Adult Swim, success, and failure with PixelJam


9:45 PM on 02.22.2013



Last Sunday on Sup Holmes (now on iTunes), Rich Grillotti and Miles Tilman of Pixeljam Games tolerated my ridiculous blanket statements regarding art student stereotypes and bared their souls to me. It was hard to tell where these guys started and where their games ended. Everything I've ever loved about PixelJam products, Gamma Bros.' simplistic but charged radiance, Potatoman Seeks the Troof's existentialist tension between optimism and nihilism -- it was all there in the brains of these men. I was so happy to see it!

We also got to learn more autobiographical facts about the developers, like how they first got started, how their relationship with Adult Swim games helped them to survive, and much more. Oh, and they were quick to show off some exclusive WIPs from their upcoming title Glorkbot's Mini-Adventure. If you like Metroid, Sonic, Galaga, or anything good, you should check out it.

Come back this Sunday at 1pm PST/4pm EST when we welcome Austin Ivansmith of Mighty Switch Force HD to the program. Rumor has it that Austin and WayForward put the game on sale for just $5 in honor of Austin's Sup Holmes debut, so if you save some money on the game, you have me to thank for it. Give me those thanks live on Sunday please.
