Runner3

Yesterday, the latest blog post for Runner3 was published on the game’s official website. This time around, it’s Jason Cirillo who wrote a few words, in order to talk about… the retro challenges!

Here’s an excerpt:

This time around, I’m absolutely thrilled to be hard at work on Runner3. The last time I worked on a Runner game with a numeral in it, it was Runner2. There, a big part of my job was designing the look and feel of the Retro Challenges. Well, I guess my work wasn’t a total disaster, because I’ve been asked to design the Retro Challenges yet again.

For those of you who don’t know, (which is approximately 99.99% of you) I am a huge fan of not just old video games, but also old cartoons and animation. I have always really enjoyed the stylings of Friz Freleng (Pink Panther, Ant and Aardvark) and Hanna-Barbera, particularly works from the 1960s and 70s. We thought this time around, it might be a lot of fun to explore those styles and see what we could do with those as inspiration.

SteamWorld Heist

Yesterday, NintendoLife published an interview with Brjann Sigurgeirsson, CEO of Image & Form. It covers various topics, such as SteamWorld Heist’s performance on Nintendo 3DS so far, how excting it is for Image & Form to see their games in stores, how important those retail releases are for the series and the company, and more.

Here’s an excerpt:

Around ten years ago we made PC/Mac CD-ROM retail games for a Scandinavian publisher. While it was exciting to see stuff we had made on store shelves, they still weren’t our games. This time it’s completely different. And while it may sound very straightforward putting two existing games onto a disc, very much work must gone into testing and what have you. Everything has to work flawlessly, otherwise the whole batch of discs are useless. In this case, it feels very good to have Nintendo around to approve it.

Flight of Light
