Get to know the people that make great videogames

On last week's episode of Sup Holmes (now in iTunes and t-shirt form), we were introduced to Mr. Jeff Luke, formerly of 5TH Cell and current director at WayForward. We spoke with Jeff about how to fake it to make it, what it was like to be a part of the Scribblenauts craze that hit at E3 2009, how it feels to see the series move on without his involvement, being discriminated against for being Mexican when you are not Mexican, singing the theme song for Double Dragon Neon, his current work on Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby in 8-Bit Land, and a lot more

Jeff and Regular Show creator J.G. Quintel quickly bonded over a mutual appreciation of the Sega Master System, and that bond was big influence on their game's development. Specifically, the character switching hook of lesser known platformer Psycho Fox helped to inspire Regular Show's multi-mode mechanics. Blaster Master was also a big inspiration for Jeff. Knowing that has me all the more confident that the game is in good hands. 

Thanks again to Jeff for hanging out with us, and tune in this Sunday at 1pm PST/4pm EST as WayForgust continues with Ducktales Remastered's Austin Ivansmith. It's going to be spec-quack-ular.
