First of all, Welcome to Retrogamesmaster.
Thanks, I am glad to answer your questions.
What is your first gaming experience?
It was in a deep childhood. There were some cassette tape games that our
father showed us. I remember Tetris and Paratrooper (that’s it:
What got you into programming games?
Lessons in Computer Science. I start programming at the school. But I
understood that I pretty bad programmer, and now I make art and game
design only. Thanks my brother who became a really good programmer, so I
don’t need to be a programmer at all.
What development tools or coding did you use?
We use Unigine engine for make our game Sumoman. Other tools are
standart for most developers.
What hurdles did you have making your current game?
We don’t have enough team for this game. We make Sumoman in team of 2 –
me and my brother. And there is a lot of work for only two guys. We do
all the stuff with the exception of sound design. Sometime it seems me
that this work has no end.
After the completion of the game what game will you make?
We don’t have plans yet. I have a lot of ideas, but it will depends on
how much we can earn with Sumoman.
What other games have you made you made?
I was game designer and artist at Oil Rush (http://oilrush-game.com/) as
the part of Unigine Corp. There was some more little games, but Oil Rush
is the most important project for me. After Sumoman of course.
My favourite computer was my Amiga and console the Megadrive do you
have a favourite?
We played Dendy. After it we had old russian PC named Neuron (something
like that: http://www.leningrad.su/jj/2009/neuron.jpg). We could play
some old games on it. I remebmer that we spent a lot of time playing Elite.
What is your favourite retro game?
Another World and Prince of Persia. And Elite.
Do you still game on the current consoles if so whats your favourite game?
Nope. I played Another World once. I mean Windows edition. And play
sometimes Prince of Persia in DOS emulator for some game design features.
Whats the worst game you have ever played?
I don’t play game if I don’t like it. I don’t remember any game I played
that I could name “the worst”.
Finally what game or feature would you like to see on Retrogamesmaster
