In an e-mail interview with Polygon, Tempest called God of War: B is For Boy “an abridged version” of the 2018 game’s story, including “a few familiar items and characters into the environments to allude to other aspects of the tale.” It is not indicated to be a thorough adaptation of God of War, a 20 to 30- hour game, offered its 26- letter constraints.

“My main focus was to try and recreate the same father and son relationship between Kratos and Atreus through their expressions and body language,” Tempest stated. “Kratos has a very different personality in this game, so we needed to avoid the more belligerent facial expressions that are reminiscent of his younger self.”

Tempest stated that the cartoonish B is For Boy is kid-friendly “for the most part,” however that “You may have to cover your kid’s eyes in one or two places to guarantee a completely kid-friendly experience.”

“My art tends to lean towards a more lighthearted and cartoony style, which I do love to juxtapose with more adult-oriented themes,” Tempest stated. “Although gory, the game’s story doesn’t tend to center on that, but instead focuses on the relationship between a father and son (with the gore amplifying the graveness of the tale). The presence of Atreus introduces a sense of innocence that wasn’t present in the original games. I think the light-hearted art style helps to complement that innocence, but contrasts well with the darker moments.”
