Sup Holmes jumps the shark with Derrick the Deathfin

Developer Gordon Midwood needs a bigger boat


[Destructoid’s Director of Communications Hamza Aziz asked Jonathan Holmes to make a show called ‘Sup, Holmes?’ so that Destructoid could later sell a t-shirt that says ‘Sup, Holmes?’ on it. This is that show. Subscribe to the podcast feed and find more episodes here.]

Everyone! Welcome Gordon Midwood, creator of Lilt Line and co-creator of Derrick the Deathfin (a game you can win) to the Sup Holmes show! Do a welcome! Do a welcome HARD.

I’m excited to talk to Gordon about his experiences developing for various consoles (he’s been quite outspoken about WiiWare sales in the past), how it feels to have had a game with an all dubstep soundtrack before it was cool, what inspired the jump from developing a totally abstract game like Lilt Line to putting together a character based, cute as a button, cardboard death-fest like Derrick, and much more.

Please join us in the chat as we break bread and make merry. The show starts at 1pm PST/4pm EST. Don’t be late!
