Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is a 2007 action-adventure game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. It is the first game in the Uncharted series, and was released in November 2007 for PlayStation 3. The game follows Nathan Drake, the supposed descendant of explorer Sir Francis Drake, as he searches for the lost treasure of El Dorado with journalist Elena Fisher and mentor Victor Sullivan.
The development of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune began in 2005, and saw Naughty Dog altering their approach to development, as they sought to create a humanized video game that was distinct from their other entries, settling on an action-adventure game with platforming elements and a third-person perspective. The game was delayed numerous times through its development, as the team regularly updated or wholly changed various aspects related to the story, coding, and the game's design. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is notable for being one of the first video games to feature force feedback vibration, and the development team found influence for many of the game's aesthetic elements from film, pulp magazines, and movie serials.
