RunbowRunbow

Yesterday, 13AM Games published a new Runbow Runblog, where Unai (Technical Director) talks about some of the weird bugs they encountered during development, and, more importantly, how they went and fixed them.

As explained in the blog post, “Runbow is a huge game, with tons lots of mechanics and modes, nine-player multiplayer both local and online, very refined gameplay and physics”. And yet, they only had two coders, so as you can imagine, there were a lot of bugs they had to squash before release. Click here to learn more about the weirdest bugs they had to deal with!

3Souls

Yesterday, NintendoLife published an interview with Arturo Chaves Maza from Red Column, about 3Souls (a puzzle platformer coming soon to Wii U, in several episodes).

It covers various topics, such as the broad concept of the game (what it’s all about), how important that concept and the story are, the extensive use of the GamePad, how the character’s emotions affect the gameplay, the episodic approach, the co-op mode, the biggest challenges they faced during development (and how helpful Nintendo was), and more.
