This week on the cast I spoke with CEO of Abylight Studios Eva Gaspar and designer on Super Hydorah Alberto “McAlby” to talk about how the studio is working on creating modern retro games with Locomalito.
We started off talking about the state of the Game Industry in Barcelona, and how Abylight got started. From there, we discussed the challenges of designing games in a classic style while still adhering to modern markets. Unfortunately, Locomalito and Gryzor87 couldn’t make it to the cast, but we talked about working on Super Hydorah and more. For our last topic, we spoke briefly on porting these games to other platforms and the challenges thereof.
