Shaun “UNCONKABLE!!!!” Rivera is the associate game director and gameplay design lead for Project L, Riot’s upcoming 2D fighting game. He shares some early insight into the development of Illaoi, an upcoming fighter (or champion, in our game) He says the team is working on a champion that truly speaks to them. The ultimate goal is to have a diverse and inclusive roster where everyone can find a champion. We want players to see a champion in Project L do something they’ve never seen before, and think “Holy shit, they did what? Of course they can do that…” Our goal with each champion is to not just deliver what players expect, but to deliver what they deserve. . . .
