"I was trying to think of things we could add into the game without messing up the dev [development] schedule," Killian said. "Well, one of the things I remembered was there was an arcade board hack to play X-men Vs. Street Fighter, where you could play as Apocalypse."
"I remembered my arcade had it," Killian continues. "It wasn't like I was sitting there after school everyday 'I have to play as Apocalypse', but I would fool around with it and I had a good time. So I thought, that had to be easy because the character is already in there. So we did and it all started with an arcade hack."
It's pretty neat to think that a fun throwaway mode's roots come all the way from someone tinkering with an arcade board back in the late '90s. So the next time you're modifying a game, just remember, you too may be inspiring the minds of future game developers around the world.
