[Full Interview] DarkSeas Games talks Road Redemption, the future of Wii U, more

You already saw snippets of this interview in the Road Redemption preview we put up earlier today, but in case you wanted to hear more about the subjects I touched on there, or a few other Nintendo-specific topics, I’m posting the full interview in straightforward question-and-answer form below.
The developer of Road Redemption (DarkSeas Games) talked with me about developing the game, what sorts of modes might be included, and the possibility of downloadable content, but they also touched on some more general subjects like the future of Nintendo and the Wii U, as well as how they believe Nintendo could kickstart sales of the system. Hit the break for the full interview!
[Preview] Looking ahead to ‘Road Redemption’ (Wii U, 2014)
Posted on 4 years ago by Austin(@NE_Austin) in Features, Interviews, Previews, Wii U, Wii U eShop | 1 Comment | 0 Likes
Amidst the flurry of charming and pleasant indie titles making their way to the Wii U eShop as an effect of Nintendo’s strong interest in the independent community, one game exists that brands itself neither charming nor pleasant: The high speed brawler Road Redemption is based off of a 1991-1999 video game series called “Road Rash”, and it’s coming to PC, Mac, Linux, and Wii U in the second half of 2014. But what’s the game actually about?
“It’s all about motorcycle combat racing.”, the developer DarkSeas games told me in an interview, ”So imagine you’re playing an action game like God of War or Zelda: Twilight Princess, but moving at 100mph.”
Well. That sounds pretty awesome.
[Interview] ‘A Hat in Time’ developer talks the decline of 3D “collectathon” platforming, whether his game will come to Wii U, more

Earlier this week I learned of a game.
I was scouring the internet for any sign of the dead 3D exploration platforming genre to no avail, and I turned to reddit to have a discussion on the topic, asking for any games people knew of that fit the bill. The response was pretty sizeable.
I was recommended games from Cave Story to Shadow Complex, Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts to Prince of Persia; none of these games quite scratched the itch I had though. There was always something “off” about them, either gameplay-wise or artistically. Perhaps they were too linear, or didn’t feature enough backtracking; maybe the atmosphere was closer to a Saturday morning cartoon than a charming game of the N64 era– each one had some different “flaw”. The point is that after ten hours, I figured that maybe the genre was dead, and I was looking for something that wasn’t there. Apparently developers had simply abandoned the genre overnight, and now a former industry staple was nowhere to be found.
[Interview] The last ZombiU interview you’ll see before launch
Posted on 5 years ago by Austin(@NE_Austin) in Features, Interviews, Podcast Stories, Previews | 0 comments | 0 Likes
There are a lot of Wii U launch games coming out on Sunday, but none of them are quite as hotly anticipated as Ubisoft Montpellier’s ZombiU. This isn’t necessarily because we all think it looks incredible (which, admittedly many of us do), but there’s a certain excitement surrounding it that isn’t present when talking about New Super Mario Bros. U or Scribblenauts Unlimited. It’s a new IP, for one, but it’s also a return to the survival horror styles of yesteryear, and it uses the Gamepad more interestingly than any other launch title, bar none.
Even if you forget about all of that, though, the concept alone might be enough to call ZombiU the zombie game we’ve been dreaming about for years.
[Nintendo Everything Interview] – “Junction Point’s Paul Weaver explains why Epic Mickey is so magical”, and other magical discussions
Posted on 5 years ago by Austin(@NE_Austin) in Features, Interviews | 0 comments | 0 Likes
I just now realized that I’ve interviewed this guy before. It was way back in November of 2010, just before the first ‘Epic Mickey’ launched. I asked him if an ‘Epic Mickey’ game would land on 3DS in the future, and he told me that it was “too early to say”.
I wonder if he was lying and they had actually already planned out Power of Illusion…
So, there I was once again, sitting in my imaginary room waiting to imaginarily interview someone, pretending it was in-person instead of via email. The subject this time around? Mr. Paul Weaver from Junction Point. I’ve actually interviewed Paul before, but it was so long ago that I wasn’t even doing this “pretend I’m interviewing them live” thing. It was just straight Q&A, IGN-style.
Boring, am I rig–
Before I could finish the thought, Paul entered the room. I was pretty excited to get the chance to talk to him– primarily because I had gotten such pleasure out of playing Junction Point’s last game, “Epic Mickey”– and I didn’t waste too much time with formalities before getting right into the hard-ball, tough-as-nails questions about how amazing I think their games are:
Nintendo Everything interviews Broken Rules – Chasing Aurora, possible follow-up, piracy, and more
Posted on 5 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, Interviews, News, Wii U | 0 comments | 0 Likes
Some of the Wii owners out there may remember Broken Rules for its creative and stylish WiiWare title, And Yet It Moves. Fortunately, the studio is back with a brand new game, this time for Wii U: Chasing Auoura.
We recently caught up with Broken Rules’ Martin Pichlmair to find out more about the upcoming eShop game. Pichlmair was able to discuss the origins of the project, confirmed Off-TV Play, hinted at a possible sequel for Wii U, and more.
Aside from Chasing Aurora and Wii U, Pichlmair commented on why Broken Rules has focused on 2D games, commented on piracy, and even explained how the studio picked the URL for its website!
Head past the break for the interview.
