For this discussion, I spoke with Andrew of Mega Cat Studios to talk about the work their studio does in terms of making and keeping retro games alive.
Retro-styled games are one of the most popular genres for indie developers, and have become a major facet of the indie market. However, so many developers tend to slip on up when it comes to this kind of design, and presents a major trap for new designers to avoid.
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.
This week, David D’Angelo of Yacht Club Games returned to the cast to catch up and talk about designing Shovel Knight and what’s next for our hero.
