Punching Robots 2084

With Your Host, Rob Remakes

You and me both

 I just really wish I had one big success so I could carry on making games the rest of my life and just give them away.

Jeff Minter, 2023

Fabulous interview with Jeff and Giles up on Eurogamer today. It’s been a real treat seeing so many places take up the opportunity to interview Team Llamasoft with the release of Akka Arrh right round the corner. Word is the game is fucking great too.

That quote though, up there? I wish they could have that too. It’s a videogame crime that the best folks in the business have to struggle to get shit done. As much as I bloody love the old games, Jeff and Giles have been knocking it out the park from (and including) Space Giraffe and they’re good people too. Proper criminal that the money hasn’t followed! I reckon videogames needs a way of gifting a late career renaissance Johnny Cash style to folk to cover this sort of eventuality until we get the rest sorted.
