Game development has a certain mystique around it. Hidden behind the doors of large corporations, video games can appear on the market almost magically to fans unbeknownst of the rigorous work they involve.
“Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet,” an Apple TV+ sitcom from the creators of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, pulls the curtain back with a comedic twist. The show debuted Feb. 7, and it revolves around a cast of fictional developers facing the highs and lows of game design when creating an MMORPG.
Although “Mythic Quest” doesn’t dive deep into how games are made, it treats its cast with a relatable tone that anyone with a boss could understand, through disagreements and personality clashes. By doing so, it humanizes the many faces of a development team, from QA testers to creative directors.
“If we had talked about trends that are happening within gameplay, I’m not sure a general audience would understand that,” Ubisoft head of film and television Jason Altman, who pitched the show concept, told The Washington Post. “But if we put it in a fun context, I think it lets people really understand that a little bit better and laugh at it.”
Altman has been a game producer for 15 years, mostly with Ubisoft (who is also behind this show), though he also worked at Activision and a small start-up. He’s produced everything from fighting games to Just Dance, giving him a wide breadth of experience, which he ultimately brings to the show. With video games plunging into mainstream appeal, he felt it was time to introduce game development culture to the big screen.
“Mythic Quest” covers controversies like crunch, gender disparities, toxic communities and problematic monetization. It pokes fun at these issues by making them relatable, like when two male characters return from a convention and come up with a “brilliant” idea, even though a frustrated female lead had voiced it first. In another instance, a character is awoken by a FaceTime call of colleagues shouting at him to come into the office, despite it being 2 in the morning.
