Will Smith, guns, and 'feel bad' games with Paul Greasley


11:30 PM on 04.03.2013



Last week's Sup Holmes (now on iTunes) had me biting my tongue at a constant pace. Paul "Farmer Gnome" Greasely is one of those developers who takes their own amazing ideas for granted in a way that leaves you wanting to shake them and scream "YOU ARE SO GREAT YOU MORON!" 

For instance, Paul has an idea for a rhythm game about Will Smith dancing to Will Smith songs. You control Smith with both analog sticks on the 360 control, performing such moves as the "Will Smith spin." The goal is to solve the financial crisis. Carlton is available in 2P co-op. 

This is an idea that Paul thought maybe wasn't that good. The game is currently playable, but he was thinking he may not release it. Doesn't that make you want to shake him too?

We also talked about how he got started in development, his upcoming "2D Platformer survival Animal Crossing" titled Under the Ocean, the plan to implement 11 different characters (and 11-player simultanious co-op) to his western shoot 'em up A Fist Full of Gun, any possible parallels between "feel bad"  IGF winner Cart Life and his TIG Source winning "feel bad" game Edmund, the Tupac-alypse, and a lot more. Thanks again to Paul for being on the show, and tune in this Sunday at 1pm PST/4pm EST when we welcome confirmed hunk Steve Swink (Scale, Exswinkbike). It will not be a waste of time.
