Fish Slapping and Fighting Game design with Kerfuffle dev Nathan Ranney

Sup Holmes every Sunday!

[Sup Holmes is a weekly talk show for people that make great video games. It airs live every Sunday afternoon on YouTube, and can be found in podcast form on Libsyn and iTunes.]

[Update: Show’s over folks! The rerun should be up soon, but in the meantime, here’s Nathan talking to Street Fighter pro Gootecks about some of the same stuff we just talked about. It’s like my show, but better.]

Today at 2:30pm, tune into Sup Holmes live with Nathan ‘Ratcasket” Ranney, creator of Kerfuffle. Inspired by Samurai Gun and Street Fighter, Kerfuffle is currently poised for release sometime in 2016. The game as the kind of mass appeal mixed with potential depth that’s gone on to lead many other like games to millions in sales, so we thought it might be good to get Nathan on the show before he’s too rich and famous to bother with us. Also, he tells us that watching Sup Holmes was one of the big reasons he got into game development, so we figured we should capitalize on that good will before I go and say something upsetting like “Neil Degrasse Tyson seems like a bad person”. 

Even though I just said that, hopefully Nathan will still be willing to show up at 2:30pm to talk with us today. Tune into the live broadcast to find out for yourself!
