Producer, Dan Sochan, speaks extensively with God Is A Geek about Sleeping Dogs.
Revealing the details to the upgrade system, he says, “At the end of each mission you get a score; a cop score, or a Triad score, depending on how you’ve played the mission … but if you shoot and kill a bunch of innocent civilians, you lose cop points. We give you style points on the Triad side if you use a variety of different martial arts, [if you] use the environmental props [like] grabbing a guy, putting his face into a grill – all those things give you additional points. You then use those points to upgrade your player…”
Sochan also discusses some of the game’s voice talent, including Tom Wilkinson, Emma Stone and Lucy Liu, and talks about the setting of Hong Kong, “We’ve got gambling dens, different varieties of stores you can enter … key places like clubs and bars … massage parlours. So there’s a lot of different things for the player to explore and check out and we’ve really tried to capture that essence of Hong Kong. So things like cock fighting, offshore gambling dens, poker mahjong, karaoke; things that people would expect to see in Hong Kong, we’ve brought those into Sleeping Dogs.”
