Enjoy Valentine’s Day the Sentai way with Chroma Squad’s Mark Venturelli

Sup Holmes every Sunday at 2:30pm EST!

[Sup Holmes is a weekly talk show for people that make great video games. It airs live every Sunday at 4:00pm EST on YouTube, and can be found in Podcast form on Libsyn and iTunes.]

[Update: Show’s over folks! Other than a brutal sunspot attack in the last ten minutes of the broadcast, the whole thing went really well. The rerun should be up soon, but in the meantime, here’s a trailer for a spooky new Relic Hunters Zero update. The game is totally free, with no attempts at monetization of any kind. Mark’s only motivation in making it and releasing it to the public was love. Happy Valentine’s Day indeed!] 

Today on Sup Holmes we’re happy to welcome Mark Venturelli of Rogue Snail to the program. Mark is probably best know for his work on Chroma Squad, the Power Rangers-meets-Sim City Super Sentai tactical RPG sensation, but that’s far from the only title he’s worked on. We’ll be talking to him about why Chroma Squad became such a hit, what it was like to be on the receiving end of legal action from Saban, and a lot more. 

Join us at 2:30pm EST for the who cyborg ninja Vs. kaiji ikimashou extravaganza.

Just like in a Gameboy game... a nice tight little world... and all its inhabitants... made out of little building blocks... Why can't these little pixels be the building blocks for love..? For loss... for understanding"- James Kochalka, Reinventing Everything part 1 "I wonder if James Kolchalka has played Mother 3 yet?" Jonathan Holmes
