Talking Videoball with the one-of-a-kind Tim Rogers


7:30 PM on 04.16.2014



Get our own Jonathan Holmes and Action Button Entertainment's Tim Rogers in a room together and magic will happen. Here the two are at PAX East discussing Videoball, a "real-time strategy shooting sports game" that's far deeper than its simplistic art would seem to indicate.

"The original idea for this was I wanted to make a game as deep as StarCraft that used only one button and all of my ideas were really bad ... This is definitely, absolutely not that," explains Tim. If you watch only one of Holmes' PAX interviews, I'd make it this one.

A little something extra for those of you left scratching your head after the interview. Excuse me while I leave this video playing in a separate tab for its absurdly catchy tune.

Risk of Rain's new engine should mean less slowdown

Risk of Rain is a great little action platformer that'll make you feel like garbage before building you up into an unstoppable force of destruction. Try it, sometime! You can even bring friends along. Developer Hopoo Games ha...more
