Griefed Interviewcast – Pwnee Studios on Cloudberry Kingdom

{0 Comments}

Masochistic platformers have been some of the best indie games in the last couple years. Pwnee Games is bringing us one of the most promising we’ve seen in a long time. Cloudberry Kingdom is fully randomized and has carnage for up to four players. They boast more possible levels than particles in the universe thanks to the algorithm created by Jordan Fisher. Tigs and I got the chance to play it a little while ago and it was a lot of fun. We got the chance to talk with Jordan and business and marketing head honcho at Pwnee Michael Suswal and hear about how this project came to be and some exciting places it’s going.

Since getting hacked a week ago I haven’t had a credit card to buy new games. Thus leaving me to dive back into my back catalog of random purchases through the years, some of which got little love. I found two such games the other day Bully: Scholarship Edition from Rockstar Games  and The Bourne Conspiracy from High Moon Studios (the folks that brought us War for Cybertron) and published by now defunct Sierra.

Nyan Cat Fever: Exclusive interview with 21st Street Games

{2 Comments}

Cats are an integral part of our shared internet heritage. One developer here in New York City has been doing their darndest to make some of the craziest cat related games that you can imagine. 21st Street Games’ first foray into felines was Techno Kitten Adventure. Like Robot Unicorn Attack there are addictive techno songs that make you giggle as much as tap your foot. It’s single touch and relies more on navigating through a maze of stars, hearts, submarines and just about anything else you can imagine. Oh and also the screen will pulse, flash, flip, reverse and occasionally shoot a rainbow or two just to mess with you. Nyan Cat Adventure which is coming to iOS today after being a bestseller on Xbox Live Indie Games is a deeper side scrolling platformer. It does however share the simular trapping of Techno Kitten being deceptively simple and then finding a way to grief you. From there Nyan  I got to sit down and touch with Creative Director Brian Ferrara and the Head of Marketing Melissa Fassetta. That got to give me the inside scoop on what it was like making a game for one internet’s favorite cats. I also get a very special exclusive that some other internet cat is going to having a game from them very soon. Hmmm now who could that be? Enjoy the interview and be sure to check on Nyan Cat Adventure on iOS the lite is free the whole game only sets you back .99 cents. Techno Kitten also has a new expansion that for iOS users is .99 cents (feat. pop artist Ron English). I

The transcript and entire audio version can also be found down below after the jump.
