What is your first gaming experience?
My first gaming experience was with the Gameboy. Super Mario and Castlevania were my favourites games to play back then.
What got you into programming games?
I have a vision for a certain style of games that I wanted to create. That motivation got me into programming which at that time was flash actionscript.
What development tools or coding did you use?
For ‘Anti-Cast’, I am using Unity and Playmaker. Playmaker is a great tool for artists like myself that requires not much programming knowledge for Unity.
What hurdles did you have making your current game?
The marketing area of the game is probably the most challenging part. Most of my time has to be devoted on creating the game but now I have to also devote part of my time to promoting the game online. It’s just alot of work for one person to do.
After the completion of the game what game will you make?
I have alot of ideas, one of them leans towards a sci-fi game or perhaps a fantasy game based on reality.
What other games have you made you made?
I made a few flash games which are point & click adventures, quite simliar to room escape games. The current Anti-Cast game was a remake from my flash game back in 2011.
My favourite computer was my Amiga and console the Megadrive do you have a favourite?
Probably the Playstation since it has really cool games.
What is your favourite retro game?
The retro game that I can remember having fun playing and finishing it is Super Mario.
Do you still game on the current consoles if so whats your favourite game?
I haven’t play games on console for quite awhile after my PS3 broke down. But my favourite console games is definitely between Uncharted 2 & Metal Gear solid 4.
Whats the worst game you have ever played?
There is this one game that I regret spending money on which is a old PC game. I can’t remember the title but it’s about a spider-like robot with really weird gameplay.
Finally what game or feature would you like to see on Retrogamesmaster in the future?
I like watching youtube videos, perhaps Retrogamesmaster can do gameplay walkthrough or review in video form. It could be interesting.
