Another one of our GDC interviews has recently appeared online. This one is a podcast interview with the Experimental Game Dev Podcast Show (see our GDC Diary, Part 2). In it, Nic & Bruce talk about why we developed the myLifeCollected range for DSiWare and how these apps influenced the making of Spirit Hunters Inc. We also talk about Pop/Pop Plus: Solo and escapeVektor, and why we make games for consoles rather than mobile phones or PCs.

When the guys from Australia’s MMGN website got in touch for an interview, Nic was there to answer their questions on being an indie developer, the state of the Australian market, and of course Spirit Hunters Inc & escapeVektor: Chapter 1. See and hear what he had to say to Stephen Heller from MMGN.
Indie Dev Insight – Nnooo
It takes drive, motivation and a creative flair to be successful in the games industry, and Sydney-based developer Nnooo have all of its bases covered. With a successful game under its belt and a series of popular applications for the Nintendo DSi to their name, we recently had the chance to catch up with founder Nic Watt and discuss his thoughts on the industry, and find out a little more about their upcoming projects.

When Matt Sainsbury from Digitally Downloaded came to have a look at escapeVektor: Chapter 1, he also took some time to catch up with Nic. Based in Sydney, Matt knows us reasonably well by now and Nnooo is featured in this month’s edition of the online magazine. Once you’ve finished reading pages 16-19, have a flick through the rest of it. We think it’s well worth a read!
Next up on the GDC interviews is Gamespot. They interviewed Nic on the final afternoon of GDC. We think he looks pretty fresh considering the hectic week he had at the conference. Have a look at our GDC Diaries for the full story but first check out the interview. (more…)
Another week, another interview! This time Nic was interviewed by Cameron Litland from The Speed Gamers. The interview covers the origin of the name “Nnooo”, the reasons for making the myLifeCollected series and how myLifeCollected helped us to develop Spirit Hunters Inc. And of course, a chat about Spirit Hunters Inc & escapeVektor, and what we’re planning for the Nintendo 3DS. At around 16 minutes, this bitesize interview is well worth a listen!
Go directly to The Speed Gamers website for the interview.
We recently had our first team interview! The interviewers were our old friend Daan Koopman, who has interviewed Nic a few times before, and Daan’s colleague Jason Davidson. We talked in detail about Spirit Hunters Inc, escapeVektor, our future plans and a few other things. It was quite a long one, about an hour and a quarter, with plenty of details on the upcoming games! Daan and Jason are starting up a new site called Moving Platforms. Knowing these guys, it is bound to be a great success. Keep an eye out for their future content through Daan’s twitter account.

Friday March 4th – Interviews, Secret Talks & Pure Entertainment
Thankfully we had a quiet night on Thursday because Friday was a media onslaught with every interview on camera! First up was News 10 from the ABC network. They were meant to be doing 3 interviews over the course of an hour, but as the other devs didn’t show (not any of the guys mentioned in part 2 by the way), Nic had a full hour with them! Not only did he showcase escapeVektor and Spirit Hunters Inc, he did an additional interview on the madness of Australia not having an R18+ rating. We’re looking forward to that coming out! (more…)
We know you enjoy keeping up to date with what we’re working on and checking out what we’re up to when we attend conferences, so we thought we’d give you an insight into what exactly we got up to when we went to GDC in San Francisco. Here’s a little run-up info followed by a day by day account of our fun but hectic trip. (more…)
Just before we fly out to attend GDC in San Francisco, we thought we’d release our new Spirit Hunters Inc promotional video. We’ve also released a load of cool screenshots. Just go to www.spirithuntersinc.com to see them. Enjoy!
