Since entering the videogame business, Sony has produced some beloved characters like Crash Bandicoot and PaRappa the Rapper to Nathan Drake and Kratos. Looking to join the ranks of iconic Sony characters is Horizon Zero Dawn’s protagonist, Aloy.
The team at Guerrilla Games gave a lot of thought into crafting the character of Aloy. Not just the way she looks, but her personality, dialogue, skills, and interaction with the world were all given much thought. The result was a character that everyone on the team fell in love with and has quickly been embraced by the gaming community. For a look at the different creative phases Aloy went through and thoughts on designing her, check out the video below.
Horizon Zero Dawn is my most anticipated game this year and Aloy is one of the reasons why. The vibrant, colorful, futuristic world filled with robotic dinosaurs and creatures is unique, along with Aloy and her red hair, tribal wardrobe, and bow and arrow seems like an intriguing protagonist to explore it with.
