Interview by Peter Ward
What is your first gaming experience?
The very first game I remember playing was Battleship on USSR arcade machine back in 1989.
What got you into programming games?
My mad passion for games since childhood. I dreamt of creating games since I played them on my ZX Spectrum.
What development tools or coding did you use?
I used Unity 3D, Visual Studio, Mono Develop, Spine, Photoshop, Paint .NET.
What hurdles did you have making your current game?
Ninja Dude vs Zombies in its early versions was quite difficult and dynamic to play. Game balance is the main hurdle. I had to develop progressive balance so that the player could start playing smoothly. Then the pace increases gradually to keep the player alert and entertained during the session. What’s more, the majority of players doesn’t understand the tricky part of the gameplay so I had to improve the tutorial of the game. It took me 3 to 4 iterations, but still I think there’s room for improvement.
After the completion of the game what game will you make?
It’s a secret 😉
