Hello Games: The Interview

Following on from yesterdays feature on Hello Games and their new game Joe Danger, we were lucky enough to grab the four friends living their dream for an interview about life, the universe and just about everything.

Q. Was it scary stepping into the unknown and walking away from established developers and going it alone?

“It’s pretty much the scariest thing you can do. Genuinely, I mean I really loved the games I worked on and the people I worked with, and that’s really hard to leave. I think most people know, trying to make a new game is one of the hardest and probably silliest things you can try to do, so it’s fair to say we were nervous and still are. It’s tempered by a fair measure of excitement too. Depending on the day we’ll wet ourselves for one of those two reasons, excitement or fear.” (more…)

Hello Games: Joe Danger

Hello Games are four friends that left their very successful careers with UK developers such as Criterion, Sumo, Kuju, EA and Climax to go it alone and live the indie dream by creating their own studio.

Although they have loved every minute of helping to create great games like Burnout, Geometry Wars Galaxies, Sega Superstars Tennis, MotoGP and Black, the time has come for them to forge their own path. They must unleash the unexpressed charm and creativity hitherto stopping them from sleeping at night.

Hello Games say their desire is to “make games that will put a stoopid grin on your face”. Their first title Joe Danger will make most gamers who are beginning to tire of yet another Gears of War or COD sequel sit up and take notice. (more…)
