Following the critical praise of Resident Evil 7 for revitalizing the on again/off again franchise, many people were left wondering what will become of the new virus, the new Umbrella, and of course the new Resident Evil. When it was announced that we were not going to get answers to those questions any time soon, but were returning to the past, a lot of people were left confused. With Resident Evil 2 back again in the public eye, we once again have a horror franchise being dragged into the modern era…with some baggage along for the ride.
For this cast, I spoke with Sean and Marina who are the team behind Anodyne and the upcoming sequel Anodyne 2 about design. We started with how the duo met and first developed Anodyne and then talked about everyone’s thoughts on design. For the final part of the cast we spoke more about what’s coming with Anodyne 2.
Toejam and Earl Back in the Groove was a return to the classic franchise by series’ creator Greg Johnson after a successful kickstarter. With the game out, it is a blast from the past, but I feel it may not go far enough to bring in da funk.
