Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is the first game in the Uncharted series, and follows Nathan Drake, the supposed descendant of the explorer Sir Francis Drake, as he seeks the lost treasure of El Dorado, with the help of 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. It was subsequently 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 esthetic elements from film, pulp magazines, and movie serials.
Extensively marketed as a PlayStation exclusive, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune received generally favorable reviews from critics, many of whom cited its technical achievements, voice acting, characters, story, musical score, attention to detail and its high production values, similar to that of summer blockbuster films, though some were critical of the graphical issues, length, vehicle sections, and marked difficulty. The game went on to sell one million copies after its first ten weeks of release, and helped propel Naughty Dog to the forefront as a video game developer. It was followed by a sequel titled Uncharted 2: Among Thieves in 2009, and was re-released on PlayStation 4 as part of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.
