Valve Reveals What Went Into The Making Of Team Fortress 2's 'Meet The Medic'

"Meet the Medic", the eighth and penultimate video in Valve's "Meet the Team" shorts was a long time a-comin'. Why the long wait between "Meet the Spy" and the video introducing Team Fortress 2's Medic class?

Well, Valve scrapped (at least) two previous attempts at "Meet the Medic", one that involved the doctor coming back from an extended holiday and one that sounded more like "Meet the Medigun". The Team Fortress 2 developer explains in a "behind the scenes" look at the Medic class' video the difficulties in bringing this support-based character to the forefront.

The Team Fortress blog has some never before seen (outside of Valve) animatics from previous stabs at "Meet the Medic", walking us through the though processes that made the movie finally happen - and why that severed Spy head was in his fridge.

    The spy head in the fridge, the "no they don't" whisper and the "I have no idea" cry were some of my favourite moments in the short, but the entire video was full of win.
    I look forward to seeing more of the story behind it.
    Lets just hope they don't struggle too much on the "Meet the Pyro" video, I can imagine having an essentially mute character describe himself would be challenging.


      Well they do say 'actions speak louder than words'. Lets hope the Pyro lets his actions speak for him :)

      Personally, I'm hoping that we'll actually see the Pyro unmasked and that he turns out to be a refined gentleman of discerning taste... Who then goes out and torches people with his flamethrower.

        hahaha that was excellent

    nobody going with the Samus take on pyro? :P

    personally chances are pyro will resemble something closer to a metal head, with long hair, just by going with its taunts :P

    I thought they had comfirmed Pyro to be a woman awhile ago? Did I dream that up or something?
