Sup Holmes rings in the new year with Fara and INK creator Zack Bell

Sup Holmes every Sunday at 2:30pm EST!

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

[Update: Thanks for watching everyone! Rerun should be up soon. In the meantime, here’s popular Youtube man Markiplier playing INK by Zack Bell games. He is unhappy.]

It’s time for the first Sup Holmes of 2016, and what better way to kick off another 12 months of being alive than with Zack Bell, creator of the critically acclaimed, color-splatter platformer INK and upcoming top-down action adventure title Fara & the Eye of Darkness. It’s got really good warthogs, among other things. 

We’ll be talking to Zack about the ins and outs of game development, managing inspiration versus realistic expectations regarding what he’s able to make, his thoughts on the idea that marketing can sometimes backfire on a game, and a lot more. Tune in at 2:30pm EST for the whole bonanza.

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
