Shawn Allen talks Rockstar, headbutts, and Treachery


3:30 PM on 11.06.2013



A week and a half ago on Sup Holmes (now on iTunes) we spent an hour and a half getting to know Shawn Alexander Allen of A Nu Challenger. We covered a vast sea of topics, like growing up with a Repo Mom, his path towards working for one of the biggest developers in the world, how he created some of your favorite Rockstar Games trailers, the modded Xbox that lead to a headbutt at GameStop, the Wu Tang Clan Vs. the term "Black Nerd," the reasons for Capcom's continued fall from grace, Tropes Vs. Black Guys in Videogames, and of course, his upcoming game Treachery in Beatdown City.

For those who don't know, Treachery looks to take autobiographical content, inject it with a personal language of parody and social commentary, fuel it with classic RPG and beat-'em- up game design, and wrap it all around a love/hate relationship with New York City. If Earthbound and GTA had a baby, it wouldn't look much like either of its parents, but it might look a lot like Treachery in Beatdown City

Thanks again to Shawn for coming on the show, and be sure to tune in this Sunday at 1pm PST/4pm EST when we welcome Holly Pickering (Traveler's Tales, White Paper Games) back to the program.

It's been a while since I've espoused my love for Rain World. It looks even smoother in this interesting Kickstarter update, as the game has transitioned to Unity. The update is a good read, but if you're just here for the gifs, well, I feel you. Ain't nothing wrong with that.more

Just getting over the PTSD of your last visit to Freddy Fazbear's Pizza? Well too damn bad, because it's time to get spooked again. Normally I'd roll my eyes at the idea of a sequel being announced barely three months since t...more
