Playable Pauline, shipping 120 games and #IDARB with Mike Mika

Get to know the people who make great videogames

[Update: Show’s over folks! Man, that was one whopper of a conversation. Turns out Mike has worked directly with Jimmy Fallon, Nintendo, Adam Sandler, Disney, and almost John Lithgow. Definitely of the most eye opening episodes of Sup Holmes yet. The rerun should be up in a few days. In the meantime, here’s Bacon and Eggs playing #IDARB against some dudes with explosive diarrhea.]

Today on Sup Holmes we welcome Mike Mika to the program. Mike has been working in game development for a long time, having contributed to Dark Void Zero, Halo 2600, Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix and many more. He made the headlines last year after creating a hack of Donkey Kong for his daughter that allowed you to play as Pauline. Now he’s taking that “play as whoever you want” concept to the next level with #IDARB, a game that lets you play as anyone ever, doing whatever the heck you want. 

We’re starting the show at 4pm EST. Tune in live to meet a successful game developer and maybe win a copy of his latest game. It’ll be fun!

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
