We’ve brought in three more developers for the next entry in our new feature series, “Developer Musings”. This week, we have a few words from Ripstone (Knytt Undergroud, Pure Chess), Image & Form (Steamworld series), and Two Tribes (Toki Tori 2, EDGE) as they share some thoughts about the eShops. Head past the break for their comments.

Unsure as to what Developer Musings is about? Check out our first entry here for an explanation.



Circle trying to improve Swords & Soldiers 3D’s frame rate, Super Saucy Sausage Fest DLC a possibility

Swords & Soldiers is a fine game, but the 3DS version was sadly marred by a number of issues. One of these problems, however, could be addressed in the future.

We recently spoke with Ronimo Games about a number of topics including their thoughts on Swords & Soldiers 3D – a port handled by Circle Entertainment. The studio’s Jasper Koning informed us that Circle is “still working to improve the frame rate”, and even more surprisingly, the company is “looking into bringing the DLC expansion ‘Super Saucy Sausage Fest’ to the 3DS.”

We’ll have more from Ronimo this weekend when our full interview goes live.

Update: Developer Jason Cirillo has said on Twitter that the game hasn’t been officially confirmed for 3DS just yet:

Gaijin Games announced its next title “Woah Dave!” – described as a “frantic, score-chasing arcade game” – at PAX East 2014 last week. Fortunately, we can rest easy knowing that the project will be on at least one Nintendo platform.

While conducting an interview, Gamezebo spotted someone from the team “sitting on the floor of the booth with a laptop working on a 3DS version of Woah Dave!”. Gaijin previously hinted at a 3DS version, but this seems to be the closest we’ve come to an official confirmation.

You can find Woah Dave!’s first trailer above.
