What got you into programming games?
We always wanted to create our own game for a long time, we did some flash game and some mods for Doom, Quake 1&2 and others games.
And 4 years ago we decided to create our own game and studying for it.
What development tools or coding did you use?
We are developing the game with CryEngine, It’s a powerful engine and it’s perfect for a FPS, and all classical 2d/3d/audio software ( photoshop, blender, wwise…)
What hurdles did you have making your current game?
We had some skills in 3D and some notions of coding, but we had to learn all the others needed skills by ourselves.
But the biggest hurdles is the lack of funds.
After the completion of the game what game will you make?
This game is in episodic content, so after the Episode 1 we’ll make others Episodes. 🙂
We have lot of other ideas for others games too, but for the moment we focus on this project.
What other games have you made you made?
We never released any game, this is our first try.
My favourite computer was my Amiga and console the Megadrive do you have a favourite?
Piel: I had an Atari 520st, it was a very great computer , but of course I sold it and bought the Amiga when I saw the opening of Blood Money on the Commodore ! I began to learn graphic tools like disney animation studio and then deluxe paint (4). And my favorite console was the super famicom. I was stunned by the mode 7 .
Manu: My favorite is my actual Win PC, but i will always love and miss my Atari 2600.
What is your favourite retro game?
Piel: I can’t answer with only one title, but I think it was my Amiga period with games from psygnosis (shadow of the beast,lemmings…), Team 17 (alien breed, worms…), or the Bitmap Brothers (Xenon, Speedball,gods…) and a special mention to “B.A.T”(ubisoft), “another world” and “les voyageurs du temps” (Eric Chahi/Delphine Software)
Manu: “Hero” on Atari 2600
Do you still game on the current consoles if so whats your favourite game?
Piel: I play on my PC but I like to play sometimes with a SNK emulator, and my favorite is Metal Slug.
Manu: I play only on Win PC, and atm my favorite game is “Dirty bomb”
Whats the worst game you have ever played?
Piel: No idea. Sorry.. ^^
Manu: “Candy crush”, but it was just for trying ! i swear ! #shame
Finally what game or feature would you like to see on Retrogamesmaster in the future?
