When venturing into the world of Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart in all its regions, players can find a variety of strange collectibles, including a special doll that the developer of the game talked about.
In a new post on the website Insomniac Game thIn it, the developer talked about the history of one of the collectibles that you will find in the game, which commemorates a former employee who used to work for them, Craig Goodman, who worked on the team as a technical artist and died in 2019 due to medical complications caused by brain cancer. This developer has worked on a few team games, including Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart, Song of the Deep, and Marvel’s Spider-Man.
According to the post, Craig and his wife Julianna found a teddy bear in the hospital while they were in their care. They added stitches to his head and sewed a heart onto his chest, which inspired them to create a collectible called Craiggerbear in the game. Goodman left the bear to his children as a reminder of his love for them and his wife. In his memory, Insomniac Games has created a series of bears that can be found throughout Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart as their thanks to the developer.
In the blog post, Insomniac also revealed that in honor of the developer, the company will be offering six collectible Craiggerbears to the PlayStation Stars loyalty program that allows players to collect digital rewards between now and May 31.
Sony will also donate the money to the Starlight Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps children receive basic treatment, and the organization was also chosen by the Goodman family.
