South Park: The Fractured But Whole's franchise plan

Even though it might not seem like it given the show's intentionally crappy art style and crude humor, each episode of South Park has a lot of thought put behind it, especially when it comes to the writing and timing for the various jokes.

Now imagine how complicated things get when you have to retain the show's quality and still somehow make all of it into an entertaining game that can last upwards of 10 hours, longer than an entire season of the show! If your imagination is a bit faulty due to the summer heat, however, here's the most recent South Park: The Fractured But Whole development video with Trey Parker and Matt Stone discussing how the game slowly took shape:

 

While I'm still not happy the development of The Fractured But Whole went from Obsidian to Ubisoft, it does seem like the series is in good hands, at least from the few clips they have shown so far. The characters looks exactly like they do in the show, the writing is spot on, and the developers use sentences such as "I think we've figured out a good time fart system, yeah".

Whether its an actually enjoyable game or not, we won't have to wait too long to find out as The Fractured But Whole is arriving for the PC, Xbox One and PS4 on December 6.
