Earlier in April we took a road trip to ECGC. While we were at this serious and important conference for game developer, we some how tricked fine and upstanding members of the development community into talking to us about the evolving market, monetization, beards and even Space Jam. The above interview is one such occurrence.
Julian Spillane of Team Reaverbot joined us at the Mega Man-athon booth to talk about his upcoming fan game, Mega Man 25th Anniversary. We played through the demo together (which you can download yourself by clicking here) and he gave us an exclusive preview to some of the upcoming features that'll release with the game. Do you want alternative tracks for every stage in the game? You got 'em! How about NSF (NES Sound Files)? Those are there too! Also I'm not sure if it was an exclusive but he mentioned some details about Amp Man's stage and I'm super excited to play through a Mega Man styled music based platform stage. Everything is in the video above so check it out now! Editors Note: Sorry about the video gap in the middle. I included the question I asked but the camera went down for about 30 seconds while moving into a new position.
I've got bad news guys. Thanks to me the Protomen have decided to not do Act III. Now before you start sending me hate mail and threatening to kick the Dennis DeYoung out of me. Realize this is a joke! (Seriously, don't bug me about Act III) Anyways, this wasn't my strongest interview. I honestly just turned into a giant fan and the words didn't connect. That's ok though, Panther and Commander took over the Mega Man-athon and threatened to come to your house if you don't like STYX. I can get behind that.
The Megas sat down with the Mega Man-athon crew at MAGfest 11 and we caught up with them on their favorite Mega Man titles and when we can look forward to History Repeating: Red! I'm still kicking myself that I missed out on them and Power Glove doing the Power Rangers theme song. Oh and sorry about the camera jiggles, I think our camera man couldn't contain his excitement about the whole band being there and became a little unsteady.
