Towerfall creator talks multi-platform support and more


10:30 AM on 07.27.2013



Last Sunday on Sup Holmes (now on iTunes) we met the young talented heartthrob named Matt Thorson. Matt has made tons of games, more than I knew before starting the show, which was embarrassing. I thought I'd played them all, but I somehow missed the Metroidvania-style action adventure title An Untitled Story, which is particularly shameful because it's free. Wait a minute, almost all of Matt's games are free! That's amazing! You should play them. 

Matt's been making games since he was 14, often for no financial reward. He's paid his dues, which should make you slightly less jealous of the fact that he's currently got Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft all barking at him to port his latest game to their consoles. We talked about his plans for Towerfall on PC, what consoles other than Ouya are most likely to to get Towerfall next (hint: rhymes with bony), his inspirations (Yoshi's Island and Donkey Kong Country 2 to name a few), his first game, the similarities to Jumper and Super Meat Boy, teaming up with other developers, and so much more. 

Thanks again to Matt for hanging out with us, and join us this Sunday at 1pm PSt/4pm EST when we welcome artist Paul Veer (Super Crate Box, gallery times) to the program. I'm currently sick with stomach flu, so I may throw up! It's going to be great.

Last week's top stories, now in handy haiku form

This past weekend I was up late and feeling loopy, and some haikus about a Flash game nobody cares about fell out of that state. Struck with inspiration, I thought, "Why can't all news be digested 17 syllables at a time?" Th...more

Hot Take: Nidhogg makes ritual sacrifice fun!

If you've got a lot of controllers and a lot of friends, these past couple years have been tailor-made for you. Between games like Towerfall (great), Samurai Gunn (great), Super Smash Bros for Wii U (okay), Divekick (ba...more

My interview with the voice of Vegeta didn't go so well

I was surprised to find myself given the opportunity to interview Christopher Sabat; the founder of voice over studio, Okratron500, and the voice actor for Vegeta, and many other Dragon Ball characters. I've been a huge Drag...more
