative/narrative goals that were set for the game.


Through 'Marvel's Spider-Man', attendees will gain better insight on some of the major challenges that face developers when proving their creative vision early on and strategies on how to overcome those challenges.
