An Interview with Avishay Mizrav by Peter Ward
What is your first gaming experience?
My first real gaming console was the Atari.
What got you into creating games?
What development tools or coding did you use?
The first game I started making was a point and click adventure game, I started with AGS, then switched to winterMute engine, then finally to Construct 2.
These days I’m learning Unity for future projects.
What hurdles did you have making your current game?
I was still learning a lot in the process of making my first game, so there were a lot of hurdles and changes along the way.
After the completion of the game what game will you make?
Right now we are working on a more spin-off for Bad Pad, called Bad Run Turbo Edition which is aimed more for mobile and tablet, where Bad Pad was for PC only.
What other games have you made?
Aside for Bad Pad and Bad Run, I started with a few small mobile games, to get the hang of it and I developed a few dozen mini-games and learning games as a freelancer for other companies.
You can read all about it on my devblog:
My favourite computer was my Amiga and console the Megadrive do you have a favourite?
I was always a PC freak, from a very young age. I loved that I had access to all the files and complete freedom to wonder around.
I remember making my own Dune 2 expansion pack when I was about 10 years old, by basically editing the original files with a text editor. This was probably my first experience in game dev.
What is your favourite retro game?
See my previous answer 🙂
Do you still game on the current consoles if so what’s your favourite game?
I do not own any gaming consoles at this time. When I game I do it on the PC, I’m also more fond of playing with the keyboard+mouse then with a gamepad.
Whats the worst game you have ever played?
That is a difficult and very broad question, I played many bad and obscured games in my time, each for different reasons.
Finally what game or feature would you like to see on Retrogamesmaster in the future?
