Please enjoy this episode full of PAX East hype that we recorded before they canceled the East Coast. Also: skateboarding in OlliOlli2, French lessons, an MMO memorial to Leonard Nimoy in Star Trek Online, Ironfall: Invasion puts the “gears” and “war” into Gears of War, the Final Fantasy XIV community loses its collective mind over a card game, and we try to uncover the origin of #MetroidMarch. (Spoiler: We invented it.)
We’re joined by Robert Maher and Tyler Bud, developers of the retro sci-fi game, Rex Rocket, to talk about their experience developing the game and reaching new fans via Kickstarter. They discuss how to do a modern take on an old school genre, find the line between “epic” and “too epic,” and reveal their surprising pick for best Mega Man game of all time.
Make sure to check out the game on Kickstarter!
