Sup Holmes gets stabbed by J.S. Joust's Douglas Wilson


2:45 PM on 12.02.2012




[Destructoid's Director of Communications Hamza Aziz asked Jonathan Holmes to make a show called 'Sup, Holmes?' so that Destructoid could later sell a t-shirt that says 'Sup, Holmes?' on it. This is that show. Subscribe to the podcast feed and find more episodes here.]

We've been doing Sup, Holmes for about 9 months now, and barely a week goes by that one of our guests doesn't bring up Die Gute Fabrik's Johann Sebastian Joust. The competitive, non-video videogame has slowly become a Call of Duty-style cultural touchstone for game developers. Everyone who makes games seems to be playing it, despite the fact that it hasn't been commercially released yet. In fact, it may never see commercial release, unless the Sportsfriends Kickstarter (which includes J.S. Joust and 3 other excellent local multi-player games) makes it's funding quota. Scary!

We'll be talking with Die Gute Fabrik's Douglas Wilson about the inspirations behind J.S. Joust, other excellent Die Gute Fabrik titles like Where-Is-My-Heart?, the recent push among smaller developers to take the local multi-player experience in exciting new directions, My Neighbor Totoro, and much more. Join us at 1pm PST/4pm EST for some serious beard face friendship and game development chat!

Review: Axiom Verge

It seems like a foregone conclusion when looking at Axiom Verge that comparisons are going to be made to Metroid. It is, without doubt, similar in more ways than it differs from Nintendo's iconic franchise. The differences matter, though, and Axiom Verge merges classic environment design with new mechanical twists, producing a game that feels both familiar and fresh at the same time.more
