Cliff Bleszinski, the former main man at Epic Games, recently stated that the marketing behind the 2011 shooter Bulletstorm was a mistake.
Both Epic and People Can Fly headed the development of the sci-fi experience, but it was the marketing team that decided to sell the game as a crass, violent affair. When he was asked on Twitter about the game’s approach to humor, Bleszinski pointed to its poor marketing.
@taswell promoting crassness was a mistake. Marketing latched onto it; people didn’t see a cool sci fi game, they saw “the dicktits game.”

The conversation between Bleszinski and Giant Bomb’s Ryan Davis started with a discussion on the humor of the Saints Row franchise, and eventually moved toward Bulletstorm.
