DuckTales director reacts to reviews, exudes maximum love


10:00 AM on 08.24.2013



On last week's Sup Holmes (now on iTunes and t-shirts), we welcomed Austin Ivansmith back to the program. We heard all about his fine arts background and formative experiences which brought him to game development in his first appearance on the show, so this time we concentrated on his biggest project to date -- DuckTales Remastered

There was a lot to talk about, which lead to use going almost 30 minutes longer than usual. Taking on a largely abandoned but still beloved Disney/Capcom franchise like DuckTales is no small potatoes, but Austin clearly had the heart and mind necessary to make it happen. Reuniting the original voice actors from the show, bringing on original artists from Disney, staying true to the spirit of the show and the game while adding new content while cutting design elements that limited the original title, and putting it on almost every console out today took a lot of risk taking, know how, and inspiration.

You'd imagine that after having put so much of yourself into a project, that reading a few damning reviews would be disillusioning, but Austin remains cool and respectful towards the game's detractors. There was a whole lot more we talked about, but if I recap it all hear, you'll be reading this all day . 

Thanks again to Austin for hanging out with us, and tune in this Sunday at 1pm PST/4pm EST when we welcome Yacht Club Games and WayForward composer Jake "Virt" Kaufman. Watch as WayForgust continues on to victory.
